Nani ja Anderson Unitedin riveihin!

Recommended Posts

Tuli Andersonista mieleen, että oli ilmeisesti todella huonossa fyysisessä kunnossa.

 

On tästä jo jonkin aikaa, kun luin, mutta silti. Teki Internacionalissa debyytin ja otettiin 30 minuutin jälkeen pois kentältä, kun oli niin hapoilla. Jouduttiin hoitamaan happikoneilla kentän laidalla tuon jälkeen tai muuta vastaavaa. En oikein muista tarkkaan tai oliko nyt aivan näin, mutta anyhow.

Kyseinen ottelu taidettiin pelata liki 3500m merenpinnan yläpuolella, joten sikäli tuon ymmärtää.

Nani kertoo saaneensa tekstiviestejä Woodylta, ja selittää miksi itki viime viikonloppuisen maalinsa jälkeen:

 

“I receive some texts from Ed Woodward,” Nani says. “He texted me about the goal [on Sunday] and the great season I am having here.”

 

Nani’s effort on Sunday was a vicious, dipping 30-yard left-footer into the top corner after the ball had sat up for him. It was an outstanding goal but not an obvious candidate to set off a reaction that saw him sink to the ground, apparently crying – he had effectively put icing on the cake of a routine win against the Primera Liga’s second-bottom side. He explained after the game that it had prompted thoughts about “personal stuff, that nobody knows about”, and elaborates that it had come at the end of a testing period.

 

“I had a very difficult week so physically it was hard for me to be at my best,” he says. “I was feeling some pain in my leg and I wanted to help the team. In the game before against Wolfsburg [sporting lost 2-0 in the Europa League] I couldn’t do my best. I ended the game wishing I could have done more. I prepared myself to do my best and after the goal I thanked God, who helped me be my best.”

Ei se Nanin paluu enää vaikutakaan niin epätodennäköiseltä..

 

e; 4-3-3:ssa olisi Nanille paikka kuin tilaustyöstä. Ensi syksynä parin pelin jälkeen voidaan jo sanoa, että  "Feels like a new signing"

Tuli muistutettua itseä alla olevan videon kera siitä, miten kova pelaaja Nani oikein olikaan Unitedissa parhaimpina päivinään. Huikeita maaleja mm. Cityä, Chelseaa, Arsenalia sekä Bayernia vastaan. Voi, kun sitä tasaisuutta olisi ollut enemmän ja loukkaantumisia taasen vähemmälti.

Guardian kertoo Nanin siirtyvän mahdollisesti £3,5m hintalapulla Turkkiin.  :rolleyes_ani: Summa voi tuosta vielä nousta, mutta olisihan tuo taas aivan naurettavaa bisnestä ManUlta. Nani on Manchesterissa ns. "finished", mutta ikää on vasta 28v, ja alla ihan kohtalaisen hyvä kausi. Pääasia toki lienee, että saadaan portugalilainen ylipäänsä pois palkkalistalta.

En jaksa kaivella omia viestejäni koskien Nanin aiempaa lähtöä pois seurasta, mutta synkäksihän tämä vetää. Laitetaan Rion jäähyväiskirje tähän:

 

Good luck to Naan Bread (Nani) on his move to Turkey!! Different environment where I believe he will flourish. Questions will be asked whether he will be happy with his utd career? Of course he will be happy.. endless amount of trophies where he played his part.. However, knowing Nani as I do, I do believe he would have wanted more games & to have influenced more consistently during his United tenure!

He was blessed with lots of attributes, having the tools to match most in the world - pace, power in both feet, skill, strength...I could go on. It's one thing having all that it's another putting it all together....week in week out! There aren't many that do and there is the thing that separates Messi & ronaldo from the next tier of Suarez, Neymar, Zlatan etc. Don't get me wrong those are world class players as well but there is tiers with how consistently they produce moments of defining brilliance and it goes on n on thru the tiers of players! A key attribute for any world class player is decision making, when to dribble, when to shoot and when to pass. The players in the top tiers get them decisions right more often than not.

What category Nani sits in now is hard to judge as he hasn't played for man utd for a long time. He produced wonder moments back in Portugal but I have not seen much of him consistently at sporting. For me he had all the attributes to have been in the 2nd n 3rd tiers easily.

Of all the players I've played with during my career, if I wanted someone to beat someone 1 vs 1 & it was do or die he would have been one of my first picks for sure. He can go either way, off either foot, tricky & lightening quick - a defenders nightmare!

There was always going to be comparisons between him and Ronaldo due to the fact they were from Portugal and Lisbon. When he first joined, it would have been great for him to have Ronaldo there for him to learn and adapt - how to train, manage yourself on & off the pitch etc. However the downside to the comparisons came expectation, which is a hard thing to deal with for most especially at a club like Manchester United.

I wish my mate well on his new adventure & I'm sure he will produce moments of excitement & brilliance for his new team & set of fans. Good luck Naan Bread!

Erittäin mielenkiintoinen artikkeli:
 
‘Van Gaal treated us all like kids, it was crazy'

IT DOESN'T take much to bring a smile to Nani’s face. He glows when the conversation turns to teaching his two-year-old son Lucas the rudiments of football in their Istanbul back garden. A similar swell of delight is obvious when asked about the passion with which the fans of Sporting and Fenerbahce embraced him in Portugal and Turkey these past two seasons.
 
Mobbed by thousands at Lisbon airport, Fenerbahce fans mounting his car en route to the Sukru Saracoglu stadium, Nani repaid them with two of the most consistently destructive campaigns of his career. Over the past two years, his output in the modern metrics of key passes, crosses and goals per 90 minutes is on a par or superior to Mesut Ozil, David Silva and Riyad Mahrez, the Premier League’s leading chance creators. Nani is replicating the form he showed at Manchester United in 2010-11 — pursued by Barcelona and named Players’ Player of the Year for a season in which a tally of 28 goals and assists led the top division.
 
“I scored so many goals; a lot of assists,” he recalls. “All the team was giving me the power, the manager too. I was feeling very confident. And when it’s like that you fly. If you have the quality, when your team and your manager show they believe in you, it’s different.”
 
What then of the man who thought it wise to ground Nani at Old Trafford, Louis van Gaal, the manager who refused to believe in a player who could have ticked all the boxes he’s spent two underwhelming years at United moaning about? In the summer of 2014 Van Gaal was full of himself, revelling in reports of the “genius” who dragged Holland to a World Cup semi-final and would now revitalise England’s richest club. Nani played every minute and scored for Portugal at the finals. When Van Gaal declared: “We don’t have wingers of the highest level ... I think we need to buy,” Nani knew he wasn’t wanted.
 
“He didn’t use me a lot in pre-season,” recalls Nani. “I was the player who had the least time in all the games and I was feeling, ‘This coach doesn’t count on me’. He and his assistant were shouting at players like we were kids, like 18-year-olds. And I think, ‘This is not the way to treat us because I am professional, I am training every day, I’m doing nothing wrong, I’m putting quality in the training’.”
 
Albert Stuivenberg was Van Gaal's weapon of choice. The assistant coach berated players for passing at the wrong time, for passing in the wrong way, for not passing at all, for not taking a touch before shooting. It was the antithesis of how an intuitively dangerous forward like Nani had learned to play; a contradiction of the way in which Sir Alex Ferguson had encouraged him to hone an ability to beat opponents with skill or pace then place the ball in the precise position for a colleague to score
 
Nani knows how to make the hardest of attacking decisions quickly. The Dutch pair sought to drill that out of him. “‘You must pass the ball like this’, ‘Come on!’ Blah, blah, blah.
 
“It’s crazy. It’s difficult to play football like that. Because football is instinct. It’s decision. It’s what you see. If you see you must shoot, first touch. If you see you must take a touch, you take a touch. If you dribble, you dribble. That’s why you make different type of goals.”
 
Nani - at that point entering the second season of five-year, £20million contract - was granted a solitary substitute's appearance by Van Gaal. Three days later the Dutchman loaned him to Sporting in a profligate deal from which United took no fee yet paid most of the player's salary. One trophy-winning year later, United compounded the error by selling Nani to Fenerbahce for less than £5m.
 
Tellingly, Nani’s critique of Van Gaal is echoed by players who replaced him at United and some who remained. One of the 64-year-old’s most expensive signings talks of a “coach who could destroy any player’s confidence”. Van Gaal's results, his style of play are so far divorced from Ferguson-era United – still not three years in passing – it's absurd.
 
“Now when you see Manchester, it’s not Manchester,” says Nani. “With all respect to the players who are there, the personality, the mentality is all different. When you see Manchester United go inside the pitch you see a new era. You see that straight away.
 
“Before you had big names, experienced players who represent so many years at the club. Now you see players who are maybe in their first year, their first time in the Premier League. It’s all new.
 
“With Ferguson the manager always said, ‘100% we will score. If we don’t concede we will win the game’. It is different times, people must understand it’s a different coach, different players. They make their choice to renew the club, so now they have to deal with that. It’s not working. But what can you do?”
 
For now, Nani’s focus in on helping Fenerbahce win Turkey’s title. He is recovered from a thigh injury that the specialist who repaired it attributed to the “anger, upset, nerves and stress” of being sidelined by David Moyes without explanation after Ferguson’s replacement convinced him to renew his United contract. His body stronger for the rehab work, with the added maturity of fatherhood, the 29-year-old would like to return to the Premier League.
 
With a modest release clause of €8m written into his contract, Nani should not lack suitors. He knows the league, speaks the language, has survived Manchester winters, still owns a house in Wilmslow. And he speaks fondly of English tackling. “If you play in the Premier League and you don’t have scars, you weren’t on the pitch,” he laughs.
 
“I have unfinished business in England. I would like to have another opportunity in one of these best leagues because when you are on the high level all the people consider at a higher level what you did. Now, for example, if I do something here, or I do something in Portugal, they will say ‘Yes, it’s in Portugal. OK, it’s in Turkey.’
 
“But football is football. What you do here, what you do in Portugal is the same as what you do in England. You must have the opportunity to play, you must be on the pitch. If I did it once when I was in England, if I go there I will do it again. If I go to Spain I will do it. It is all about being confident, being fit and playing with the ball, playing with your teammates. And then be relaxed — be you.”
 
And fly.

Ei taas tarvitse ihmetellä, miksi ainakin Nani, RVP, Chicharito, Di María, Memphis, Januzaj ja Pereira ovat vuorollaan käväisseet hollantilaisen koirankopissa.

Nani elää nyt uutta tulemista kesän EM-kisoissa. Ei sillä, hieno kausihan hänellä oli alla jo Fenerissä, mutta välieriin edenneessä EM-joukkueessa Nani on ollut ehkäpä Portugalin paras hyökkäyspään pelaaja. Eilenkin hieno alustus Sanchesin 1-1-tasoitukseen Puolaa vastaan. 

 

Taas pitää hiukan miettiä, "entä jos". Tilanne oli tietysti vuosi takaperin Unitedissa kovin erilainen, mutta kyllähän se alle viiden miljoonan siirto Turkkiin näin jälkikäteen tuntuu aika järjettömältä näin hyvän pelaajan kohdalla. Varsinkin, kun muistaa, millainen oikean laidan tilanne on pitkään Unitedissa ollut.
