Nani: I’m one of the world’s best


Manchester United winger Nani believes he is one of the world's greatest players on current form.

The Portugal star has showed a huge improvement in his all-round game this term after a number of average showings last season.

But the 23-year-old, who has scored seven times this season and four in his last four outings, is adamant his startling displays deserve to be recognised.

"As a player I think I'm close to being as complete as I can be," he suggested.

"Now I can say I'm one of the top players in the world. I play for the best club in the world and my role in the team is as a decisive player, scoring goals or setting up and so the team can win.

"You have to believe in yourself and believe in your abilities on the pitch. Big games are for big players. I want to be one of the best. I'm not scared to play in the big games, they are the most beautiful in football – you play with very high quality.

"Beautiful football, that's what everyone likes. And that helps lift my performance too."
