Manchester United flop being himself by mistaking referee as team-mate

Former Manchester United star Nani can be one of two players – the best in the world or, well, the worst.

The Portuguese winger was bought by United back in 2007 with the tag of being the ‘new Cristiano Ronaldo’, and Nani did possess the same flashy dribbling Ronaldo had when he first arrived in Manchester.

But unlike the now Ballon D’or winner, Nani never developed in the same manner as Ronaldo and has now returned to Sporting Lisbon on loan.

Last night he had the chance to prove to the entire world he still has was it takes to mingle with the world’s best when his side faced Chelsea in the UEFA Champions League, but he displayed his usual frustrating performance with a backheel pass to the referee summing up his evening… and career.
