Old Trafford winger takes the blame for Capital One Cup exit.
“We gave the ball away for a third goal and we were in complete control of the game at that point,” he told Sky Sports.
“We were playing really good football at that point and all we needed to do was see the game out by keeping possession.
“But Nani decided to try and beat a player, lost the ball and they got a penalty kick against us.”

It’s rare for a manager to so publicly and blatantly name and shame a single player for a defeat but in doing so Sir Alex Ferguson may well be making it perfectly clear that Nani doesn’t have a future at Man United.
The Portuguese winger has been strongly linked with an Old Trafford exit and these latest comments will surely make it clear that the 25 year old winger is not wanted.
For Ferguson to make such a statement, rather than make any mention of the goal Nani scored that looked like being the winner, will shake Nani’s confidence to the core and one can expect that the attacker will leave in January if any decent offer is forthcoming.
