Man Utd star Nani: Sporting Lisbon great grounding for me

Manchester United winger Nani admits coming through the system at Sporting Lisbon was crucial for his development.

Nani says Sporting was the ideal club to kickoff his pro career with.

He told manutd.com: "I learnt so much whilst I was there. There was always someone there to explain to me about things I wasn't sure of and to help me make the right choices and never get distracted by anything bad.

"The people at the club taught me to do the right things on the pitch and I will always be grateful for their support."
