Owen Hargreaves admits he risked falling out with Manchester United teammate Nani before scoring his first goal for the club in Saturday's 3-0 victory at Fulham.

With 15 minutes gone, United were given a free-kick on the edge of the Fulham area. The Portugal winger grabbed the ball and clearly didn't want to let it go, so much so that Hargreaves had to forcibly take it off him.

Nani made his feelings clear, but the former Bayern Munich midfielder gave the perfect response by curling in his first goal for the club.

Speaking about the free-kick confrontation, Hargreaves said: "He didn't seem too pleased. He protected the ball at first. He didn't want me to have it. I just took it because I felt I could score.

"He said that if I hadn't scored, then he would have been a bit upset with me, so I'm glad it went in."
