Man Utd's Nani: Lisbon return emotional for Ronaldo and I

Manchester United winger Nani admits facing old club Sporting Lisbon tomorrow night will be emotional.

"It's going to be emotional going back," said the winger, likely to be among the substitutes. "My heart is in Lisbon but, as a pro, I want nothing other than a United win.

"I've spoken to Cristiano (Ronaldo) and we both feel there could be a few early nerves about returning home. But if we can score first the pressure will be on Sporting and having Wayne (Rooney) and Cristiano back gives us an extra edge.

"Wayne's recovery is a real positive, particularly with two huge battles coming up against Sporting and then Chelsea on Sunday."
