"There's competition there Nani played really well for us the whole of last season but when Valencia came back his form was so good that I couldn't leave him out of the team," said Ferguson.
"Nani was unfortunate not to be picked for the Champions League final but he's maturing all the time. He's a really, really good player. His personality is improving, too. He used to be a quiet lad, but he's now come out of his shell. I think he'll be challenging for a spot this season and he'll play a lot of games."
