Rocha tells Man Utd's Ferguson: It was Nani's goal

Tottenham defender Ricardo Rocha says Nani's winner for Manchester United was all his on Sunday.

United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has tried to credit the goal to Carlos Tevez, but Rocha told O Jogo: "I didn't expect him to hit the ball so far out. He's a friend of mine and I never would've thought he'd have gambled so far away from goal.

"But the strike had great pace and actually moved in the air. It was a great goal and all the credit must go solely to Nani."

Rocha added: "Everyone on the field congratulated him after the game. He was the best player. I tried to catch up with him in the dressing rooms afterwards, but was unable to."
