Man Utd boss Ferguson: Nani has been immature

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson says Nani is finally beginning to mature.

Following the 3-1 demolition of Arsenal, Ferguson believes Portugal winger Nani is coming of age at United.

Nani maintained his return to form at the Emirates with probably his best performance for United, and Ferguson believes the 23-year-old, bought from Sporting Lisbon in 2007 for £17million, has grown up after a difficult spell.

Ferguson said: "He has been pretty immature since he came to the club, but you are seeing the development now. He is shy boy and you hope games like Arsenal will give him the confidence to know he is a United player."
