Man Utd winger Nani: I do not like Ronaldo comparison

Manchester United winger Nani doesn't want to be compared with former teammate Cristiano Ronaldo.

Nani is now producing the form that had him dubbed the 'new Ronaldo'.

But he says: "I don't like to compare us. I respect Cristiano and he respects me a lot. He's an unbelievable player.

"I try to be the best I can and I am working every day to get better. I hope he can be the best at what he does and me the best at what I do.

"I am not jealous. We have one year in age between us but he started to play professionally earlier than me. I saw him come to Manchester so early and he gave us a lot of courage in our play.

"It was fantastic to live together because we are quite similar in personality. We played jokes on each other and we played everything; table tennis, snooker, swimming. It was competition all the time."
