Readers of my work will be aware that there is no love lost between me and Nani. I don't doubt his talent, but I do question his commitment and work rate.
Once again tonight he showed why he is thoroughly undeserving of the substantial pay raise he is rumoured to be chasing.
Antonio Valencia's form has forced him to move from his favoured right wing, but that doesn't explain his lack of form or shocking attitude.
He still flashes brilliance and some of his play tonight was exceptional, but these moments are too often followed with moments of poor play. He has never been consistent but he has become less and less so with each passing game.
He has never been a hard worker and this lack of work rate has left Patrice Evra exposed, and open to huge criticism. Evra is not the player he was, but a bit of help would lessen the impact of this demise.
His saving grace down the years has been his ability to conjure up goals from nothing. His finishing this season leads me to question if he is the modern day incarnation of Billy from Billy's Boots fame, and if he has lost said boots.
He has had numerous chances to get on the scoresheet this season and failed on every occasion, due to either poor shot selection or just poor finishing.
Tonight he was gifted, at the expense of Robin van Persie, a chance to break his duck. Instead of just smashing the penalty home, he embarked on one of those stuttered run-ups that so often end in failure. The result was a poor shot that was easily saved.
On top of his physical failings his attitude has been less than stellar. At one stage this evening he was fouled in the box, but instead of playing to the whistle he started rolling around complaining. As a result, Galatasaray were given the time and space to counterattack, and only two fine saves from David de Gea saved United.
United's game relies on creativity from the flanks, and an out-of-form Nani has huge ramifications for United's attack.
