Nani may not have been the most popular figure on the Manchester United squad, but he certainly got a rapturous welcome when he returned to Sporting Lisbon.

As part of the deal that is set to see Marcos Rojo go to Manchester United, the Portugal winger is coming home on a loan to the club he played for before he went to Old Trafford.

Judging by the welcome, the 27-year-old has got off to a pretty good start.
