Nani disappointed by PFA snub

Manchester United winger Nani has admitted he is "disappointed" not to have been nominated for the PFA Player of the Year award.

Nani was a surprise omission from the seven candidates for the senior award despite being nominated for the Young Player of the Year award.

Nani made it 18 assists for the season after setting up both goals in Saturday's win over Fulham and the 24-year-old admits he is upset not to be in running for the top prize.

"I think I have been doing well, so I am disappointed not to be there," said Nani.


"But there's still a lot of work to do this season. I am strong and hope to focus on my improvements every season and I hope to have more opportunities.

"I don't like to speak about other players or people who make decisions. If I want to be there, I have to show that on the pitch.

"Of course, everyone has an opinion, and I hope next time people will look more to me and what I am doing, if I am doing well."
