Former Manchester United and Portugal player Nani made an appearance in the Vibe with Five podcast alongside his former teammate at the club Rio Ferdinand where they compared the current Red Devils' squad with the one they both were part of back in the glory days when they played in Old Trafford and were the best team in the country.

Nani first was questioned about how the environment was in the dressing room during his time at the club: “Our dressing room was the best I ever had in my life and I learned everything from there because we weren’t just players, we were like soldiers with everything Sir Alex Ferguson was asking us at that moment. We just had to follow his orders. That was amazing”.

When he was asked about what he thinks is the problem with the current Man United team he said that even though the talent is there, they simply aren’t passionate enough: “There is no hunger. There is no desire to win. There are a lot of talented players but they don’t want to get tired to win. They prefer not to sweat”.

The Portuguese man concluded that the attitude shown by the players at the moment wouldn’t be accepted back in the day when Sir Alex Ferguson was in charge. He claimed that if the manager would have seen you walking around and not running to help the team, he wouldn’t hesitate to take you out of the pitch.

Nani’s time at the Theatre of Dreams

The 35-year-old arrived at Manchester United back in 2007 from Sporting Lisbon just like his fellow countryman Cristiano Ronaldo. Both were very similar in terms of talent and potential, but he never reach the level of his former teammate. However, his time at Old Trafford was very successful as he won four Premier League titles, one Champions League, two League Cups, one Club’s World Cup, and four Community Shields.
