"I think I have been doing well, so I am disappointed not to be there."
Nani on PFA omission Quotes of the week

The Portuguese winger 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 to keep United on course for the title.

United team-mate John O'Shea has admitted his shock at Nani's omission for the top award and the 24-year-old concedes he is upset at not being in the running for the player 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."
