Nani Can`t Wait for Chelsea

Nani Can`t Wait for Chelsea

Utd new-boy Nani has told how he cannot wait for the Community match in August, where he hopes to prove to Chelsea wrong in suggesting that Manchester United paid so much for him.

Now, to make it in the premiership I think a player needs to have three main attributes. A desire to play for his club, the strength to overcome setbacks and most important, a passionate hatred for Chelsea Football Club, and it would seem that Nani already has one of them!

Speaking to the Daily Mail, Nani spoke of how he felt Chelsea`s accusation that Man Utd paid over the odds for the talented winger were wrong, and he expressed his desire to show the London-based team first hand in the upcoming Community Shield match, which takes place on 5th August.

'I am already thinking about that game, that is where I will make my mark. I want to show Chelsea that buying me has been a great move by Manchester United.'

Now, those who know me will no that I am by far Chelsea`s greatest fan, and I believe their latest jibe is a bit hypocritical coming from the team which spent £150 million on players in Jose Mourinho`s first season. In the previous couple of seasons Chelsea have been at the forefront of the buying, spending bucket loads on absolute quality players like Shevchenko, Boulahrouz and Wright-Phillips (what`s that smell?), whilst Man Utd have spent less excessively, however this season the tables have turned and Manchester United have set the benchmark spending a combined total of £50 million on three players, whilst Chelsea have spent nothing, bringing in benchwarmers Sidwell, Pizarro and Ben Haim. But have we come to expect anything else from the former (yes, FORMER) premiership champions.

Any excuse to have a go at Chelsea, and I`m glad to see that Nani agrees with me, but do you?

O not the community shield its such a big trophey

Chelsea didn't spend £150m in Mourinho's first season. de Visser doesn't work for Chelsea. And Nani took the bait like a right soft *****. Now people know it's so easy he'll get targetted all season.

Poor signings eh? Let see Chelsea lock down Malouda and then we can see who locked down the best winger this transfer season.

First of all, allow me to express my disgust at various members at CFC and the way they've reacted to the signing of Nani. Mind games is one thing, I accept it as part of the modern game. But to actively try to destroy a players confidence before he's even played a game for a team? Regardless of how you look at it that's what Chelsea have been trying to do. It's uncalled for, it's unnessary, and it's a dirty trick. Of course there's two ways a player can react to such comments, he can either believe them and give into the pressure, or he can prove his detractors wrong. So far Nani has said the right words and has got the right mindset, but when August 5th comes along he has to follow all that with a performance and a half. Why? Because there's nothing better than to put your detractors in their place, and he'll only silence them if he plays like it means the world to him.

That will be the bench for him then after he has been kept in our pockets for the game.

150 million in one season, god damn thats alot of cash, could you break it down on the players at some point i imagine that would be a very good read
