- Nani has explained that Cristiano Ronaldo was of great help to him at Manchester United

- Ronaldo and Nani won the Premier League titles and Champions League together at Old Trafford
Former Manchester United star Nani has revealed how his fellow countryman Cristiano Ronaldo accommodated him in 2007 when he moved from Sporting Lisbon to Old Trafford.
Nani's superb performances years back when he was playing in the Portuguese League made ways for him to be signed by Manchester United under Sir Alex Ferguson.
When he arrived in England, Nani actually wanted to move into an hotel before his agent offered him to move to Ronaldo's house.
During that time, Ronaldo was living alone in his mansion and the forward was already scoring great goals for Manchester United.
While speaking with Players Tribune, Nani described Ronaldo as a great footballer who does not like losing any game for club and country.
Nani added that Brazilian star Anderson also joined him in Ronaldo's house and the three of them had superb fun.
“What a time it was. We were all young lads who spoke the same language, and we had so much fun.
“Cristiano had a swimming pool, a Ping-Pong table, a tennis court and every day we would compete at something,'' Nani explained.
Meanwhile, Ronaldo currently plays for Italian side Juventus, while Nani is playing for MLS side Orlando City.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Nani revealed a touching explanation of how his story went from grass to grace as he revealed how he used to beg for food on the streets in Lisbon.
Nani is one of the successful footballers in the world considering his days at Manchester United where he won the Premier League titles and also the Champions League.
But the 33-year-old faced serious difficulties in Lisbon while growing up because of poverty as his parents lived in a room.
With nine children, Nani's parents had no choice than to stay in a one bed room house in Lisbon since they had no money to hire a more comfortable apartment.
