Loan Watch: Nani fails to shine and faces uncertain future


Manchester United’s loan stars were in action again for their respective clubs. On Monday evening, Nani was the only player to feature for his loan club, with Saidy Janko to part of the squad who lost to AFC Bournemouth in the penultimate match of the Championship season. Here is how I feel the players fared this weekend:

Saidy Janko – Bolton Wanderers

Saidy Janko was not involved in the 3-0 defeat to AFC Bournemouth in the Sky Bet Championship on Monday evening.

Next Match: Birmingham City – Sky Bet Championship – Saturday 2nd May 2015; KO 12:15

Nani – Sporting Lisbon

Nani played 84 minutes in the 4-2 victory over Moreirense in the Primeira Liga on Monday evening. The Manchester United loanee was replaced with six minutes remaining. Nani was not in the form he has been in this season, scoring ten goals in all competitions for his loan club. Nani did force a save from the Moreirense goalkeeper and placed a decent free kick into the box in the second half, but did not score or assist any goals during this victory. Sporting are still in third place, nine points from the summit with six matches still to place this season. Six points separate Sporting and second placed Porto, so there is still something to play for this season.

Next Match: Nacional – Primeira Liga – Saturday 2nd May 2015; KO: 20:15
