David Moyes wants Manchester United winger Nani to be more consistent after playing a bit-part role this season.

The Portugal international has made 13 Premier League appearances in the current campaign under Sir Alex Ferguson’s successor.

The 27-year-old, who has 72 Portuguese caps, signed a new five-year deal with the English champions back in October.

And Moyes has challenged the winger to be more consistent and fulfil his incredible talent at Old Trafford.

“Nani is a talented player,” Moyes told United’s website.

“We are trying to give him the feeling that he is important. It’s something he needs – to get back to that consistency which gives him the reason to say: ‘I’m the man. I can do that job regularly’.

“He works hard enough at his game. He is happy to do all the leg work and his shooting with both feet is almost as good as anybody I’ve ever seen.

“He’s incredibly talented and there is a chance he can improve. We want to give him the opportunity.

“You have to accept skilful players are going to be a bit indifferent. They are keen on showing you what they have got and, when it doesn’t come off or work, it looks bad. That’s the balance you have got to get right.”
