Ferguson hopes Nani gives him welcome selection headache


MANCHESTER, United Kingdom (AFP) - Alex Ferguson admitted Nani could give him more selection headaches if he continues to put in displays of the kind that helped Manchester United to a 2-1 victory against Reading and a place in the FA Cup quarter-finals.

The Portuguese winger came off the bench in the first-half to replace the injured Phil Jones and scored after the break before setting up Javier Hernandez for United's second that proved crucial as Jobi McAnuff pulled one back for Reading.

"Nani's got great talent and I had a feeling he would win the game for us," said Ferguson.

"You could see he was right on form and he had two great strikes straight away and he was a threat to them the whole night.
