United's midfielder Luis Nani.

The Reds winger - 24 this week - gives us an insight into his life off the pitch... 

What’s your favourite TV programme?
In England, it’s The X Factor. In Portugal, I like our soaps. They’re not like the English soaps, like Coronation Street and Eastenders. They’re more like comedies.

What do you miss most about home?

My mum and my family.

Can you cook?

Yes, I like Portuguese food. My favourite dish is feijoada (stew of beans with beef and pork). I have a machine in my house that does everything! It’s from Portugal, it’s called a Bimby. If you want to make feijoada, they say put this ingredient in, then half an hour later put this in... and it does it for you. It’s nice.

What was the last book you read?
I've got Giggsy’s book (My Life, My Story) and I’ve been reading that.

Who’s your best friend at United?
I have lots of friends… the ones who speak Portuguese are all close, but I get on with the English-speaking lads too; Fletch, O’Shea and the younger lads especially. Rio is like one of the young lads - he likes to have a laugh.

If United got to the Champions League final and you only had one ticket to give away, who would get it?
[Laughs] Only one?! My mum.
