Aldridge: Nani Worst Player In Premier League

Liverpool legend John Aldridge has slammed Manchester United winger Nani, claming the Portuguese star is fast "becoming the most unpopular player in the Premier League ". The former Liverpool striker believes Nani 's behaviour against Tottenham Hotspur at the weekend was "one of the most dreadful acts I have ever seen from a professional footballer", intimating the ex-Sporting Lisbon prodigy is now more unpopular than Chelsea forward Didier Drogba and Manchester United legend Cristiano Ronaldo. Aldridge's attack on the Old Trafford star stems from Manchester United 's second goal against Spurs on Saturday, during which the Portuguese international handled the ball in the build up to the goal which Harry Redknapp described as " farcical". The Anfield hero told the Liverpool Echo: "The biggest talking point of the weekend was the preposterous goal Nani scored for Manchester United. "It was, quite frankly, one of the most dreadful acts I have ever seen from a professional footballer and he is quickly becoming the most unpopular player in the Premier League. "Everything he did was calculated and Tottenham's players were quite right to feel so aggrieved but, in truth, we should not have been too shocked about it. "When Alex Ferguson tried to turn the spotlight on Fernando Torres after Liverpool played at Old Trafford in September, it was only to take the heat off Nani for the way he had been flinging himself around the pitch. "He is more devious than Cristiano Ronaldo and Didier Drogba, a real unpleasant player. "But, given he has made a fool of referee Mark Clattenburg, I think Nani might find he does not get so many awards the next time he falls over. "
