Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson praises the impact of Nani from the bench in their 2-1 victory over Reading in the FA Cup.

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has lavished praise on Nani following his performance in last night's FA Cup victory over Reading.

Nani made a scoring return to the United side at Old Trafford, coming off the bench to inspire the Red Devils to a 2-1 victory over the Royals and keep their treble chase alive.

Ferguson has admitted that the Portuguese winger will give him a selection headache if he can produce displays of the same quality on a regular basis.

He told The Independent: "Nani is a fantastic talent. He has got great talent, we know about that.

"I had a feeling he would win the game for us. You could see he was right on form when he came on. He had two great strikes immediately and he was a threat to them after that all night.

"It is a good addition. If he keeps that form it makes my job more difficult."

United are back in Premier League action this weekend against Queens Park Rangers at Loftus Road.
