Chelsea scout Piet de Visser has had a dig at Manchester United, claiming new signing Nani may not be good enough for the Premiership.

De Visser has been asked by Blues owner Roman Abramovich to identify young talent to bring to Stamford Bridge, but has cast doubt on whether United's big-money signing can cut it in the English league.

Dutchman De Visser admits the 20-year-old midfielder has huge potential, but reckons his crossing lets him down and claims he holds onto the ball for too long.

De Visser, who recommended John Obi Mikel to Chelsea, told The Sun: "This boy is, as far as his skills are concerned, a super talent.

"He had his training with Sporting Lisbon and technically he is so good, he is almost perfect.

"But I also stress that despite all his talent he may not be right for the Premier League.

"His crosses are sometimes OK, sometimes bad.

"He dribbles too much with the ball because he wants to entertain, not because he wants to be effective.

"Cristiano Ronaldo had the same problem when he first played for United."

He's just bitter, "He dribbles because he wants to entertain, not because he wants to be effective. Cristiano Ronaldo had the same problem when he first played for Man United, so there is still hope for the boy under United's training regime." and now Ronaldo is the best player in the premiership by a mile. What a hypocrite

LMAO!!!!!

If he is 'only' as good as Ronaldo was when we signed him then I think we can be pretty happy with that. lol Another ridiculous, hilarious, pointless load of shi*e from those Chelski morons.

"technically he is so good, he is almost perfect."

If that's him having a dig it wasn't a very good attempt. De Visser is just trying to cover his own ass because we got the two youngsters with the greatest potential in world football and he hasn't found anyone this season. Nani is only young and he sounds like Ronnie when he first came, and look what ronnie did this season. It will take him time to adapt but there is no better learning place than Man United. If he turns out to be half as good as Ronnie I think most of us would be happy.

I agree Jazz16, with absollutly everything you said in that post

Fergie and Quieroz will bring out the best in Nani and Andersson as they've done with ronnie and rooney

this team we're building is gonna be around for a long time and hopefully have the same success as the class of 99

Good God!? Chelsea have scouts? Seriously? They actually employ their own scouts? It does seem strange that they always look for the players that we have been tracking. This "scout" is a bit silly. Chelsea wanted Nani and Anderson. Just like they wanted Ronaldo.
I'm just a tad scared that Nani and Anderson may be "scouted" further by Chelsea like Obi Mikel was...
