Nani: "I chose Venezia for their ambitious project"

January 18, 2022

On Tuesday, Luís Nani met with the local press and spoke about his decision to come to Venice and his first impressions of the team.

“I chose Venezia for their ambitious project. I am a football man, and as such I prefer to be in a group where you can find the will to do great things, and this club has such a mentality.

What I would like to do is help the young players to grow, try to help their talent blossom, and obviously, in addition to this, to help the team in the offensive phase.

What I found here is a fantastic group, who welcomed me very well. There are many young people, and consequently there is a great energy and desire to achieve, all elements that are the basis of the growth of a team. Since there is a great willingness to work here, and at the same time important qualities, the room for improvement is very high. The way to succeed is to stay united and work hard. In fact, if there is one thing that I have learned in the course of my life, it's that by working with dedication, everything becomes possible.

My experience in the States was spectacular. I spent three wonderful years in the MLS that gave me the right push to continue playing football at a high level.”
