Nani is delighted with his first week as a Venezia player.
The former Manchester United star joined Venezia after coming off contract with Orlando City.
Venezia are two points clear of the relegation zone after a 1-1 draw with Empoli, including Nani’s assist straight off the bench.
“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,” said Nani, 35, at his presentation.
“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, and that is, by working with dedication, everything becomes possible.”
