Watch former Man United player steal the show with a stunning 97th minute free-kick winner


On the day that Manchester united were bested 2-1 by Swansea, two of the former players had a great game in Turkey.

Having signed from Old Trafford this summer, both Robin van Persie and Nani have taken no time finding their feet in the Turkish top flight with Fenerbahce.

Angel Di Maria was not the only former United man to have a good weekend, it seems.

Both players were pivotal during their 2-1 league win against Antalyaspor.

Nani opened the scoring just before the interval, meeting a perfectly-weighted Van Persie cross with a powerful header into the back of the net.

The opposition equalised and it took Fenerbahce until the 97th minute to break the deadlock through that man again.

The Portuguese international showed nerves of steel to curl home a 25-yard free kick right at the death.

Cometh the hour, cometh the Nani.
