Former M.U. Midfielder Ince to take over at MK Dons

Ince was a massive success in his first managerial job as he impressively saved Macclesfield from relegation from the league having taken over them when they were rooted to the foot of the table.

The performance has given him the opportunity to take over MK Dons, who narrowly missed out on promotion to League One, but that will now be the target for Ince as he continues to build what is tipped as being a long and successful management career.

"This has been a tremendously difficult decision for me," Ince told the club's official website.

"My heart has said stay with Macclesfield Town, but my head has been telling me to go to MK Dons.

"It feels like the decision Thierry Henry has had to make regarding going to Barcelona.

"They have significant resources for me to work with, and as I am ambitious to make it to the very top, I think I have to go for it."

Nani Relishing Portuguese Link-Up At United

Manchester United's new Portuguese signing Nani has spoken of his excitement at joining the Premiership champions, and is looking forward to winning a place in the United first team alongside fellow Portuguese-speakers Anderson and Cristiano Ronaldo.

United signed Nani from Sporting Clube de Portugal and Brazilian playmaker Anderson from Porto in a £30 million double swoop.

And Nani has Uefa's official website that he can't wait to link up with fellow Portuguese international Ronaldo, as well as Anderson.

"At least I'll have them to speak Portuguese with and they will be important especially in the initial period of adapting to a different country," he said.

"As for the three of us playing together, it would be great to play alongside them but that's up to the coaches to decide.

"They are two of the best players I know so it's a privilege to have them as club-mates.

Nani his own man

Manchester United's new Portuguese winger Nani does not see himself as another Cristiano Ronaldo, and intends to make his own mark at Old Trafford by being himself, he said on Saturday.

The 20-year-old rounded of a memorable week in which he secured a 25 million euros (17 million pounds) switch to the English champions by scoring in Portugal's 2-1 Euro 2008 win over Belgium and picking up the man of the match award.

But Nani told reporters after the Group A qualifier he was not preparing to follow in the footsteps of fellow Portuguese attacker Ronaldo, instead he intends to leave his own mark at Old Trafford.

"I am not Ronaldo, I am prepared just to be Nani," he said.

"It is a terrific club, a big club and I am very happy to be joining them."

United have agreed to sign the left winger -- whose full name is Luis Carlos Almeida da Cunha -- from Sporting, and Porto's 19 year-old Brazilian playmaker Anderson in a double swoop.
