Nani started the final on the bench but came on and scored in the penalty shoot-out win against Premier League rivals Chelsea.
The former United star revealed that he had no nerves taking the penalty and that Cristiano Ronaldo missing his spot-kick spurred him onto make amends for his teammate.
The Portuguese international told the official UEFA website: “I was bleeding from the head, because me and Ashley Cole had crashed into each other, but at that moment all the tension went away because I knew I had to score since Ronaldo had missed his. I took it with confidence, but Petr Čech went the right way and nearly saved it. When I saw the ball go in, it was a very good feeling.”
Nani won four Premier League titles, the Champions League and the World Club Cup during his time at Manchester United.
The Portuguese winger enjoyed a brief stint at Sporting Lisbon on loan before joining Fenerbahce on a three-year deal over the summer.
Nani is in great for for the Istanbul giants scoring 10 goals and providing eight assists in all competitions this season.
