Brazilian defender Fabio da Silva won two trophies during his time as a Manchester United player. Fabio was in the Manchester United squad that won the Community Shield in 2010. He was given a start as Manchester United beat Chelsea 3-1 to win the Community Shield.


Fabio da Silva was on the pitch for 72 minutes of that Community Shield clash with the Blues before Chris Smalling took his place. Antonio Valencia, Javier Hernandez and DmitarBerbatov were on target for the Red Devils, while Salomon Kalou scored the lone goal for Chelsea.

Brazilian international Fabio is a fullback who can function well either on the left side or the right side and he was part of the Premier League title-winning squad at Old Trafford during the 2010/11 season. He scored once in 22 league appearances during his Manchester United spell spanning six years. Fabio da Silva was a Manchester United from 2008 to 2014. While he was still a Manchester United player, the defender was sent to London team Queens Park Rangers (QPR) on loan for the 2011/12 season. At QPR, Fabio da Silva made 21 appearances in the Premier League.

Fabio da Silva was signed by Manchester United from Brazilian club Fluminense alongside twin brother, Rafael da Silva in 2008. The Red Devils reached an agreement to secure the transfer of the two brothers in February 2007. Manchester United were unable to register both players until they turned 18 on July 9, 2008.

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson handed Fabio his debut for the club in the FA Cup clash with North London side Tottenham Hotspur. The Brazilian fullback played his first competitive game for Manchester United in the 2-1 win over Spurs in what was a fourth round clash in the FA Cup. He suffered a calf injury in the second half and had to be replaced by fellow debutant Richard Eckersley.
