Manchester United’s twin wing back Rafael Da Silva and Fabio Da Silva are delighted to be reunited once again at the Theatre of Dreams after a season apart and are looking forward to the new season under the management of David Moyes.
While Rafael was Sir Alex Ferguson’s preferred choice for right back in his last season in charge at the club, Fabio was sent out on loan to Premier League side Queens Park Rangers where he enjoyed a spell in the first team, gaining valuable experience and playing time at the top level. The pair returned for training at the club’s AON Training Complex and went on tour for the club in Asia and Australia where both the Brazilians played their part.
Joe Jordan, the assistant manager to Harry Redknapp at Queens Park Rangers had mentioned earlier last month that the experience Fabio Da Silva gained at the club as they got relegated at the end of last season will serve him well for years to come and the Brazilian showed glimpses of the promise during the club’s pre-season tour as a stand in for regular left back Patrice Evra.
Speaking to the club’s website, Rafael, who excelled as the first choice right back at the club last season, stated that the club’s pre-season tour is all about gaining fitness and momentum and the players worked very hard during the tour before returning to England for further training.
Fabio Da Silva echoed the comments made by his brother adding that it was great to be back playing with him before going on to state that the last season has seen both of them mature a lot as players and both of them have gained valuable experience playing in the first team and learning the trade of nailing down a spot.
