The Da Silva Twins Will Be The Big Things Of 2009

The Da Silva Twins Will Be The Big Things Of 2009

Rafael da Silva is on the right track now: he looks like establishing himself as first choice on the right side of the defense and his performances impressed everyone since signing for United.

His twin brother, Fabio, however, hasn't played a single competitive game for the club yet, because of a shoulder injury. But he's supposed to be even better... we'll see, if we can tell them apart.

'Rafael and Fabio are identical twins. I can hardly tell them apart, except that one is married and wears a ring,' Sir Alex Ferguson told the Daily Mirror.

'It will be interesting to find out if their football ability is identical too. There's every chance it is because Fabio captained the Brazil team at every youth level.'

'Some people might have been a bit surprised I've picked him [Rafael] over Wes Brown and Gary Neville at times, but I feel the boy has something special.


Let's see if his brother's got that, too! I'm looking forward to seeing them more in 2009.

Fabio was much better in the U17s World Cup... Scored a ridiculous number of goals from LB...
