'If It's Football, It's Vital'

United Left-Back Signs Long-Term Deal

United signed two Brazilian full-backs in the summer of 2008. While Rafael has become an important part of the squad, his brother Fabio has been less fortunate: injuries prevented him from holding down a spot as Evra's understudy; indeed, he barely had a chance to show his talent.

Yet Sir Alex Ferguson appears to have faith in his talent: the Brazilian left-back has signed a new long-term deal.

"Playing for Manchester United is every young player`s dream,' Fabio said.

'I`m very happy and proud to commit my future to the club. In the time I`ve been here, I`ve learned a lot from the world-class players that I train with. I hope that as time goes on, I can contribute more and more to the success of this great club."

Sir Alex, of course, had reasons for his trust in the player.

"Fabio has settled into the club really well. He`s a natural footballer; a player who has good pace, reads the game well for a boy of his age and is always looking to attack.

'He`s had some bad luck with injuries, but he`ll make a fine Manchester United player in the years to come.'


Amen!
