Subbing the Sub

Subbing the Sub

It was one of those rare occasions yesterday where the substitute gets substituted!

Having come on in the first half, as a replacement for the stricken Phil Jones, Rafael then trudged off, later in the game, to be replaced himself!

The young Brazilian didn`t look too pleased with the decision but afterwards Sir Alex Ferguson explained why the sub was subbed, commenting,

"Rafa wasn`t pleased and I can understand that. But he`d already been booked and I thought he might be in trouble if he made another half-bad challenge."

Simple isn`t it!
