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!
