Tonight, when Manchester united entertain Braga in the Champions League, United supporters will be hoping that we can continue our impressive start to a campaign that many would like to see end in an appearance in the Wembley final.
One player hoping to play a part in a side that may have a shuffled look about it considering we have an important fixture with Chelsea this weekend, is Rafael
The young Brazilian defender has been in impressive form and there is the suggestion, in the camp, that the old impulsive streak that often hampered his progress has been reigned in.
In fact the new, mature, Rafael has received some glowing praise form the gaffer, praise that appears in the tabloid press this morning as,
"He was our best player on Saturday."
"He`s maturing and learning all the time. He`s blessed with great enthusiasm, skill and speed."
"Maturity brings that together and he`s done that over the last two years."
He was quite impulsive in the past, committing himself, but he`s been fantastic."
And long may that progress continue we say!
