Fabio was unable to play because of the terms in the loan agreement he has with the club and is set to return to United at the end of this season.
“I was pleased to see my brother score a goal like that,” he told GloboEsporte. “Naturally I wanted to celebrate. But I was sat next to the QPR president! I told him afterwards: ‘You never score goals like that! You had to do it against my new team!’ But I was happy for him.”
