When the Da Silvas first joined Manchester United, the boss used Fabio’s wedding ring to tell him apart from identical brother Rafael. Since our right-back got married in the summer, Sir Alex Ferguson now struggles to tell them apart.
“When we came to the club, Fabio had just got married and wore a ring so our boss just had to look at the left hand to tell us apart. It was quite funny,” said Rafael. “But now we are both married and wear rings. This has made his life more difficult and occasionally he still gets it wrong. We laugh, but he takes it well.”
