Patrice Evra has backed Rafael da Silva to go on to be one the greatest right-backs of all time at Manchester United, following his costly red card in the European Cup quarter final against Bayern Munich.

“It is a good experience for Rafael and he will definitely be a better player because of what happened,” said Evra. “When he gets some experience he will be different class. I know Rafael’s mentality. I am sure about him. He has a lot of hunger. This was just part of the development process. He will go on to become one of the best right-backs Manchester United have ever had.”
