Wes Brown has sung the praises of Rafael and Fabio da Silva, who he reckons will one day both be United’s first choice full-backs. You could argue Rafael already is but Fabio will have to weight for Evra to hang up his boots first.

“They are great lads who train so hard,” said Wes. “They just have this great desire to win. You can see whenever they play they are totally focused on doing their best for the team – and see how much they love driving forward as well as defending. As long as they keep progressing, I don’t see any reason why they can’t become our first-choice full-backs in future.”
