MANCHESTER United manager Alex Ferguson says he has the perfect solution to Rafael da Silva being suspended – a Fabio da Silva shirt.
The 20-year-old Brazilian right-back was sent off for a second yellow card in Sunday’s 0-0 draw at Tottenham Hotspur and is suspended for Saturday’s home game against Birmingham City.
But Ferguson joked he could still field the right-back, by handing him a shirt from his identical twin, left back Fabio.
He said: “Young Fabio could easily play right back, John O’Shea and Wes Brown are back in training… they are available.
“I might play Rafa and they wouldn’t know — I could do that quite easily, so it’s not really a suspension at all!”
