Rafael scores after scoring an absolute howitzer against QPR

Brazilian right back Rafael has spoken on life at Old Trafford under David Moyes, claiming the new manager is slowly putting his own spin on the club.

Rafael who missed the start of the season through injury is steadily getting used to life under a new manager, have spent 5 years under Sir Alex Ferguson and believes that whilst the transition isn’t easy the team must get used to the transition.

Speaking to Omnisport, Rafael said of the regime change:

“It’s never easy.

“Obviously it’s completely different because we had Alex Ferguson for 27 years but I think we all must get used to it.

“David Moyes has his own rules but, of course, he is not going to change everything, especially because what was done before was proven to work well.

“Now he is introducing his touch but he is also keeping the basics.”

The young full back also cleared up any confusion about his future after being linked with a move back to Brazil last month.

Corinthians stated they were confident of signing Rafael and whilst his agent denied any interest from his client, Rafael himself set the record straight:

“I am not thinking about leaving Manchester United, especially since I did well last season.

“There is no reason to leave now, I am playing here, I am a starter and I don’t intend to return to Brazil.”

    There’s no point in Rafael leaving Utd, he’s a starter at the BIG club.

    Hope moyes play both brother in the same match. Rafael(right) and fabio(left).

    For me the biggest regret was that progba leave united i always progba that gave him chance but am glad that moyes isn’t doing the same mistake and gave januzaj chance and look everyone want januzaj now. And willing also bring back another talent jesse lingard and nick powell to united because we will need them in midfield because fellaini is injured and anderson doesn’t perform well and always fighting for fitness.

    Just see the 4-2-1-3.

    Kagawa will get his real position to shine in central creative attacking midfielder. And the two pair carrick,cleversly behind him as defensive midfielder. Then kagawa will be free to attack and create more goal opportunity and help the three upfront rooney(right),rvp(centre) januzaj(left).

    Januzaj,rooney both can exchange their position. And if till 80 minutes rvp doesn’t score then gave chance to chicharito also. Sir alex always used him in 80 minutes and that enough for him to score. Wat said united fan if you don’t believed me then watch past season video all goals that chicharito has score most of them come in 80-85-88 like that.

      They do play a 4-2-3-1 now, last time with nani-rooney-adnan behind the striker. We play with inside-wingers in adnan and nani, and attacking FB’s, removing the need for the classic winger. Great when it’s working, this player’s should be perfect for this, change positions fast, two-footed, scores goals.

      And Kagawa will be good, he is like those 3. Zaha also have all the attributes to come good. We need some quality back-up.

    If there’s something big man utd is missing,it’s the services of cr7,now that we can nolonger afford 2 bring him back.we should develop that young wonder talking about Adnan Januzaz.he’s our new no.7.he deserves that shirt.
