Manchester United defender Fabio da Silva has signed for Queens Park Rangers on a season long-loan.
The versatile Brazilian full-back who can play on either flank, struggled for first team appearances last season. He has turned out 53 times for the Red Devils but has never been a first-choice starter.
Sir. Alex Ferguson will be hoping the 21-year-old can go to Loftus Road and push for more appearances and gain invaluable experience for the future.
Former Manchester United legend and current QPR boss Mark Hughes has hailed Fabio’s arrival to London;
“It’s a great opportunity for us to loan a good, young player, who has decent experience of playing for a top club like Manchester United,” he told the club’s website.
“He’s played a lot of senior games for United, so it shows the quality he’s got.
“I know they think very highly of him and we believe he has all the attributes to be a success here next season.
“First and foremost, he’s a good defender. He’s got great enthusiasm as well, and just like his brother, he’s a top professional
Fabio joined Manchester United in August 2008, on the same day as his twin brother Rafael, who ironically has just signed a new four-year contract extension at Old Trafford. Though how Fergie has been able to tell each player apart and work out which one he wants to keep in the squad and which he wants to go out on loan, we don’t know!
