Rafael tells Cardiff boss Solskjaer: look after Fabio
Manchester United defender Rafael has urged Cardiff City to take good care of his twin brother Fabio as the left back makes the move to Wales under former Red Devil Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The two teams played at Old Trafford last night and United eased to a 2-0 win courtesy of strikes from Robin van Persie and Ashley Young, as well as a starring debut from £37million Spaniard Juan Mata.
It was not the ideal homecoming for Champions League legend Solskjaer but he had time for some jovial words on the impending arrival of Fabio: "Rafael came up to me after the game and asked that I take care of his older brother , Fabio. Apparently Rafael was born a few minutes later", the Cardiff manager told goal.com.
Rafael will be hoping for a strong few final months of the season to force his way into Luiz Felipe Scolari's final Brazil squad for the World Cup, whereas Fabio's immediate international future will probably be on hold as he attempts to re-establish himself as a first-team player at Cardiff.
