Manchester United fans love Rafael da Silva. The right-back was superb during his time at Old Trafford. He always gave absolutely everything for the cause.
Unfortunately, there wasn’t enough space for him on the books at the club, but his time at United will always be remembered fondly. Thankfully, that feeling is mutual. He still has an affection for his former employers, while continuing to defend his (and United’s legacy) brilliantly on social media.
Rafael responded pretty spectacularly to a Manchester City ‘fan’ who decided to slag him off online. When the right-back responded suggesting that he has won as many titles as their club as a whole, the United fan-base absolutely loved it, and rightly so! There is some colourful language from our blue friend, just a heads up…
I mean, at the end of the day, footballers are humans like you and me. Comments will hurt them, why shouldn’t they be allowed to bite back?
It was just brilliant. Rafa will always have a place in our hearts, largely for that stunning goal he scored away at Liverpool, but as I scrolled through my timeline and saw this tweet, I almost spat out my morning brew.
Fair play, Rafa!
