Manchester United defender confirms his return to training

Manchester United have been handed an injury boost ahead of the visit of Stoke City on Tuesday night, with Rafael da Silva taking to Instagram to confirm his return to full training. The right-back has been missing for over a month with a groin injury, and with Antonio Valencia the only player who can cover for the 24-year old, it’ll be great to have him back and available for selection.

Rafael is a fantastic player on his day, and he’s certainly a favourite amongst the Old Trafford crowd. The only problem is that he often picks up silly bookings and makes rash decisions. If he could improve that, as well as staying fit for long periods, he could well be one of the best right-backs in the Premier League – just look at the 2012-13 season, he was outstanding that year.
