PICTURE: Rafael declares himself fit for Manchester United against QPR

Manchester United’s squad has been threadbare due to a serious string of injuries recently – and particularly in the defensive areas. So when Rafael Da Silva took to Twitter this afternoon to suggest that he is back and ready for action, it certainly gave Manchester United and their fans a huge boost.

When you factor in that phil Jones came off for England with what looked like a hamstring injury, Rafael’s return becomes even more crucial. We need as many defenders as possible fit and ready to go, and on his day Rafael is the best right wing-back in our squad.


Is Rafael a better right-wingback than Antonio Valencia? Leave your thoughts in the comment box below.
