Brazil has an uncanny habit of producing truly special right-backs, and Rafael da Silva fits that classification. In 2007, he signed for Manchester United on the same day as his twin Fábio, and the brothers have now released a joint-memoir, The Sunshine Kids.
In part one of this engaging Big Interview, Rafa suggests that Ronaldinho represents the spirit of Brazilian football more than Neymar. Ronaldinho had everything: strength and unbelievable ability, but most of all he made people happy.
Rafa also reflects on the London 2012 Olympics, a difficult experience, but one which taught him not be afraid of taking risks.
