Fábio da Silva

Fábio da Silva (Manchester United)

  • Full Name: Fábio Pereira da Silva
  • Date of Birth/Age: July 9 1990/Age 20
  • Place of Birth: Petrópolis, RJ, Brazil
  • Main Position: Left Back
  • Description: His twin brother Rafael may be more famous now, but Fábio da Silva also has the potential to become a star full back in the near future. Signed by Manchester United along with Rafael from Fluminense in February of 2007, Fábio has been steadily progressing, playing well for the reserve side and then earning 5 first-team league appearances during the 2009-2010 season. Injuries stopped him from playing more last year, but the talented youngster can definitely have a breakout year in the upcoming 2010-2010 season. He has the potential to become a very dangerous attacking left back with his great pace and dribbling abilities. On the national team level, Fábio has only represented Brazil on the U-17 level so far, but a lot of appearances for Manchester United would surely put him into contention for a senior squad call-up.
  • Pros: Pace, Dribbling, Crossing
  • Cons: Strength, Marking, Tackling
  • Transfer Interest: Medium, as Manchester United are very unlikely to let him go anywhere, unless its a loan deal, if that.
