Man Utd defender Rafael misses his brother on loan with QPR

Manchester United defender Rafael is missing his twin brother Fabio, who is on-loan at QPR, but feels they are both benefiting from the arrangement.

The young full-backs moved to Old Trafford from Fluminense in January 2008 when they were just 17-years-old.

"It's not strange but it's different," he told the club's official website. "We're close and I was always together with him but it's been good for us, just to become more mature.

"I used to ask him all the time if I needed something but now I need more of my own mind so I've grown more mature. It's bad because I miss him but it's good to learn more.

"He is always calling me back to say something is not good [about my game].

"It's always been like this. He is back in training now and maybe, when he plays again, we'll keep doing this."
