Man Utd fullback Fabio: QPR lacked unity

Manchester United defender Fabio da Silva admits QPR lacked unity last season.

Manchester United defender Fabio da Silva admits QPR lacked unity last season.

Fabio was on loan at QPR, first under Mark Hughes and then Harry Redknapp during a campaign interrupted by a stress fracture in his back.

"It didn’t go the way I wanted," he told the Mail on Sunday. "We had a bad start, lost confidence, never got back on track. Redknapp tried hard but it was too late.

"Of course, there were too many changes at the club. Too many new players. I don’t think the team were together. Everyone wanted to do his best but they played for themselves as individuals, not as a team.

"In the end, the atmosphere was bad — but not from the fans. I have to say they supported us right to the end."

Fabio will start next season, as far as he knows, back at United. "In my mind I want to stay there but I don’t know."
