TV cameras closed in on Rafaelâs footwear during Manchester Unitedâs win at Fulham earlier this month and focused on the name âFabioâ stitched into the leather.
âI have been doing that for a while,â said Rafael. âItâs because they [Nike] send the boots to the training ground at Carrington. Our kit man said, âAh, your brotherâs boots are hereâ. So I said, âI will play with themâ. I started using them and had some good games so I said, âletâs stick with themâ.â
