TV cameras closed in on Rafael‚Äôs footwear during Manchester United‚Äôs win at Fulham earlier this month and focused on the name ‚ÄúFabio‚ÄĚ stitched into the leather.
‚ÄúI have been doing that for a while,‚ÄĚ said Rafael. ‚ÄúIt‚Äôs because they [Nike] send the boots to the training ground at Carrington. Our kit man said, ‚ÄėAh, your brother‚Äôs boots are here‚Äô. So I said, ‚ÄėI will play with them‚Äô. I started using them and had some good games so I said, ‚Äėlet‚Äôs stick with them‚Äô.‚ÄĚ
