For Rafael, his boss Fergie thinks he has the next Gary Neville on his hands.

Da Silva said: “To speak about a comparison with Gary Neville is too much. He is one of my idols and it’s not easy to become as good as him. I came to improve and that is still happening.

“I am very grateful to the manager for my chance but I am keeping a clear head and do not consider myself to be a star.”
