Man Utd fullback Rafael flattered by Neville comparisons

Manchester United fullback Rafael da Silva is flattered by praise coming from manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

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."
