Man Utd fullback Rafael proud of Ferguson praise

Manchester United fullback Rafael da Silva is delighted with the praise he's earned from manager Sir Alex Ferguson this season.

Ferguson believes he can become the best full-back in Europe.

Rafael told The Sun: "I like it when I hear Sir Alex Ferguson or Rio saying these things about me. It's nice and I hope I can keep going.

"It's important to get the team medals first of all because, if you get them, then the other personal things are going to come as well."
