Man Utd's Da Silva twins shocked by Ferguson retirement

Manchester United's Da Silva twins admit Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement was a shock.

Both, however, are looking forward to a new era under David Moyes.

"Sir Alex Ferguson and his staff made me the player I am," Rafael told the Mail on Sunday. "We knew that he would retire one day but it was still a shock when he told us on that Wednesday morning, 'I'm finishing'."

Fabio adds: "For every kid to the top player, he's been everything at that club. But David Moyes has a great reputation, 11 years at one team like he's done with Everton is also remarkable these days."
