Man Utd's Evans: Possebon not your typical Brazilian

Jonny Evans admits Manchester United teammate Rodrigo Possebon isn't your typical Brazilian.

He explained to manutd.com: "The first time I saw Rodrigo was when he came on trial, probably a year or two ago. Everyone was impressed with what they saw of him. He's got a great touch and technique, and he's so strong on the ball - he very, very rarely gives the ball away and he's quite good in that holding midfield role.

"He's the opposite of the typical Brazilian midfielder; there's not a lot of flair in what he does, he's more defensive minded and is great at keeping things simple and keeping hold of the ball."
