Fabio: Twin split has worked

Queens Park Rangers full-back Fabio admits it has been difficult to adapt to life away from his twin but thinks it is better for them to be at different clubs.

Fabio: Believes his move to QPR has also helped twin Rafael

The Da Silva brothers joined Manchester United in 2008 but Fabio decided to move on last summer in search of regular football and joined QPR on a season-long loan deal.

Fabio reckons the change has helped both himself and Rafael, as they can now concentrate on their own games.

He explained in The Independent: "Now we have split, it's better. I tell you, when me and him play together we look at each other. When I make a mistake I'm not saying he feels - he doesn't lose confidence but he gets less [diminished] a little bit.

"Now [this season] when he plays and he has a good game and another good game he gets confidence. When I was there sometimes I was not playing or not playing well. Maybe he feels that I am down... because we lived together [in Manchester].

"Sometimes when he plays he is happy. Sometimes when I play I am happy. Now we are getting more mature. He is there. I am here."

Fabio added: "We discuss everything together. He knew I wanted to leave United to play more games. To play consistently. He agrees with me. He thinks it's good for me to leave United to play more football. I enjoy it.

"I know it hasn't been a good season for Queen's Park Rangers but I try to improve and to help."

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
