Rafael has already won the Premier League twice during his time at Old Trafford but he is hungry for more glory and is looking forward to the rest of the campaign.

He recognises that each game will become increasingly important over the next few months and is keen to play a major role.

"My target for 2013 is like every player: we want to win trophies," the Brazilian said in the Daily Star.

"When you're at this club that has to be your focus. We all want to win and I want to play as many games as I can and be consistent in my performances.

"When you get into January you know the really important time in the season is not far away and there will be big game after big game.

"Every game is important, but after Christmas they become massive. Hopefully we can do well."

Rafael feels he has taken his game to another level in 2012 and says that becoming a father has made a big difference.

He said: "It's been a great year for me. I feel like I have grown up a lot and that I am maturing. My daughter was born this year, which has helped me a lot, too.

"I was only 18 when I first came here, I was just a boy.

"Some people may think I am still young and still a boy, but now I feel I'm a man."

wonder if he'd feel the same way if he wasn't a white, non-jewish heterosexual male. Because Mackay has basically insulted everyone else!
