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."

ave to go for Everton myself. Leon Osman looks like everyone's mate down the pub. Leighton Baines can't take himself too seriously with his dodgy haircut. Steven Piennar looks like he'd cry if you were nasty to him. And Tim Howard looks like he'd give you the most perfect man-hug you could ever imagine.
