Was Rafael the most relieved man in Old Trafford yesterday? I think so! 🙂
Rafael’s reaction was superb! The reaction would suggest Rafael felt partly responsible for the goal conceded. It would be fair to say Rafael should have remained on the goal line allowing him to clear Ledley King’s header.
You sense the reaction was a result of pent up frustration and relief. This was Rafael’s first match since the sending off against Bayern – the last thing Rafael wanted in his first game back is an error by himself to further damage United’s season.
What is it with our right backs and passion? Gary Neville has schooled him well. Good man Rafael! 🙂
