Rafael de Silva - Man Utd

Despite a trophyless 2011 - 2012 season for Man Utd, 22-year-old has arguably been the Brazilian’s best ever for United.

Rafael has started more games than any of his teammates.

“It’s been a great year for me,” he said. “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. And on the pitch I have been able to play a lot of games. So I’ve had a lot of good moments not just in football but in life this year.

“My target for 2013 is like every player – we want to win trophies,” adds Rafa. “When you’re at this club that has to be your focus, we all want to win. And personally I want to play as many games as I can and be consistent in my performances.
