Alex Ferguson says he dreams of cheating

Manchester Utd gaffer wants to use Da Silva for evil


Alex Ferguson has heaped praise on his young twins Rafael (left) and Fabio (right) Da Silva, and the possibility of using their identical nature to Manchester Utd’s advantage has not escaped the manager. With a scheme that could be taken straight from a hilarious high concept film, Fergie says he would like to interchange the identical siblings during matches:

“We have two great Brazilian defenders in Fabio and Rafael and it’s impossible to distinguish who is who.

“My dream would be to start one and replace him with the other without anyone noticing. They are extraordinary, they really adore football.”

Of course, it’s unlikely that Sir Alex would ever cheat in this way, but then again, how would we ever know?
