10 footballers set to 'boss' 2009

Posted by , 15 January 2009

Rafael Pereira da Silva

Born: July 9, 1990
Club: Manchester United
Country: Brazil

Rafael is surely going to kick Gary Neville's career into touch either this or next season, which makes him a hero already. The right-sided half of a pair of Brazilian twins who United snapped up from Fluminense back in 2005, he’s caught the eye with pace, outrageous stepovers and ambitious pops at goal. His left-footed volley against Arsenal at the Emirates in November last year was not the work of a defender, but Ronaldo’s probably got that place on the right wing sewn up for now.
