Rafael da Silva wishes all his Instagram followers 'good morning'
Rafael da Silva relaxed with his kids on Monday morning after the Manchester United defender missed his side’s 2-0 win at Queens Park Rangers.
The Brazil international was absent as Marouane Fellaini and James Wilson scored second-half goals to help Louis van Gaal’s side leave Loftus Road with three points.
Rafael suffered a fractured cheekbone in United’s 2-0 victory over Yeovil Town in the FA Cup earlier this month, amounting to the 27th injury of his seven-year Red Devils career.
However, the 24-year-old took his mind off his recent injury setback by spending some quality time with his daughter and son.
Rafael posted on Instagram: “Good morning. #kids #son #daughter”
Rafael took to his social media to reassure United supporters that his operation went fine earlier this month, hinting at a speedy recovery.
“Operation was perfect back training normal with mask on Friday very happy. thanks god for everything,” Rafael wrote.
Meanwhile, Belgium Adnan Januzaj reflected on United’s win against Harry Redknapp’s men, posting a photo of Marouane Fellaini’s goal celebration.
The 19-year-old has found his first-team opportunities limited this season under Van Gaal, starting just four Premier League games.
