Fabio signs contract extension

BY foxsports • April 1, 2010

Manchester United defender Fabio Da Silva has signed a contract extension that will keep him at Old Trafford until 2014.

The Brazilian teenager has made 13 appearances for the Old Trafford outfit this season and is viewed as a major talent for the future.

"Fabio is a natural footballer who will make a fine Manchester United player in the years to come," said Sir Alex Ferguson.

"He has had some bad luck with injuries but he will make a fine Manchester United player."

Brother Rafael signed a two-year contract extension last season, although it should not be long before he gets a more longer-term one as well.

Certainly the pair are viewed as likely United full-backs of the future given their attacking instincts, with not even a sending off against Wolves in the Carling Cup earlier this season dampening Fabio's enthusiasm for life at Old Trafford.

"Playing for Manchester United is every young player's dream," said the Brazilian.

"I am very happy and proud to commit my future to the club.

"In the time I have been here, I have learned a lot from the world-class players that I train with and I hope that as time goes on, I can contribute more and more to the success of this great club."
