Rafael da Silva says that he and his brother are "coping" since he was loaned to Queens Park Rangers from Manchester United last year.

Manchester United right-back Rafael da Silva has admitted that it has been difficult being away from his brother Fabio, but the pair are "coping".

The two were separated when Fabio was loaned out to Queens Park Rangers from Old Trafford last year.

"Fabio moving to London was the first time we were really separated," the Daily Mail quotes Rafael as saying. "We never spent a year apart. But we're coping."

The pair arrived in England in 2008.
