In 2015, it was Van Gaal was appointed by Manchester United, and shortly afterwards got Rafael to hear that there are for him no future was at Old Trafford. “When it was known that Van Gaal would be, were four or five people – including some players – knowing that he is not of Brazilians loved. In addition they pointed out to me on what is going on with Rivaldo happened at FC Barcelona. Yet, I believed not,” says Rafael in conversation with ESPN.

“But in his first season called” me at his office. ‘You can leave’, I was told. For more than a minute lasted that conversation. That was it. I was sad that I had to leave, because I loved Manchester United.”
