Queens Park Rangers assistant manager and former Manchester United striker Joe Jordan believes the loan spell that United player Fabio da Silva had at the club last season will prove to be a great learning curve for the player and he will have matured a lot and is ready to make the push to break into the first team under new manager David Moyes.

The Brazilian international full back spent last season on loan at Loftus Road, playing 23 matches for the R’s as Harry Redknapp and his team suffered relegation to the Championship and according to Jordan, this stint will prove to be a great experience for the Brazilian, who has already seen his twin brother Rafael da Silva nail down a first team spot at right back, both under Sir Alex Ferguson and now David Moyes.

Jordan stated that he believes all of them learned a lot from last season’s campaign, as it was a very difficult season for the entire team. Whether it was someone who was near the end of his career or someone like Fabio da Silva who is still finding his feet at top level football, all of them went through a learning curve.

Speaking to Manchester United’s official website, the former Scotland international striker also mentioned that he thinks Fabio is better for having learned a lot last year and hopefully, he will be able to use that experience in the future in his game.

Jordan mentioned football is not much different from life and a lot of the aspects of life are seen in football and those memories must be stored inside because they provide valuable experience, especially for someone who is young like Fabio da Silva. He mentioned that he will know not every campaign will be a success and it will help him deal with disappointment better.
