Manchester United star Rafael won't do a Ryan Giggs if he scores this weekend

Rafael has been discussing this weekend's tie with Yeovil Town in the FA Cup.

Manchester United take on Yeovil Town in the FA Cup this Sunday. Of course it is a game they will be expected to win, but United have already been felled by MK Dons this season in the League Cup, so the fixture at Huish Park will still give some of the United players the wobbles.

For one player it is clearly a game he is looking forward to playing.

Rafael has been speaking to the club's official website about the game and his previous memories of the competition.

The Brazilian full-back has made it clear that he wants to add the FA Cup to his long list of silverware at Manchester United recently.

But he also had some interesting things to say regarding his current assistant manager, Ryan Giggs.

Giggs scored a very memorable FA Cup goal in recent times. His strike against Arsenal in the FA Cup semi-final replay of 1999, along with its iconic celebration, is now part of United folklore. Rafael has spoken about the goal to United Uncovered, where he revealed he will not be whipping his top off should he score in Sunday's tie:

"Yes, exactly, because they (the English players) talk to me about it. They talk about the goal Giggsy scored against Arsenal when he took his shirt off. I’ve watched it as well so you can see how special that was. I want to be involved, I want to have more moments with the team like this. If I can be on the pitch when someone scores [a goal like that], it will be amazing.

"(Laughs) Maybe (I'll take my shirt off if I score), but I don’t think the manager would be happy because I would get a yellow card!"
