From Man United at 16 with his twin brother to playing with Emiliano Sala: Fabio da Silva talks to ESPN

Fabio da Silva is thriving in Ligue 1 after stints at Man United and around England, but he hopes to one day get a chance to play professionally back home in Brazil.

Fabio da Silva isn't a household name, but he and twin brother Rafael are cult heroes among some sections of Man United fans. He arrived at Old Trafford at just 16 years old with Rafael and won a Premier League title there before fighting through the pain of relegation with QPR, Cardiff City and Middlesbrough.

He played in a Champions League final against Lionel Messi. He was mentored by United's legendary coach, Sir Alex Ferguson, and, at Cardiff, by Man United's current manager, Ole Gunnar...

Pep Guardiola's style speaks to new reality for managers: they must look as good as their tactics

Pep looks more like a Silicon Valley guru than a manager but looking like a genius is all part of the job.

Editor's Note: David Rudin has covered football for the Guardian, Howler Magazine and StatsBomb and written about fashion and design for Kill Screen and Racked. He also kept a running online chronicle of Pep Guardiola's various looks when not writing for the Montreal Gazette.

Pep Guardiola has built a reputation for making complicated things look easy, dating back to his playing days as a slight but influential midfielder. In February, he lifted the Carabao Cup with his Manchester City squad:...

Playing two upfront becoming a viable approach again in the Premier League

The Exploding Heads review the weekend in the Premier League, including Swansea forgetting to turn on VAR and Millwall fan's actually caring.

The Premier League remains Europe's most international, multicultural top-flight league in terms of players and managers, and yet somehow there often seems to be a distinctly old-school feel to the football. For instance, Pep Guardiola has spoken of the importance of coping with winning second balls, while Jurgen Klopp has spoken about the need to deal with the inclement weather.

Tactically, things are somewhat different: We're in the age of false nines and gegenpressing, rather than long balls...

Man City's road to the quadruple is clear, but do they have the energy to complete a historic season?

Manchester City are chasing history. Their trip to Craven Cottage to face Fulham on March 30 marks the first of a potential 15 games in 64 days that could end with Pep Guardiola and his players becoming football immortals.

No English club has ever achieved a clean sweep of every competition they have entered in a season. Manchester United famously won the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League in 1999, while Liverpool pulled off the league, League Cup and European Cup in 1984. They also...

By the numbers: Messi's 51st hat-trick, Salah's long scoreless streak

Lionel Messi celebrates after putting Barcelona ahead 1-0 in their Champions League tie with Lyon.
Lionel Messi scored his 33rd La Liga hat-trick in the course of Barcelona's 4-1 win away to Real Betis.

There's Lionel Messi, and then there's the rest. The weekend's football in Europe seemed to suggest so, although one must put this helpful caveat: Juventus gave Cristiano Ronaldo the weekend off.

Here are the best numbers from the weekend:


Lionel Messi scored his 33rd La Liga hat-trick in the course of Barcelona's 4-1 win away to Real Betis, also his 45th hat-trick for Barcelona across all competitions. He also has six hat-tricks for the Argentina national team, taking his overall tally in competitive...

Liverpool continue their high-wire act, international break comes at right time for Man United

Nick Miller recaps a topsy-turvy weekend, with Premier League and FA Cup quarterfinal action serving up another football feast.

Response of the weekend

For the last few months Liverpool have, in the Premier League at least, been sprinting along a tightrope. Sometimes they've kept a straight and steady course. Sometimes they've wobbled. Sometimes they've almost fallen off only to just about right themselves.

It must be a pretty stressful business watching them. They have lain bare their deficiencies...
