Along wi his brither, Rafael, Fábio haes been praised for his energetic style, an haes been describit as a "excellent footballer" bi Sir Alex Ferguson.[5] Les Kershaw, the umwhile Manchester United academy manager who spottit thaim, describit the pair as being like "two little whippets," praising how "when they got knocked down, they just got straight back up again and got on with it. They were like bouncing balls... very, very quick".[6] The Times haes cried thaim "Brazil's answer to the Neville brothers".[7] Based on his attackin ability an instincts, it wis suggestit on the United wabsteid that Fábio, alang wi Rafael, coud be deployed in the midfield rather than in defence.[5]
