Raphinha is currently away on international duty with Brazil as the Seleção prepare to face arch-rivals Argentina this evening. The Leeds forward has been in excellent form this season, scoring five goals in ten league games for the Whites. For his country, the 24-year-old already has two goals and two assists to his name, announcing himself in some style last month. Brazilian talisman has revealed his hopes at both club and international level, including an ambitious claim about Leeds United.
Raphinha said: “From my first days at the club, I already saw how special Bielsa was. He is a guy who works a lot, who knows a lot about soccer. He is the typical professional who dedicates 100% of his time to the institution he represents and we are very lucky that he is our coach. He knows how to get the most out of each one of us. This makes us raise our level.”
