Liverpool fans were loving it yesterday as they learnt that Leeds could be without star winger, Raphinha, for the clash at Elland Road this weekend.
The Brazilian winger has been a revelation since arriving in the summer and has become a key cog in the Leeds machine under Marcelo Bielsa.
However, his performances have attracted admiring glances and Liverpool are said to be one of the clubs keen on signing him. The Mirror has claimed Leeds are under no pressure to sell, but the Reds are said to be keen on the winger.
But Raphinha could well miss out as Leeds host Liverpool this time out, with Bielsa confirming in his pre-match presser that his summer signing could be missing for the big game.
Liverpool fans, though, took the opportunity on social media to suggest that it was all a ploy by Raphinha to help the Reds into the Champions League positions with a view to the Brazilian moving to Anfield next season.
Here’s a look at what some Liverpool fans had to say as Raphinha looks like missing out this week.
Raphina doesn’t want to play against his future employers! 🤭 remember this tweet!
