Leeds fans react as Raphinha comments on his future

Raphinha’s sparkling form for Leeds United in his first season at the club has seen Liverpool become reportedly interested in signing the Brazilian winger – but Whites fans have responded to their star player’s latest comments, stating he is happy.

Raphinha, 24, joined Leeds on deadline day after helping French club Rennes qualify for the Champions League. His stunning form for the Ligue 1 side was immediately replicated at Leeds – having a hand in 10 goals in his 21 Premier League outings.

Not only has his goals and assists caught the eye. His typically-Brazilian flair, along with his tricks, have seen him become a favourite at Elland Road. Gary Cahill was turned inside out by Raphinha with one of the most-skilful moments of the season.

Nominated for the February Player of the Month award in the Premier League, Raphinha has attracted interest from Liverpool. The Mirror claim Jurgen Klopp’s side might look to land the ex-Sporting Lisbon man – but he has stated he is happy.

“I’m really happy and satisfied to be part of this club. When I found out Leeds were interested in me, the way they accepted and embraced me on arrival, means I’m very happy now. I’m really settled in the club and the city. I thank everyone for their love.”

Some Leeds fans have reacted on Twitter to the news that Raphinha has stated he is happy at Elland Road. Not only that, but he has also settled in well in the City of Leeds, and that he is “satisfied” to be a Leeds player – and it has delighted supporters.
