'Well done Victor', 'I'm excited': Some Leeds fans buzzing over what club tweeted on Friday
Leeds United have shared a message from Brazil manager Tite thanking Marcelo Bielsa and the Whites coaches for their superb work with Raphinha.
The 24-year-old joined the Whites in October 2020 for a reported £17million, and has been sensational at Elland Road.
Raphinha has made 38 appearances for Leeds, clocking up nine goals and nine assists, with three goals from seven games this season.
The former Rennes ace has also made his breakthrough with Brazil, and in some style too.
Raphinha earned his first three Selecao caps during the October international break.
Tite brought him on against Venezuela for his debut, where he registered two assists en route to a 3-1 win.
Raphinha then played 29 minutes in the goalless draw with Colombia, before earning his first start in the famous yellow shirt against Uruguay.
Brazil ran out 4-1 winners, and the Leeds ace repaid his international manager’s faith with a brace.
On Friday, Leeds shared the following message from Tite:
And Leeds fans were delighted, praising Bielsa, Tite, Raphinha and Victor Orta on Twitter:
Honestly rather him stay at Leeds where he plays week in week out and is the focal point of the team then be rotation at Liverpool. Hope he stays for Leeds sake and his own— NJR (@Neymarmenino11) October 15, 2021
This shows how much respect Bielsa got from Latin American football. All of the sudden, Leeds earns more Brazillian followers as well.— Le doc (@PChatiketu) October 15, 2021
Well done Victor!
I just hope he plays some of his best football at Elland Road before we have to let him go. He’s got the chance to be an #lufc legend— Ghost Rhubarb (@GhostRhubarb) October 15, 2021
