Leeds United star Raphinha discusses his future
Leeds United star Raphinha believes that he can achieve all of his aims at Elland Road and not have to move anywhere else.
Speaking to BBC West Yorkshire Sport, the 24-year-old revealed how happy he was with the Whites and why he thinks he can achieve his goals.
The Brazilian international has been heavily linked with a move away from Leeds, with Liverpool said to be preparing a January offer [Mirror].
However, it doesn’t seem as Raphinha wants to talk about any of that. When asked whether he could achieve his aims at Elland Road, he said: “Without a doubt.
“When you bring together players with a real, strong, winning desire together with the manager, the coaching staff, fans who love the club, you create a wonderful atmosphere in the stadium and at the training ground.
“Marcelo Bielsa demands a lot of us. We know that. We’re used to it. We listen to him. He helps us develop and evolve as players, as professionals.
“We listen to him, and we play his style of football. That’s the football that has put us, that has given us attention in the Premier League, made us stand out in the Premier League and made Leeds a Premier League team.”
A strong message from Raphinha.
Now, though the winger doesn’t officially confirm that he is going to stay, you would have to say this is a strong indication that he is happy at Elland Road.
He praises Marcelo Bielsa, the fans, and the squad. So. it doesn’t seem as if there is even one thing that Raphinha is unhappy with at the moment.
Now, things could change if a big bid comes in for him, but that could happen at any club to any player.
Therefore, the important thing right now is that Raphinha is happy and focused on doing his best for Leeds, which is all the fans can ask of him right now.
Obviously, the Whites are down at the bottom of the table, fighting a relegation battle as it stands, but Raphinha still believes he can achieve his aims with the Whites, which is excellent.
Overall, this was a very positive interview with the winger, and any Leeds fan should check it out.
