Many Leeds United fans have been talking about a claim from Bruno Fernandes that has emerged on social media.
Fernandes was recently talking to the official Man Utd website, as he discussed his team’s upcoming game against Marcelo Bielsa’s Whites. Fernandes talked about Leeds star Raphinha, saying that he hopes that he can play against him at the weekend and he is fit to play.
But the Portuguese also said that he’ll put his former Sporting teammate down in the game, even though he is one of the players who knows him better than anyone else.
Will Raphinha feature against Man Utd?
These comments from the midfielder were relayed on Twitter by Leeds United News. Many Whites fans made their views clear about Fernandes.
What did Leeds fans make of these comments from Fernandes?
“He thinks he can put this guy down?“
In the interview, Fernandes also stated that if they have the time to see each other, Raphinha will meet each other after the game at the weekend. But in the game, they won’t be friends at all.
Raphinha had sustained an injury in Leeds’ 2-1 win over Manchester City two weeks ago and he hadn’t featured for the side against Liverpool either.
“You won’t even get near him pal.”
“Can’t even catch him mate.”
A lot of these Leeds fans are mocking Fernandes and they don’t seem to have a liking for the Man Utd man.
Having said that, Bielsa has stated that Raphinha’s progress is being monitored on a day-to-day basis, which only raised question marks about his fitness against Man Utd.
Considering that the former Rennes and Sporting man has been the club’s highest rated player in the campaign, his absence might be a blow for them against their arch rivals.
