Many Leeds United fans have been talking about a claim from Bruno 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 , 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.

Starting with an easy one who is Leeds United's top Premier League goalscorer this season?

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 either.

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.
