Lots of Leeds United fans have taken to Twitter to hail Rodrigo’s display during the victory Norwich City in the Premier League.
Marcelo Bielsa’s side, who have endured a difficult start to the campaign with just a solitary victory in the Premier League this season after nine games coming into the game, beat Norwich City 2-1 at Carrow Road on Sunday afternoon to claim an invaluable second victory of their campaign.
The victory sees the Yorkshire outfit overtake Sean Dyche’s Burnley to rise to 17th in the table.
One player who, according to fans at home, was excellent throughout against the Canaries was Spanish forward Rodrigo. The 30 year old, who was a constant threat to Daniel Farke’s side throughout, scored what proved to be the winner for Bielsa’s side with a long range effort in the 60th minute, proving too strong for home keeper Tim Krul.
And that has led to a number of Whites fans taking to Twitter to discuss his performance.
What did Leeds fans say about Rodrigo’s performance vs Norwich?
“More like it….tracking back and trying to win the ball back …. Go on Rodrigo”
“After the most dour half of football #LUFC have played in a long time, we finally have some magic to spark this game into life. Raphinha & Rodrigo with some goals we desperately needed!”
“Love Rodrigo’s passion. He’s Leeds and he knows he is”
“I get all negativity.. but.. Leeds are winning without playing well.. counts for something and those slagging Rodrigo off.. he has 2 in 2 prem games.. what more you want”
“Massive 3 points! Rodrigo and Raph absolutely immense! We push on now”
“Some player him, can’t believe people doubted him”
“Best game he’s played never stopped running. Meslier had a shakey game in parts”
Leeds will be hoping to maintain their winning momentum when they take on Leicester City at Elland Road next Sunday afternoon in the Premier League.
