Raphinha insists he didn’t say that Barcelona are better than Real Madrid during his interview after the victory over Inter Miami.
Controversy aside, Raphinha has never faced Real Madrid in his professional career.
This Saturday he will have a good opportunity to introduce himself to Barcelona’s eternal rivals, after he’s already made a good impression against Inter Miami.
After Barcelona’s game against Inter Miami, the Brazilian football player supposedly made a statement in a news conference.
Raphinha’s post-friendly presser vs Inter Miami for Barcelona has gone viral, and the new player already seems to be stirring things up in front of the preseason Clasico.
The Brazilian star has maintained, however, that he did not say, before to their match on Saturday morning in the wee hours of the morning in Las Vegas, that the Catalans were “better than Real Madrid,” but rather that he was highly eager for the game.
The football player from Brazil released a video in which he says: “We always want to defeat Real Madrid in a El Clasico and score. I’m incredibly excited to play these games since they are the finest, in my opinion “.
His first Portuguese translation of his remarks rapidly went viral on social media, with many people taken aback by the claimed claim that Barcelona was a superior team to the Spanish and European winners.
However, the player and the team were keen to point out that the comment from the footballer had been misreported.
As stated, Raphinha has never face Real Madrid in his professional career and he will have the opportunity to play against the Champions League winners this week.
The Brazilian winger will be looking forward to the game and he only want to prove himself on Saturday, after he scored and registered two assists on his debut.
