“We are better than Real Madrid” Barcelona new signing Raphinha claims after a dream debut against Inter Miami.
Raphinha was pleased with his performance on his FC Barcelona debut.

Raphinha feels optimistic about his team’s chances in La Liga this season.
“Pleased beyond measure to have scored my first goal. The game was enjoyable. I made an effort to play well. I’m overjoyed and intend to keep doing it “, he said the press.
This year, he believes they are superior to Real Madrid.
The Brazilian, who was looking to extend his scoring run, had strong words for both his squad and their opponents while discussing their next game.
“In a Derby, one works much harder to score than against anybody else. The victory is what matters most. But in my opinion, we outperform Real Madrid “he continued.
He continued by complimenting his teammates’ abilities and appreciating their efforts, noting that playing with them was simple since they made everything so much easier.
“Barcelona boasts a number of young, bright athletes. They’re working with them quite well. They are always competing for victories.”
Additionally, Raphinha has the Qatar 2022 World Cup in mind.
The former Leeds United player admitted that he longs to represent Brazil in a World Cup and is optimistic that his performance at FC Barcelona will increase his chances of making the final “canarinha” selection in late November.
