Leeds fans spot Raphinha mugging off Norwich keeper Tim Krul on Instagram

Leeds United fans were left laughing when managing to spot Raphinha mugging off Norwich City keeper Tim Krul on Instagram.

The 24 year old Brazilian has well and truly rubbed salt in the wounds of their opponents after helping his side to a much needed win on Sunday afternoon.

Rodrigo scored the winner as the Whites beat the Canaries 2-1 at Carrow Road for their second Premier League victory of a disappointing season so far.

And it was an awful goalkeeping error from the Dutchman which allowed Rodrigo to be the hero for Marcelo Bielsa’s men.

After the game, Raphinha, who opened the scoring for Leeds, posted a screenshot on Instagram of a Daily Mail article from 2019.

In it, Krul is photographed squaring up to then-Leeds player Kemar Roofe after Norwich win over the Elland Road outfit.

Leeds fans spot Raphinha mugging off Norwich keeper Tim Krul on Instagram, here’s what they had to say below…

@rt1979rt: I’m not sure even Barcelona are Barcelona anymore.

@JonathanBrook84: He’s Leeds and he knows he is. Into em 👊🏻🤣🙌🏻

@AntMit: Makes me feel happy that he’s done this, and said “WE”

@Douglass1John: A statement of intent I think there raphinia and the boys know and when you know you know I am 100% behind the boys MOT

@lufc_paul: We need to do whatever is required to keep him.

@mimikeene__: Rattled so many people

@samlufcc: It makes me so happy he’s gone all the way back to February 2019. What a shithouse

@mattylufc_: I really am a huge fan of this

@Ash_Sugden1994: Love this from Raph! 😍

@Harry_L99: He knows what it means

@ItsLukeEv: give him a new contract immediately please

Raphinha continues to be one of Leeds’ best players this season and he’s at the centre of everything at the moment for the club.

While, he has consistently been the bright spark for Leeds, he at one point in the game crashed into manager Marcelo Bielsa who tumbled down to the ground in the second half.

The Argentine was able to forgive Raphinha – who was chasing down a loose ball near the dugout but couldn’t slow himself down in time – as he watched the player score prior to being taken down.

Norwich boss Daniel Farke: “I am disappointed. In home games against sides around you in the table, you need to win points. We are not playing for warm words, we are playing for points and if you don’t achieve them in games like this it is difficult to achieve our targets and earn the right to stay in the league.

“We have lost against the top three and didn’t have many chances. In all the other games, we have been competitive and received compliments. There was good effort and a good team performance today, but we lacked quality in both boxes. We were the better side in the first half; when we equalised, the atmosphere was buzzing and we had the whole stadium on our side. Then they scored and it changed the mood again. In a tight game this is decisive.”

Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa: “A very important win given our position in the table, due to the results we have been obtaining that are not positive. It is not frequent, and we went quickly from joy to sadness, but that is what football has that is extraordinary.

“Without goals the performance is not expressed. It is very difficult to score. To be able to count on players that unbalance is very necessary.”
