Leeds: Raphinha may need to isolate for five days next month

Leeds: Raphinha may need to isolate for five days next month -Leeds United

Leeds United star Raphinha may have to isolate for five days following the upcoming international break, according to TyC Sports, cited by Sports Witness.

The Lowdown: Raphinha’s fine form; second call-up

Raphinha was called up by Brazil for the first time last month but turned down the opportunity to represent his country, a decision which was hailed by Leeds owner Andrea Radrizzani.

The 24-year-old has impressed since then, netting in back-to-back Premier League games against Newcastle and West Ham.

His displays have once again been recognised, with the winger being named in Brazil’s squad for the October internationals against Venezuela, Colombia and Uruguay.

Is Raphinha the best player at Leeds?





The Latest: Five-day isolation?

TyC Sports, cited by Sports Witness, shared a story claiming the UK government will allow South American players to travel directly to England following the international fixtures.

They will have to isolate for five days, however, so with Brazil’s final fixture of the break on October 15, Raphinha would miss Leeds’ trip to Southampton on October 16.

The Verdict: Another decision to make…

The wide man has been managing a hip injury in recent weeks and could be a doubt for the club’s first October clash against Watford on Saturday.

It would be a big blow if Raphinha is unavailable for two fixtures next month, as he has comfortably been the club’s best-rated performer this season. [WhoScored]

Following this update, it appears as if he will at the very least miss the second game of the month against the Saints, unless he puts club before country once again and remains in Yorkshire.
