Bielsa explains decision to take out Raphinha against West Ham


Why Raphinha was arrested early in Leeds meeting with West Ham

Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa has given an explanation as to why star striker Raphinha was retired early in his team’s meeting with West Ham United this afternoon.

Bielsa and company returned to action in the Premier League recently.

After stuttering to just three points out of fifteen available in the opening weeks of 2021/22, the Whites welcomed West Ham on Elland Road, seeking a much-needed victory to kick off their campaign.

However, when all was said and done, Leeds’ efforts once again fell short.

The Peacocks managed to take the lead in the proceedings, when Raphinha led home a typically accurate finish in twenty minutes.

But West Ham soon regained control, first leveling things out via an own goal from Junior Firpo, before Michail Antonio turned the clash around to secure the three points with a late winner:

However, the troubles at Leeds, who have now slipped into the Premier League relegation zone, did not end with their last damaging result on Saturday.

Additional concern spread to star player Raphinha, who looked like one of the few bright sparks during the action against West Ham, being dragged into the middle of the second half, with the score locked at 1-1.

Later, the Brazilian was seen tied with an ice bag on the bench, amid new concerns about another injury in the ranks of Marcelo Bielsa.

In turn, speaking during his post-match press duties, the Leeds boss was inevitably drawn in, leading to Raphinha being replaced by Tyler Roberts.

And the strategist went on to confirm that the 24-year-old himself asked to be taken out of action, implying that he had indeed been injured in some way.
