Leeds United dealt Raphinha injury blow in Wolves clash at Elland Road as furious Brazilian is helped down tunnel

Leeds United's star Brazilian winger Raphinha had to be taken off injured during Saturday's Premier League clash against Wolves at Elland Road.

Saturday, 23rd October 2021, 5:31 pm

Raphinha was proving United's brightest spark on the right wing but was caught by Wolves defender Romain Saiss shortly into the second half with Leeds 1-0 down.

Raphinha immediately looked in trouble as he went to ground, clearly in pain, and the Brazilian gestured to referee Robert Jones before getting to his feet and hoping off the pitch for treatment on the sidelines.

Saiss was eventually booked but Raphinha was clearly struggling, unable to put full weight on his foot, and was then helped down the tunnel as Crysencio Summerville took his place.
