As you can imagine, we’ve not been able to share most of the comments posted about Rafael by Liverpool fans, as they’re far too explicit!
But we’ve collated a load of the replies when we shared his quotes on Twitter – so you can gauge a sense of the outrage that followed.
If you haven’t already heard, Rafael stated he thought it’d be ‘great’ if the season was cancelled due to COVID-19 and Liverpool couldn’t win the title…
At least he’s actually being open in his reasoning for wanting the season voided, unlike everyone in the Premier League who is slyly doing so under the guise of morality when it’s actually for selfish reasons.
Still. the Brazilian, now at Lyon, will not get his wish. This football season will be completed – there is no way the game can survive financially if it doesn’t – and the Reds will secure no.19 – which will put us one behind Manchester United.
Who would bet that under Jurgen Klopp, we won’t overtake their record of 20?

At least this guy’s being honest about his motives, unlike the rest. Suck it up world, it’s happening and we’re gonna be DOUBLE unbearable!

Sucking up to the Manc fans like Luke Shaw. Will be all the sweeter when we are crowned.

Getting a bit desperate and boring now.
The reds day will come and these nobodies will regret every word they say.#unbearables

Looks like a bench warmer for a mid table team to me…

Fan banter I can understand but the amount of noise coming from people within the game is all rather desperate. If we end up denied the title this year with our lead they need to realise how truly tinpot the trophy will have become.
