‘Make it happen John Henry’ – Leeds star’s impressive performance has these Liverpool fans all saying the same thing

Posted by

Following Raphina’s display in Leeds United’s 2-1 victory over Premier League strugglers Norwich City, a number of Liverpool fans hopped onto Twitter to share their appreciation for the Brazilian.

The 24-year-old was heavily linked with an Anfield switch in the prior summer window after poor performances from Sadio Mane and Bobby Firmino in the last campaign.

The pair have since rediscovered the form that made them stand out alongside Mo Salah as the world’s most impressive attacking trio.

With all three of our main forward line’s contracts set to expire in 2023, there has to be some consideration for forward planning as far as our recruitment team is concerned.

Firmino is already in his 30s, with both Mane and our Egyptian international set to join him at various stages of the season, which raises questions about the need to introduce fresh blood.

It’s not a conversation that we particularly revel in bringing up in light of all that our No.10 and No.9 have contributed to the cause, though it’s no less necessary if plans to hand our No.11 a new contract won’t extend to the former duo.
