The Barcelona signing openly admits to a “complicated” start to his career at Camp Nou | Tech US News


Raphinha has admitted he is finding it ‘complicated’ to settle in at Barcelona and the lack of goals is affecting his confidence.

The Brazilian landed a dream move to the Nou Camp from Leeds last summer and was expected to be a key man in rebuilding the Catalan club.

However, he has found life in La Liga difficult and has not contributed a goal since a 3-0 win over Sevilla at the start of September.

“Adjustment has proved difficult: I’m a striker and I like to score. I scored one official goal all season and it hurts you a bit.

“I’m adapting, but my teammates are helping me and I’m working hard to adapt as quickly as possible.”

Despite his personal struggles this season, Barcelona seem to be making some progress under Xavi Hernandez and Raphinha is confident things will turn out well for the club sooner rather than later.

Asked how he felt with Xavi, the former Leeds man said: “Very good. He’s trying to put his stamp on it and use his ideas and make changes.

“We always play to win and we will fight for all the titles.”
