Raphinha shares a story about Juve defender Danilo

Barcelona’s new star Raphinha reveals that he received a lot of help during his Brazil debut from Juventus defender Danilo.

The former Leeds United star made his Selecao debut back in 2021 and is currently on track to be part of their World Cup squad.

During his first game from Brazil, Raphinha apparently has an interesting story involving Juves defender, Danilo. The ex-Manchester City player is known for his leadership and willingness to help teammates.

That attitude is not just something that is visible for Juve players but apparently also in the Brazil national team.

Raphinha reveals how he received much-needed help during his first game with the Selecao. Brazil was playing against Venezuela and managed to win 3-1 with the Barca star grabbing two assists.

During the game, Raphinha reveals how Danilo gives calming words that eventually help the young winger to excel.

The Juventus defender will now need to show more of that leadership to help his club improve their performance this season.

Raphinha on what Danilo said to help him during his Brazil debut:

“When you get the ball, go ahead and try to dribble them, I’ll be here to protect you,” Raphinha told Brazilian Youtuber Fui Clear(via Football Italia).

“If you lose the ball, I’ll recover it and give it to you, so you can try again.”
