Leeds boss Bielsa admits Liverpool target Raphinha 'very ambitious': I can't teach him much

Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa says star player Raphinha is 'very ambitious'.

The Brazilian, who has been linked with Liverpool, has been Leeds' star player this season after arriving from Rennes last summer.

And Raphinha won praise from his manager after scoring in the 3-0 win over Southampton.

"He's a player who unbalances by himself," Bielsa said. "He's very ambitious, very competitive.

"It's a mixture that's not very common because he works a lot and on top of that he is creative and can unbalance.

"I sincerely think that I can add very little to his game. The best thing you can do with players who are so spontaneous is let them to be themselves."
