Otamendi mocks elbow blow on Leeds winger Raphinha

Benfica's Argentina defender Nicolas Otamendi has mocked the reaction to his elbow on Brazil winger Raphinha this week.

During the World Cup qualifying 0-0 draw, Otamendi struck the Leeds star in the face with his elbow, leaving him bleeding.

Raphinha needed five stitches to attend to the wound.

TyC Sports published an image the moment Otamendi struck Raphinha and the former mocked it online.

The Benfica player replied: "Todo pelota", in English: "It was in the ball".
