Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa lauds Raphinha on his debut goal

Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa has heaped praises on winger Raphinha whom he feels has quickly adapted to life in the Premier League.

Raphinha who joined Leeds from Ligue 1 side Rennes registered his first goal of the season against Everton to give the Whites three points away from home.

"He's adapted very quickly to the Premier League," Bielsa told reporters in his post-match interview.

"Victor Orta (sporting director) anticipated that he had the characteristics to play in this league, so he was correct in choosing him.

"He's potent and moves all around the pitch, so he worries the opposing defence."
