Here are the latest Leeds United morning titles on Wednesday 2nd June.
Raphinha’s “standards” hailed
Raphinha’s commitment to the Leeds United cause was praised by team-mate Tyler Roberts, who spoke about the standards of the Brazilian’s training ground.
Raphinha has enjoyed a superb first season at Elland Road following his signing deadline at the end of last summer’s transfer window, performing 30 times in the Premier League, scoring six goals and providing nine assists.
But as Roberts explained to The Beautiful Game Podcast, there is more to South America than just tips and flair.
“Baller. He’s different with that, not just a match day player, ”said the Welsh international.
“He’s a player I like a lot. In addition to being Brazilian and having flair, his pace of work is ridiculous. If we do shooting practice and everyone laughs, he gets angry if he misses one or if he makes a mistake in his technique.
“He has standards. Some of the things he does are outrageous. He’s Brazilian, he just likes to play football. In Murderball, he runs, gets on the ball, passes people. He doesn’t speak too much English but he’s improving, he’s a good vibe man. He was awesome.

“We have set a high benchmark in recruiting and we have to make sure that those we bring in because we want to run the club in a sustainable way are really better and can improve on what we already have,” he said. told the Phil Hay Show.
“It is our intention to strengthen ourselves, but it will be done in a judicious and targeted manner.
“We shouldn’t throw the baby out with the bathwater because what we have is a team that will end up halfway through the league and have the potential to finish four or five places higher.”
Beren Cross has looked at the three key areas Leeds needs to focus on here.
Augustine decision due?
A decision on RB Leipzig’s legal dispute with Leeds United around the millions owed to Jean-Kevin Augustin would be taken in the coming days.
Mitteldeutsche Zeitung, a German regional daily, reports that FIFA will make a first decision on the location of each club by the end of this week.
The report goes on to say that the Red Bull Arena side are ultimately hoping to see € 21million from Whites due to their promotion to the Premier League with Augustine on their books.
The clubs would be informed next week of the decision taken by a single judge on the FIFA Players’ Status Committee.
