Raphinha reveals how he will celebrate if Barcelona win the Champions league

winger Raphael Dias Belloli, popularly known as Raphinha, is already dreaming big and hoping for victory in the UEFA Champions League.

The international has been impressive since joining the Catalan giants from Premier League side Leeds United in the summer transfer window.

With Xavi Hernandez’s team having a great start in both La Liga and UEFA Champions League, Raphinha is targeting silverware in June next year.

“If we win the Champions League, I’ll walk across the Camp Nou pitch or wherever we play the final on my knees – I did that back at Leeds as well, same thing,” Raphinha said in his interview with La Vanguardia, quoted by Marca.

Raphina already walked the length of the pitch on his knees last season after he aided Leeds United to escape relegation.

It appears that the knee walking appears to be an act of faith. Per Twitter account @LeedsEverywhere, walking on the the knee is a ritual done by South Americans to repay god for the wish you requested or thanks god for granting their wish.

It is not known yet whether Raphinha had wished to win the Champions League with Barcelona.
