You always have to question a player who’s taking his shirt off to celebrate these days, but it turns out this is one of the situations where it’s almost worth taking the booking.
Raphinha had a brilliant game for Leeds tonight and he capped off their win over Southampton with a late free kick, while he could be seen taking his shirt off in celebration:

You can see during the celebration that there’s some writing on the shirt, and it turns out he was paying tribute to Ronaldinho’s Mother who passed away last week:
“Much strength for the Assis Moreira Family. Rest in Peace Dona Miguelina”
