Raphinha, from Brazil's Copa America training camp, confronted a fan who criticised Barcelona, the club he plays for, in the middle of signing autographs for the fans who had approached him. The newspaper 'Sport' published a video of the moment, in which the winger can be seen asking the fan if he thought what he had just done was funny.

The Brazilian national team, after a draw against the United States that was not enough for the 'Selecao', is now finalising their preparations for their debut in the Copa America. They will make their debut against Costa Rica, an opponent that, probably, will not see Raphinha in the starting eleven due to the role of Rodrygo Goes and Vinicius Junior. Even so, the Barcelona player arouses passions in the 'Selecao' training camp.
That is why, on Sunday, a group of fans approached him to ask for autographs on some clothes or personal belongings or papers. The former Leeds United man was happy to attend to the fans, although he did have a brief moment of tension with one of those present who criticised the club he plays for, which prompted a stern response from him and a stern look on his face.
The newspaper 'Sport' published this conversation on its social networks. The former Rennes and Sporting CP striker can be heard asking his interlocutor if he thought what he had just done was funny. Before that, the viewer can be heard telling him, in English, that he didn't understand him, so it is quite likely that he was an American with no special ties to the 'Cule' national team.
Raphinha has a contract with Barcelona until 30th June 2027 and has just completed his second season in Barcelona after arriving in the summer of 2022 for 58 million euros from the Premier League.
