Raphinha claims to be playing his best football since he came to Barça. He was speaking ahead of the Europa League showdown with Manchester United, a game he says "will be one the best games to experience of the whole season."
"I have hit my best form" he said. "It is never easy to come to a new club where you hardly know anything. I am adapting to the city, to the league and to the style of play. But everyone has been helping me, my team-mates, the coach and all the staff."
Raphinha adds that "Manchester United is one of the best teams in the world. They have great players and they are doing things right. They have gone through a bad patch just like Barça, but all big clubs get that now and again. The important thing is to turn things around and get back up there with the best again."
