Like Football Manager 2015 on Facebook

Younger brother of Thiago Alcantara is proving to the world he has a great potential and most definitely will be one of best wonderkids in FM 2015.

Once he was thirteen he was registered at the best youth academy in footballing world - La Masija, and ever since he's representing colours of Blaugrana. In 2011. he was transferred to Barcelona B team. Same year he made his debut for the first team in cup competition and also made a debut appearance in the Champions League, however he never played for Barcelona in Primera.

So Rafinha spent last season on a loan in Celta which was managed by Louis Enrique. Needless to say that he was one of the main players while on loan, scoring four times and adding five assists in 32 appearances. Once Enrique was announced as the new Barca manager, his first move was on bringing back Rafinha to the first team.

His preferred or natural position is as a right winger, even thou he started his career as a central midfielder and can still play equally well at this position. He prefers to hug the touchline while in the attacking third. Also he posses great dribbling abilities and flair. However, Rafinha does not dwell long on his side, his characteristic move is sudden change of rhythm and entering in the middle of the pitch, similar to what Robben and Messi are doing, and because his left foot is the stronger one.

He retained some habits from the time when he began his football story, so it's no problem for him to go back to get the ball in his own half and if necessary to enter into a duel, and is very useful in the defence, especially when Barca's aggressive pressure comes into work when tiki-taka fails. This style of play earned him seven yellow cards.

Do we have new Robben on our hands, time and Football Manager 2015 will answer this question.
