When Paris Saint-Germain announced the signing of Rafinha, one could already point to the strong chemistry that he would form with several players on the team. Rafinha has had experience in playing alongside a couple of players on the team, including Neymar and Mauro Icardi. So for the Brazilian, it was expected that he would be a quality addition to the team for not only his on-pitch play but also locker room presence.
The early results have indicated this to be the case and Rafinha is in agreement. He spoke to Telefoot about his early impressions of the team and went on to laud the group for its strong unity.
"J'ai été très surpris par l'ambiance dans le vestiaire : c'est extraordinaire" 🤩

“The atmosphere is extraordinary,” Rafinha said. “It’s a very united group. But yes I was very surprised by the great atmosphere that reigns in this locker room where I was able to find former teammates.”
Rafinha’s transfer move to PSG is already looking to be one of the best bargain deals by the club in recent memory.
