TRANSFER: Raphael Borges Rodrigues joins Coventry City

24 May 2024

Coventry City are delighted to announce we have agreed to sign Raphael Borges Rodrigues.

The 20-year-old winger joins the Sky Blues from Australian side Macarthur FC, subject to EFL and FA ratification. He has agreed to sign a contract with City until 30th June 2028.

Raphael first joined Melbourne City Academy in 2017. Raphael made his first start for Melbourne City in the Melbourne Derby in June 2021 and would go on to be named on the bench in the 2021 A-League Grand Final before scoring his first professional goal in March 2022.

After a total of 17 games and 2 goals for Melbourne City, he joined fellow A-League side Macarther FC in June 2023. Last season would see Raphael enjoy his most prolific season to date, netting 6 goals in 33 appearances for the Sydney based side.

Born in the Netherlands, Brazilian-Australian Raphael has represented Australia at youth level having moved there at the age of 5.

Manager Mark Robins said:

“We are really pleased to welcome Rapha to the club. He is a talented and athletic winger who has just enjoyed an impressive 2023/24 campaign.

“Rapha has some great attributes and a willingness to work and learn, and I’m sure we will enjoy his development during his time with us.”
