Richarlison Pays Tribute to Teammate Huerelho Gomes
Watford striker Richarlison has paid tribute to teammate Huerelho Gomes, who has helped the 21 year old forward settle into life in Hertfordshire since arriving from Fluminense during the summer.
Gomes has acted as a translator and mentor for the youngster since his arrival. Richarlison told The Sun newspaper, “It’s great to have Heurelho here. He has helped me a lot — finding a house, a car, everything.
“To be honest, I knew pretty much nothing about Watford as a town or a club. But I feel so comfortable — the players, the staff, the board and the fans have made me so welcome.”
The youngster spoke warmly about fan culture in England compared to Brazil too, “Living in Rio is dangerous sometimes. If you lose a game in Brazil, you cannot walk about among the fans.
“Fans in Brazil cross the line. A few times at Fluminense, the fans would go to the airport after we had played away to shout at us.
“After home games, they would block the coach and make life very difficult. Here the fans respect you as a person. The way I live is totally different here.”
