Huerelho Gomes Hails Brazil’s New Generation
Watford goalkeeper Huerelho Gomes says that Brazil are enjoying the fruits of a new generation of talented players. With the likes of Gabriel Jesus, Vinicius Junior, Malcom and his Hornets teammate Richarlison coming to the fore.
Speaking to UOL Esporte, Gomes said, “After a bad (Brazilian) generation, we managed to have a very good and talented one. In Richarlison’s case, he’s complete. Not only for what he does on the pitch, but off it as well.
“He has a family base, his feet are on the ground and this is very important to achieve the full potential he has. Often the player limits himself on the pitch by what he does off it. Gabriel Jesus arrived ready too, Ederson already established himself.
“It’s not because you have talent that it will work, you have to plan the right career. Had Richarlison gone to Chelsea would he have the same opportunities he has at Watford? No way. Between Watford and Chelsea the player will want who? Of course Chelsea.
“That’s why I say Richarlison is complete, it was his decision. Tactically he is excellent and in Europe, if the player doesn’t have that ability, it won’t work. He is strong, fast and has dribbles that unsettle opponents. It’s complicated to mark him.”
