Baines Hails Richarlison Signing
Everton left-back Leighton Baines has hailed the signing of Brazilian forward Richarlison after the player made his debut in a pre-season friendly against Blackburn Rovers.
Richarlison signed for the Merseyside club for a fee in the region of £40m this summer and Baines says the player has already made an impression on his teammates.
“I think we saw against Blackburn more than a couple of glimpses of what he’s all about,” the left-back told evertontv.. “He seems to have settled in well and, if you are judging by what we’ve seen on the pitch, then you’d say he has done.
“He’s got fantastic quality, we saw that last year in the Premier League, we’ve seen that already in his couple of days of training and playing half a game with us, so we look forward to seeing more of him.
“I enjoyed that 45 minutes playing with him. He was always available, he can go alone if he needs to, and he’s got an eye for a pass so he’s definitely someone who you can combine with. We managed to link up together a couple of times against Blackburn.”
