Richarlison Looking to Create Bond with Everton Fans
Everton forward Richarlison is already making an impression with Toffees fans and the player is looking to cement the bond still further.
Richarlison gave his shirt to a young fan in the crowd following the pre-season friendly with Blackburn Rovers at Goodison Park.
“I was really happy. When I saw the little girl with the poster asking for my shirt at the Blackburn game, I wanted to make sure she got it. I gave one to her and she was overjoyed.
“I think this is wonderful because when I was young, I was a big football fan. I wanted to get players’ shirts, their boots.
“So that’s something I always try to do - give them something to make them happy,” he told the Everton website. The 21 year old also promised the fans something special for his first goal.
“My dancing is good,” he added. “I’m hoping to score my first goal and do the dance I promised – the pigeon dance - so I am looking forward to it. It’s good the fans are waiting for it!”
