‘Fighter’ Richarlison Will Excel at Everton, Predicts Gilberto Silva
Former Arsenal and Brazil midfielder Gilberto Silva says that new Everton forward Richarlison has what it takes to be a success at Goodison Park, following his big money summer move from Watford.
Silva, who won a Premier League title with Arsenal and the 2002 World Cup with Brazil, thinks the player has the qualities suited to a club like Everton.
“He really suits the Premier League and is different from a lot of Brazilian forwards of the past,” Gilberto told evertonfc.com.
“He is quite physical and although he is young, he is the type of guy who will fight for the cause. I think he is going to do well at Everton.
“In his first year in England, honestly, I was so happy to see his attitude on the pitch. He is skilful and he is a fighter. He is young with a lot still to learn and he will grow as a professional and a man and develop in a different environment at a big club.”
“The national manager, Tite, closely follows the Brazilian players abroad. And being with Everton will help Richarlison a lot.
“This is a huge opportunity for him now to develop and achieve things in his career. But it is a big challenge as well, a new challenge.
“It is important he focuses on helping Everton achieve their aims and if he does that he will achieve his personal goals as well.”
