Richarlison Hails ‘Special Relationship’ With Marco Silva
Everton forward Richarlison says that the tutelage of current boss Marco Silva is the biggest reason for his success in England.
Silva brought Richarlison to England at Watford, before Silva left Vicarage Road for Everton in 2018 and signed Richarlison for the Toffees.
“Marco Silva has helped me from the first day I arrived in England, always pushing me to develop and evolve,” Richarlison told evertonfc.com.
“During training, he talks to me a lot and does not hesitate to call me in his office for us to have discussions and watch videos, to explain what is good or bad about my game.
“It helps me a lot and there is a special relationship between us.It requires more from me because he knows my potential – and it is thanks to this requirement that I integrated into the Brazil team.
“During training, he always demands that I claim the ball and score goals. As soon as something does not fit, he tells me. And he is always encouraging me to concentrate and work hard for the team.”
Richarlison was part of the Brazil squad that won Copa América on home soil this summer, scoring a penalty in the final.
