Earlier today, we’ve covered a piece from the Brazilian media saying Everton have been receiving bids of over £50m for Richarlison.
And it turns out that UOL, who wrote the story, also brings an interesting episode from the time when the striker played for Watford.
They say at least once a month, Premier League clubs organise dinners so they can bring their squads members closer to each other. And Richarlison almost purposely missed one of those at Watford in 2017.
It happened when the Hornets lost 5-0 to Manchester City at Vicarage Road. UOL says Richarlison was ‘revolted with himself and the teammates’ for such a loss and saw no reason to fraternise at that time. He had been in England for just a few months.
UOL only uses the story as a introduction to the information they were about to give, claiming that this episode shows a little of Richarlison’s personality.
Signed by Watford on a £11m deal from Fluminense in 2017, Richarlison had five goals and five assists in 41 games for the Hornets. He was sold to Everton in the summer of 2018 for £35m.
