ESPN Brasil is airing a new exclusive interview with Everton star Richarlison.
Speaking about the remainder of the Toffees’ season, the 23 year-old talked about the challenge of bringing the club to the Champions League after so many years.
“It means a lot. Especially because the club haven’t played in the Champions League for a long time. So I think it will be very good for the club, for the fans too, who have been waiting for this for a long time. So I think it will be good and we’ll fight to get this place for the club and for our fans,” Richarlison told ESPN Brasil.
“The Champions League is a child’s dream. And I have also made it very clear that I’m crazy to play in the Champions League because the age goes by and we want to play in the best competitions. So I want to be in the best competitions and I want to be disputing everything.”
Richarlison also talked about the change of roles he’s had at Everton. With 12 goals scored this season, he claims he’s asked manager Carlo Ancelotti to give him a new position in the team.
“He had a change in my position because I was defending a lot too. I was there with Mina. So I told him that I wanted to be closer to the opposing goal to be scoring goals and that’s where he changed my position to.
“And Dominic and I, we’ve been playing together for three years, we know each other very well up front. So we have a lot of goals this season and I hope that in this remainder of the competition we can maintain our scoring form.”
Earlier this week, Richarlison had already spoken to the Brazilian media, this time with Pilhado Youtube Channel. In that conversation, the forward talked about the incident he had with Liverpool midfielder Thiago Alcantara, who didn’t accept apologies and didn’t even ‘look at his face’ in the last Merseyside derby.
Following the international break, Everton now play Crystal Palace at Goodison Park on Monday. Despite being in the 8th position, the Toffees have played one game less which can bring them two places up in case they win it.
