With three goals in two games this season, there’s no reason for Richarlison not to be excited with his start in the Premier League.
The Brazilian has guided Everton to the top four so far, and is confident enough to say he wants to keep it that way.
Speaking to UOL, Richarlison claimed that the reason for recent success is that he’s more adapted to English football, and has already set his goals for the season.
“I feel more prepared, I already know the pace and style of the Premier League, which helps me on the way to the achievements,” Richarlison told UOL.
“I want to be the top scorer of the league, take Everton back to the Champions League and therefore reach the Brazilian national team.”
Regarding the arrival of Colombian defender Yerry Mina, who used to play in Brazil and speaks a little bit of Portuguese, Richarlison said: “He came dancing, he promised to repeat when he scores and he said he wants to learn to samba, which he does not know yet.”
Richarlison also talked about the national team, as he was once again left out by manager Tite in last week’s call up: “Well, I was looking forward to the call up of Friday, I was expecting a lot, but unfortunately it wasn’t this time, but I’m still hopeful and I want to be prepared if the opportunity arises in the future.”
Asked if he knows the reason to be out, he said: “I can’t tell, there are 24 names and it’s difficult for the manager to choose, I’ll keep working to be on the next list.”
