Everton star Richarlison is one of the few players who’ve shown their discontent regarding the creation of the European Super League so far.
The Toffees’ forward, who’s well known for always speaking out on social media, came up today with a series of tweets and retweets which go against the new tournament.
Richarlison first retweeted a video in which Manchester United idol and Salford City owner Gary Neville claimed to be ‘disgusted’ with the Super League, adding a few emojis of claps in support.
Later on, with Mesut Ozil pointing out ‘Kids grow up wanting to win the World Cup and the Champions League – not any Super League’, Richarlison retweeted the message as well, this time claiming ‘that’s it’.
As widely known, Richarlison had a tough childhood in Brazil and needed the existence of small clubs to climb up to European football. He had his first professional chances at América-MG, where he played in the second division, and was later spotted by Fluminense, who despite having never won the Copa Libertadores, are a big team in Brazil who play against the best in the league.
That’s how he managed to draw the attention from Watford, then made the move to Everton, where his dream of playing in the Champions League, as expressed in a few interviews, is supposed to be closer than ever.
