Cenk Tosun: “Richarlison is a very young player and still has a lot to learn but despite his young age, he is so experienced and dynamic that it amazes me that he is that good.
“The road is very open. He is a footballer with the potential to play for one of the best clubs in the world.”
Brazilian World Cup winner Gilberto Silva has also praised Richarlison’s tenacity to evertonfc.com.
Gilberto Silva: “Now Richarlison has played for the national team as well and it is great for a young player to be in the squad – it will raise his confidence.
He is a different type of Brazil striker because he likes to fight. If you look back at the type of strikers we have had in the past he is a bit different.
“He really suits the Premier League and is different from a lot of Brazilian forwards of the past”
“He is quite physical and although he is young, he is the type of guy who will fight for the cause. I think he is going to do well at Everton. In his first year in England, honestly, I was so happy to see his attitude on the pitch.
“He is skilful and he is a fighter. He is young with a lot still to learn and he will grow as a professional and a man and develop in a different environment at a big club.”
