Everton: Paddy Kenny slams Richarlison comments

Everton: Paddy Kenny slams Richarlison comments -Everton News

Former Premier League goalkeeper Paddy Kenny has been left slamming some comments made by Richarlison involving Everton.

The Lowdown: Richarlison admission

A source close to Richarlison has told iNews that the Brazil international wants to move to a ‘bigger club’ and ‘of the highest standard’, amid interest from Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea in his signature.

The Goodison Park outfit were almost relegated from the Premier League last season, but Richarlison saved them with six goals and two assists in his last ten games in the top flight (Transfermarkt).

The Latest: Kenny reacts

Speaking to Football Insider, Kenny, 44, was left slamming Richarlison’s comments, even going as far as to claim that they were ‘disgusting’:

“If he has said he wants to move to a bigger club then that’s disgusting.

“When you are already at a club. We all might be thinking that but you don’t say that, you don’t let it get to the papers.

“On signing him, he’s not Mo Salah, he doesn’t get those numbers. He does produce now and again, would he be better in another side? Only a move will tell us that.

“Clubs could be put off signing him because of the way he acts, it will be interesting to see if he gets that move.”

Everton fans! Do you remember who scored your first league goal of the 21/22 season?

The Verdict: Harsh

Kenny’s verdict on Richarlison’s comments is harsh, given his loyalty to the Merseyside club over the last four seasons.

He has scored a total of 53 goals and supplied a further 14 assists in 152 matches over all competitions for the Toffees (Transfermarkt), and at 25 years of age and with the FIFA World Cup just around the corner, he has to be thinking about his long-term future.

The Blues are a big club in their own right, but off the back of a poor campaign, one has to question whether they will win anything over the next few years, and Richarlison is a player who will want to go on and win trophies in his career.
