Richarlison has admitted he wants to be remembered as a great player in the history of Everton Football Club.
In a recent interview with the Blues, the Brazilian has opened up about his ambitions whilst with the Merseyside outfit. Richarlison wants to help re-establish Everton as a ‘prominent’ side.
“Since I arrived, I have always stated that I want to be victorious playing for Everton,” the 23-year-old told the club. “I would love to achieve this goal and be remembered as a great player in the history of the club.”
The Toffees signed the forward in 2018 for a fee of £50 million, making him the club’s record signing (via BBC Sport). Richarlison joined the Everton ranks after rising into the spotlight for his performances with Watford. The Brazil international has scored 26 goals in 70 appearances for the Blues so far (via Transfermarkt).
