Few players have had the career of Rivaldo so when he talks you listen.
One of the stars of the 2002 World Cup as Brazil won it, he’s played for some of the best clubs in the world and proven to be one of the best players in the world.
He knows talent when he sees it, then, and it looks as though our young Brazilian is catching his eye.
Richarlison has shone so far for us and looks a proper player as well as obviously having the potential to become a real ace in the future too.
And, for Rivaldo, a great career awaits.
As quoted by the official club site, he said:
“Richarlison is producing solid performances in the Premier League.
“He is clearly a good player, with great potential that could be really important for Brazil soon.
“Everton spent a good amount of money on his signing. Nowadays is hard to know if a player really deserves the money spent on him because the transfer values are really high.
“But I believe he will justify the investment at Everton. He is making things happen.”
Certainly, Rivaldo could play and if Richarlison could have half the career he had we’ll be laughing.
That’s all in the future, though, let’s not put too much pressure on him already as he is still such a young player.
