Everton star Richarlison has said he is very happy Goodison Park, and revealed he wants to continue to develop under Carlo Ancelotti. The Brazilian goalscorer, who was in action against Liverpool at the weekend, has also explained his one derby day regret.
Richarlison said “I’m really happy at the club, the fans really like me and I really like the club. They’ve supported me since I arrived. I intend to play many more games, even more so now with the arrival of Ancelotti. He’s always helping me. Everything’s there for me to grow and develop within the club. The manager is always talking to me. He’s trained the greatest strikers in the world, Ronaldo and [Andriy] Shevchenko, for example, and he says I’m in his top-10 list of best attackers. So I’m really happy to be training with Ancelotti, he’s really experienced and well known in world football, with numerous trophies. I’m here to learn and he’ll help me a lot here at the club. The good game we had against Liverpool gives us confidence, because we need to move up the table and meet our objectives, We want to get in the Europa League. We can see we’re close and we have a good run of games… we need to win as many points as possible. I was really looking forward to getting back to playing as soon as possible and I started smiling when I stepped on the pitch as I was so happy to be back. It was a really important game for us. We felt the [lack of] atmosphere without the fans, of course, but the important thing was that we were back and came back well. We were looking for a goal until the last minute. Unfortunately, it didn’t come, it was minor details. I watched the game back when I got home and saw I could have passed to Alex but, unfortunately, I opted to shoot. But these things happen and are part of the game.”
