‘He’s amazing’: Ivan Perisic shares the one Tottenham player who he absolutely loves playing with

Tottenham Hotspur winger Ivan Perisic has spoken to the club’s official website and shared the one player he absolutely loves playing with

Perisic was handed another start by Antonio Conte last night as Spurs beat Marseille 2-0. 

Conte’s men got off to a winning start in their Champions League campaign but were lacklustre before the opposition were reduced to 10 men. 

But a quickfire brace from Richarlison in the final 15 minutes of the game handed Spurs an important three points. 

And Perisic has revealed that he really enjoys playing alongside the Brazilian.

Perisic loves playing with Richarlison

Speaking to Spurs Play, Perisic heaped praise on Richarlison after the striker scored two brilliant headed goals. 

“I’m really happy for him [Richarlison],” he said. 

“He’s a really good player, a good person he’s working hard every training [session] and he was waiting for his chance. 

“I think first Champions League game for him, two goals and a dream start. 

“I hope he scores more than 23 goals because it will help us a lot. He’s amazing and I like to have a player like him in the team.”

Perisic and Richarlison only joined Spurs this summer but both have hit the ground running in North London. 

The Croatian set-up Richarlison for his first goal of the evening after delivering a pinpoint cross into the box. 

Spurs were busy this summer as the club brought in seven new players and the pair have arguably had the biggest impact out of the new additions so far. 

Perisic has already picked up three assists in seven appearances from the wing-back role. And Richarlison has now scored two and assisted twice in six appearances. 

Both players have clearly settled in quickly in North London and Conte will be hoping they can continue to produce for his side. 

It was another lacklustre display for Spurs for a large period of the game after what was a more promising display against Fulham on the weekend. 

Conte’s men have once again found a way to get a result but they will need to perform at a much higher level on Saturday as they travel to Manchester City.
