‘He’s got personality’: Jamie O’Hara says 25-year-old Tottenham man looks like he could be sent off in every game
Jamie O’Hara has been speaking to Sky Sports today and said Tottenham Hotspur striker Richarlison looks like he could be sent off every week.
The former Spurs midfielder praised Richarlison for his performance against Fulham yesterday.
The 25-year-old was handed his first start by boss Antonio Conte after making four substitute appearances beforehand.
And the Brazilian certainly impressed as he set-up Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg for Tottenham’s opener.
The former Everton man also had a goal ruled out by VAR and saw an excellent volley come back off the post.
But O’Hara has been impressed with his performances and says he’s the type of player who looks like he could be sent off every week.
O’Hara says Richarlison looks like he could be sent off
“He was brilliant yesterday, he was fantastic. The assist he gets, it’s just his all-round game,” O’Hara told Sky Sports.
“He’s got this sort of edge to him, he looks like he can get sent off every week. He’s got personality and what he does is he draws it out of other people as well.
“You see him racing around, you see him putting tackles in. All of a sudden you see everyone else think ‘ok’.
“He adds a bit of bite to your side and he was absolutely fantastic, that [Richarlison hitting the post against Fulham] was a great effort.”
Richarlison is certainly a player who plays with aggression, in a similar way to his new teammate Cristian Romero.
Conte will be delighted to have players like Richarlison as he aims to make his Spurs team a tough opponent to play against.
The Brazilian has made a real impact in North London so far and has been pushing Heung-Min Son and Dejan Kulusevski for a place in the side.
After such a bright display against the Cottagers, it will be interesting to see if Richarlison can now nail down a place in Conte’s starting eleven.
