Report outlines what Benitez expects from Everton ace Richarlison
Rafael Benitez expects Everton ace Richarlison to repay the support shown to him by the club, according to the Telegraph.
The attacker was allowed to join up with Brazil for this summer’s Olympics. Everton were previously reluctant to let the attacker compete in Tokyo after his involvement at the Copa America. However, the Toffees relented and the ace will now feature in the tournament.
Richarlison sale would be disastrous for Everton
Selling Richarlison would be a disastrous move from Everton amid claims over the expectations from Benitez.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin and the 24-year-old were the only two bright spots in an otherwise dismal campaign last year. The duo oozed consistency throughout, while the likes of Gylfi Sigurdsson and James Rodriguez struggled.
However, the biggest problem would be losing a player of his age. At just 24, Richarlison is one of the youngest members of the Everton attack. His fearless drive and determination gives hope for a better future.
Meanwhile, the likes of Sigurdsson and Rodriguez are the wrong side of 30 and provide no scope for future improvement.
With Andros Townsend and Demarai Gray close to finalising moves to the club, it is clear replacements won’t be of the desired quality.
But, with the likes of Real Madrid sniffing around, the chances Richarlison could leave are high. Everton need to stave off interest in their gem, whose sale would be disastrous.
