Richarlison has really impressed Conte and Tottenham teammates

Tottenham Hotspur boss Antonio Conte and all the players at the club have been really impressed by Richarlison since his big-money move this summer, according to Football London.

Spurs were desperate for a new attacker. They were looking for someone who could play across the front line and Richarlison was the man.

Richarlison has really impressed Conte and Tottenham teammates

Tottenham made up their mind very early that they wanted to sign Richarlison.

The Brazilian was arguably Everton’s best player during his time there, and he was always destined for a big move away from Goodison Park. Spurs beat some serious competition for his signature by sealing a £60 million deal back in July (Sky Sports).

The price-tag definitely raised a few eyebrows as nobody really expected Richarlison to be a first-choice starter at Tottenham. He seems to have proved a lot of people wrong now.

The 25-year-old has started each of Tottenham’s last three games in all competitions ahead of Dejan Kulusevski. He has fared well too, scoring twice – both against Marseille in the Champions League last week.

Although an argument can be made that Kulusevski deserves to start after watching his performances off the bench recently, the report has revealed why Conte is persisting with Richarlison.

It has been claimed that the Brazilian has really impressed Conte and all of his Spurs teammates. His incredible work ethic and the way he goes about things from the first whistle to the last is apparently something that ‘resonates’ with the Tottenham boss.

TBR View:

The one thing that Spurs fans were guaranteed to get from Richarlison when they signed him was his incredible work ethic. The Brazilian doesn’t stop running and is up there with the hardest-working players in the country.

Conte has always demanded that from every single one of his players, and to see Richarlison work that way every day in training as well as in games must be really pleasing.

That’s probably why the Brazilian has been preferred to Kulusevski, even though the Swede is a truly incredible player in his own right.

With Richarlison performing really well and Kulusevski blowing everyone away with his cameos off the bench, it will be interesting to see who will get the nod against Leicester tomorrow.
