Carlo Ancelotti has a special status in the world of football, the players enjoy working with the Italian expert, he has taken many on the right path, and one of those who is infinitely grateful to him is Richarlison. The Brazilian wasn't in the right form from the beginning of the season, and over time, everything started to come into its own.
"It bothered me a little when my only goal in the Premier League was from the penalty spot against Crystal Palace back in September, even though I scored three times in the Carabao Cup matches," Richarlison began the conversation for the club's website.
The Brazilian waited for two and a half months for a new league goal. He broke the black series against Leicester. "I talked to Carlo about it the day before the game with Leicester. He told me to relax and that I would score a goal in the next game and that is exactly what happened.
His word is powerful. " Goals are Richarlison's passion, and Carlo Ancelotti knows how to find the right words and motivate the Brazilian. "Goals are a product of teamwork. When everyone is doing well, we are successful.
Professor Ancelotti told me that goals will come naturally." "As a striker, I strive to constantly score goals and I should be worried about scoring goals, so I think I was right when it bothered me that they were missing."
"At the same time, I was a little unfair to myself. Although I didn't shake the nets, I did my best to help in the defense by running and helping my teammates " Richarlison is convinced that the best period is yet to come.
"More goals will come. I see myself as a leader. I have to be responsible and aware of my importance here at the club. "
Everton went through a crisis, followed by ups and downs, but they have a very good chance to win a place on the European stage.
"We rediscovered the winning formula and returned to the top. We are aware that we need to stay focused. Carlo Ancelotti deals with all the details, we train hard and enter the games strongly." "His arrival was really important for the club.
He is the winner, he gives the players a strong mentality to win matches. We have a very good, young team. We know we have the potential to be at the top and we will definitely get there. " His cousin Ronaldo is his role model.
"Ronaldo is a good example for me. He won numerous trophies, the World Cup, the golden ball, so he is a role model for any player and I want to follow in his footsteps. I want to win everything with Brazil. From the moment I decided I wanted to be a footballer, I wanted to achieve great things. "
