“When a player plays against your team and you don’t like him from the outside then you question his character because he’s done something well against your team. Richarlison falls into that category and he’s one of those players. Whenever I watch him, I think how much I’d love to have him in my side. He runs tirelessly and chases things down. He can play up front on his own or play anywhere across the three.
Obviously, you have Harry Kane and Son who will want to play every minute of every game and there is Kulusevski who has come in and done brilliantly. So he’s going to have to fit in and prove to Antonio that he is worthy of a regular spot.
If you want to challenge for a Champions League spot you need a squad and someone will have to sit on the bench and have the right attitude when they come on. So I think he’s a really, really good signing.
