‘I hope to make history here’ – Richarlison aiming high after Tottenham move


Richarlison has revealed he is hoping to make history with Tottenham and relishing the opportunity to play Champions League football under Antonio Conte.

The Brazilian is the fourth player for Spurs in the transfer window earlier this week when he arrived from Everton on a reported £ 60million deal.

The striker played a key role in removing the Toffees away from relegation from the Premier League last season, scoring six times in their last nine games under Frank Lampard.

Richarlison, who previously played for Watford in England’s senior division, is delighted to be working with his new team to play in the Champions League this season.

And he can’t wait to fulfill his dream of appearing in Europe’s best club competition.

“I remember when I was in Brazil and the gift came from Tottenham, I couldn’t believe it. And after signing a contract, even more so,” he told the club’s official website.

“When I first arrived here, I was thrilled to see my new colleagues and a new home.

“Now, it’s about working with the great coach I have, and my great colleagues too. I hope I’ll make history here in this shirt.

“I always said it was my dream to play in the UEFA Champions League, now this dream is coming true. Let’s see what happens.

“All the players dream of playing in such a big tournament, so I think when the time comes, I’ll be worried.”

It has now been 14 years since Tottenham were recently released from silver, with Juande Ramos leading them in honor of the 2008 League Cup.

But Richarlison is confident the team is proud of the details needed to end the wait this season.

“Antonio Conte puts together a great team that will be able to compete in all competitions,” he added.

“The coach will prepare us very well for this because there are so many competitions, now we have to focus more.

“So, I think we have everything to make a big tournament, and in the end, we have everything to lift the trophy.”
