Richarlison pens farewell message to angry Everton fans after completing his move to Tottenham


New Tottenham signing Richarlison has posted an emotional farewell to angry Everton on social media after completing his £60million move to the London club.

The Brazilian, who joined Everton for £30m from Watford back in 2018, ended his association with the club and joined Antonio Conte’s side on a five-year contract.

In his four years at the Merseyside club, he made 152 appearances and scored 53 goals, becoming a fans’ favourite during his spell at the club.

His goals last season were a major part of the reason Frank Lampard’s survived relegation as he scored 11 goals and added a further five assists in 33 outings. Six of those goals came in Everton’s last nine games of the season as they finished 16th and four points above the relegation zone. 

After sealing his move to Spurs, Richarlison took to social media to post a thank-you message to Everton supporters and to the club that helped him grow as a person.

He wrote: 

“It’s very difficult to say goodbye to a place that has become my home; of fans who welcomed me not just as another player, but as if I were one of them, in the stands; and a club that treated me kindly and helped me develop my sense of community and empathy.

“No words, and not all the love I have for this club is enough to thank you. We’ll see you along the way.

“I love you Evertonians.”

Richarlison becomes Antonio Conte’s fourth summer signing after already landing the likes of Ivan Perisic, Fraser Forster and Yves Bissouma.
