Everton’s Richarlison details relationship with father figure Marco Silva

The match made in heaven at Everton

Everton forward Richarlison has detailed his relationship with Goodison Park boss Marco Silva after playing for him at two clubs in the Premier League.

The Brazilian was signed by Silva during his time at Watford and it was certainly a great investment.

Richarlison started that season in stunning form but when Marco Silva was sacked after an approach from Everton derailed Watford, his form dropped drastically.

Fast forward to the summer and while it looked an impossible deal to complete due to tensions between Everton and Watford, Silva got his man.

Now, it’s looking as though his investment may be worth it yet again.

“I see Marco as a father”

That is because the Brazilian is impressing again under Silva.

He has started the season in fine form, despite a rocky start from the club as a whole.

Now, he’s claimed that he sees the Toffees boss as a father and it helps on the pitch.

“I see Marco as a father,” he explained, as quoted by the Daily Mirror. 

“He came to Brazil to bring me to England and to help me realise the dream of playing in the Premier League.

“He convinced me to have three English lessons a week and I really want to learn quickly because it will be important for the rest of my career.

“Marco is a very organised coach, who demands a lot of his players. He’s always on the training pitch to show us how to do things.

“When I need some additional explanation I go to his office and we talk.

“That helps me a lot on the pitch and not only from a tactical point of view.”
