World Cup Neville reacts to Richarlison being picked over Jesus in Brazil attack. The legendary Gary Neville of Manchester United has lavished praise on Richarlison of Tottenham Hotspur.
He believes that Richarlison is genuinely a unique player in world football.
In the summer transfer window, the Brazilian moved to Antonio Conte’s team from Everton for a large €58 million cost.
Despite participating in 10 Premier League games for the club this season and only collecting two assists, the Brazilian attacker has had trouble making an impression.
Coach Tite chose him despite his lack of goals for Tottenham to be the focal point of the Brazilian offense.
And Richarlison produced two goals—a spectacular brace that included a mind-blowing scissor kick—against Serbia.
The striker’s second-half acrobatic goal against Serbia fascinated Neville, who believed that the Tottenham player was more suited for international football than club football.
“In England, we are so used to Jesus,” Neville said to HITC. You will then witness this from Richardson once we choose Jesus. He has performed superbly for Brazil.
“Jesus participated in the last tournament, and the coach carried over the fact that he didn’t score in those five games. World-class [against Serbia] performance.
