Frank Lampard reveals how Richarlison left Everton for Tottenham Hotspur this summer

Tottenham Hotspur signed Richarlison from Everton for a fee in the region of £60million with add-ons this summer in what has proven to be one of the signings of the season.

The 25-year-old striker made his name with the Toffees after moving to Goodison Park from Watford in the summer of 2017. He managed to score 53 times and assist 14 more goals for Everton during his 152 appearances for the club across competitions.

A four-year stay on Merseyside came to an end under Frank Lampard’s reign as Everton manager. The Toffees sold Richy to Spurs, and the former Chelsea boss has given his verdict on how Richarlison left the club.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference ahead of the Premier League game against Spurs (h/t Liverpool Echo), he said that the attacker left Everton in a cordial and dignified manner.

“He is a good lad and we will wish him well. He left with dignity and his head held high. Nothing more than that.”

Richarlison stated that Everton had a ‘lack of ambition’ after he moved to Spurs. Nevertheless, Lampard seems to be all praise for the Brazil international who is expected to travel to the FIFA World Cup with his country in November.

Lampard added that it isn’t a surprise that Richarlison is doing well for club and country this season. He has scored twice and assisted three times in 12 games for his new club.

“I’m not surprised and I’m not sure why the rest of the world is surprised. He is very talented. He was always Brazil’s No.9 when he was here. He is well-respected in the football world. We know him very well but his style is very unpredictable.”

It remains to be seen if manager Antonio Conte hands Richarlison a start against his former club, or if he plays Dejan Kulusevski with Son Heung-min and Harry Kane.

The Sweden international is perhaps better suited to start the game from the bench as he is just on his way back from an injury. The former Inter Milan manager is hopeful that he will be involved in the league game on Saturday at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
