Richarlison seeking clarification from Everton over summer tournaments

Richarlison is hoping that Everton will release him for both the Copa America and the Tokyo Olympics this summer but may not get his wish.

Despite the fact that he will be 24 when the delayed summer Games come around, the forward will still be eligible to represent Brazil due to special dispensation made by the IOC for athletes born in 1997 and he is keen to take what will be his only chance to compete for a gold medal.

However, as he complained to ESPN Brasil, it doesn’t look as though Everton are going to allow him to go to both 2021 tournaments, although it’s most likely that the club are not keen on him missing the early part of next season by playing in the Olympics.

It appears as though the club will make a decision in due course but Richarlison has made his desires clear.

“This year there’s the Copa America and there’s also the Olympics,” he said. “It seems that the club doesn’t want to let me go, just want to release me to one — I think it’s for the Copa America, I don’t know.

“I was called up, I told them that I want to go to the Copa America and the Olympics, if I’m called.

“Like it or not, I don’t know if I’ll have another opportunity for the Olympics because [of my] age. I want to play, I want to go because I [have] never played an Olympics and we’ll be defending our title. So, I want to go, yes. It will be talked about here inside the club to know what decision will be made.”

Release him?. I’d sell him. His attitude this season has been terrible. Don’t need that type of player.

Let him go to the Olympics, but there has to be a quid quo pro…as much as one is enforcable. Like before he goes he signs a 2 year extension for the same wages

Very poor decision making from the club and very short sighted of them. He wants to continue to achieve things whilst being at Everton, take that away and he is then an unhappy bunny, his form then suffers. You let him go, he is indebted to the club, he is contented, he plays better, his value goes up, we see if we can cope without him. Everyone wins.

“He wants to continue to achieve things whilst being at Everton”

Continue? what has he achieved?

I would sell along with kean at psg. Carlo then has £150 million to spend. Richarlison has not played well this season. Let’s move them both on.

This lad cost us a full value fee, at least. I say that because there’s more than a few other goal-scoring strikers playing for other clubs who despite costing the same or less (the main three across the park for instance) have done way better as scorer/assisters.

The best strikers playing for ordinary teams tend to do way better than scoring one in three, that being Richi’s average for us – and that’s a massive improvement on his Watford average by the way; namely Kane, Aubamayang, Vardy, Ings and, this season, Ollie Watkins.

So, Richi, stop the sulks, improve the stats, make defenders panic and then feel free to walk up to whoever makes the decisions in our weird club and demand a gigantic hike in your current salary or, if all that’s beyond you, a transfer to a trophy winning team in Europe.

Just don’t continue being the Brazilian version of Andy Johnson please.

There’s a good chance the Olympics don’t even happen, so this may very well be a moot point.

Sell him to Barca now and invest all the money in Haaland. If we want to win something we need top player like the dortmund’s one, not talent but lazy and unpredictable players like Richy.

Cristobal – how on earth is Richarlison lazy? Whatever his issues, the guy runs through brick walls every match. Also, Haaland’s going to be the most in-demand player on the planet, so good luck with that plan.
