Everton forward Richarlison has said that boss Marco Silva is like a father-figure to him, and is helping with English lessons as well as football.
The Brazilian international was speaking while away on his second international call-up after joining Everton and said that Silva has helped him a lot.
“Marco Silva has helped me a lot,” explained Richarlison.
“He’s 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, it helps me a lot on the pitch and not only from a tactical point of view.
“Like a father”
“I see Marco as a father, 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.”
