“This player creates a lot of problems” – Matt Doherty on Tottenham’s forward


Richarlison was Fabio Paratici’s top transfer target. On Friday, the club officially announced the signing of the striker on a five-year contract for £60 million, including various bonuses.

Tottenham right-back Matt Doherty commented on the signing of the star Brazilian:

“One match that comes to mind was the FA Cup game where he ran a lot and caused us a lot of problems, and that was probably the main reason they beat us in that game and got through.”

In fact, the 25-year-old forward made a big impression at the time and delivered phenomenal performance, with four shots, three assists in addition to two goals.

The Irishman also pointed out the versatility of the Brazilian:

“He’s versatile and that means a lot – he can pop up in any position, he’s calm, he keeps the ball well and knows how to find the back of the net”.
