THE Angelos Postecoglou left in the summer from Celtic in order to take the next big step in his career. He officially took over Tottenham with the aim of leading it to the successes that none of its predecessors could.
In London he met a footballer who had learned to live with doubt and went so far as to ask psychological support. In a short space of time it has transformed him Richarlison into an absolute star player of the team and seems to be vindicated for his choice not to proceed with some costly move in order to replace Harry Kane.
The Brazilian striker offers the maximum in the attacking game of the Greek-Australian coach, he presses relentlessly and constantly improves his numbers.
Last year was disastrous for the 26-year-old striker, since in his first season after his transfer from Everton at Tottenham, he sank into mediocrity and immediately lost his place in the starting line-up. Getting it from the “candies” cost 58 million euros and the three goals he scored in 35 games last year fell short of expectations.
His presence Postecoglou on the bench has completely regenerated him Brazilian and it has made him believe in himself again. This fact is perfectly reflected in the image he presents on the playing field but also in the statistical display of what he offers to the team Tottenham.
His absence Sonwhere he followed the mission of his national team in the Asian Cup, gave space to Richarlison, who plays at the top of the attack and has seven goals in the last as many matches. The comparison with just two goals in his previous 39 matches perfectly confirms the renaissance of the Brazilian who has become a catalyst in Tottenham’s bid for Premier League success.
