Garth Crooks has criticized Tottenham Hotspur striker Richarlison for his performances so far this season.
That’s what the former Tottenham Hotspur player said BBC Sports that Richarlison plays like he has lead boots on.
Crooks commented on the Brazil international who earns £175,000 a week (SalarySport) while discussing the impressive performances of Tottenham and England international James Maddison.
Maddison joined Tottenham from Leicester City in the summer transfer window and has integrated seamlessly into the north London club’s squad.
Criticism for Tottenham Hotspur striker Richarlison
As for Richarlison, the Brazil international has been struggling a lot this season.
Just like last season.
The 26-year-old has made three Premier League appearances for Tottenham this season.
The Tottenham No. 9 didn’t score or give an assist.
Crooks said: “Harry Kane is no longer playing for Tottenham but it doesn’t seem to have slowed their development.”
“Eric Dier is nowhere to be seen and Richarlison looks like he will play in leadership boots but with the arrival of new manager Ange Postecoglou and Maddison in particular, Spurs are starting to look like a team and not a one-man show.”
Richarlison was a real disappointment for Tottenham but hope is eternal.
Maybe it will click for the Brazilian at some point.
What Richarlison needs is a gate or two, and maybe then the floodgates will open.
The 26-year-old is a very good striker.
After all, you don’t deserve 44 caps for Brazil if you’re not a good player.
Richarlison has made 203 Premier League appearances in his career so far.
The forward has scored 49 goals and provided 19 assists in those games.
