Watford summer signing Richarlison has revealed why he feels playing Chelsea this weekend will feel easy.
As per The Sun, Richarlison was on the transfer of radar of the Premier League champions during the transfer window, but he ended up putting pen-to-paper with London rivals Watford in what the tabloid claim to be a £11.2M deal.
Richarlison has enjoyed a brilliant start to life with the Hornets, but faces a tough test this weekend as his side visit Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon. The Brazilian, however, believes that the game will be easy in comparison to some of the things he experienced earlier in his life.
The Telegraph quote Richarlison, who says:
“I remember when I was growing up in Brazil, a guy once pointed a gun at my face because he thought I was a drug dealer trying to steal his distribution point. That was my life. After that, playing Chelsea seems much easier”
His comments are tongue-in-cheek, he’ll know how big of a task lies ahead on Saturday. It’s great to see that these rags-to-riches underdog stories still happen. Hopefully be won’t bring his A-game this weekend, else our back-line will have their work cut-out.
