Richarlison Can Be One Of The Best Strikers In Europe – Ancelotti

Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti has predicted a path to stardom for Richarlison, who will aim to continue his three-match scoring streak for the Toffees on Thursday at West Brom.
Ancelotti has worked with many of Europe’s best players over the course of his coaching career and believes that the Brazilian is capable of reaching the very top of the game.

The Italian is convinced that, should the Merseyside club qualify for the Champions League, the former Watford star will progress even further.

“Richarlison is a modern striker, a complete striker, because he works really hard,” Ancelotti told reporters. “His physical statistics are really high, like a midfielder – but he has speed and he is really clinical in the box.

“He is fantastic with the head and clinical in front of the goalkeeper and his movement without the ball is really good.

“I think he can be one of the top strikers in Europe. I’m sure he can because he has all these kind of qualities and he doesn’t have a specific position on the pitch. He is really complete.

“Where he has to improve is with his technical ability, and he can improve with controlling the ball and this and that but his movement without the ball is really top and his positioning in the box is of a high standard. His level will go up in the Champions League [if we qualify]. It would be a fantastic experience.”
