TalkSPORT pundit believes Everton have been a bit of an enigma

TalkSPORT pundit Tony Cascarino believes Everton have been an enigma this term with their inconsistent form. The Toffees recently secured a comfortable 2-0 triumph in the top-flight but before that, they were on the losing side in the FA Cup fourth round after Millwall secured a 3-2 triumph over them.

In a report covered by TalkSPORT, Cascarino highlighted that the Toffees have lacked the leadership in their ranks barring Seamus Coleman and this has hampered them despite the likes of Gylfi Sigurdsson and Richarlison impressing in the attack front, he said: “Everton have been a bit of an enigma. Watching them last week at Millwall I thought they were disappointing. You talk about leadership in the team, they didn’t look like they had any of that apart from Seamus Coleman. I just don’t know why Everton have not been better because they’ve got some – Richarlison is a handful. Sigurdsson is another player who can create a moment – just haven’t done it enough.”

Amidst this, he has already become a regular with the Brazilian national team and speaking to the club’s official website, Yakubu has backed the young marksman to reach to the top, the loved Nigerian said: “Richarlison is smart and clever. I have watched him since he was at Watford. If he continues to do what he is doing, you will see the improvement. He is going to be a top striker. I think he can be right up there in the goal scoring charts.”

Richarlison admits he nearly gave up on becoming a professional footballer

Everton’s summer signing Richarlison has admitted that he nearly gave up on the dream of becoming a professional career. In an interview with AS, the Toffees frontman discussed the hardships faced during the initial stages of his career and admitted that he would have not made to the big stage, had he failed with his ultimate trial with America Mineiro.

Speaking to the Spanish publication, he said: “I haven’t got enough fingers to count the number of clubs who rejected me. I was ready to give up football, but I lifted my head and I went to Belo Horizonte with just the money for an outward ticket for the last trial I had, with America MG. If I didn’t make it, I had no money to get home to Espiritu Santo, 600 kilometres away. I gave my all that morning and I passed. If I had given up after the first no I would never have made it where I am today.”

Sam Allardyce warns Marco Silva over Richarlison deal

Sam Allardyce has warned Marco Silva over his decision to push through a summer deal for Watford winger Richarlison. The Brazilian struggled during the second half of the previous season where he failed to contribute a goal or assist and Allardyce believes Silva could face the wrath of the supporters, should the forward fail to an impact from the off.

Speaking to TalkSPORT, he said: “Everybody’s seen the drop off since Mario Silva (sic) left Watford, or maybe even before then. I think that he has seen him first-hand and worked with him on a daily basis so he is backing his own judgement. What I would say to be careful about though is, if you say you are buying potential, Everton fans do not want potential. If you’re buying Richarlison now as a future player, that’s not what Everton fans want to see at the moment. They want to see them fighting with the best and up there with the top four.”
