Richarlison: Anything is possible with Carlo Ancelotti at Everton

Richarlison has high hopes

Carlo Ancelotti took up the reins at Everton back in December, after Marco Silva was sacked.

The Italian’s appointment came as something of a surprise at the time, given how successful he has been around Europe.

Ancelotti has taken charge of countless tops sides over the years, winning a plethora of trophies, including the Premier League, Champions League, Serie A and the Bundesliga.

So, managing a mid-table Everton team did seem like something of a step down for Ancelotti.

However, with the former Chelsea boss now at the helm, Everton forward Richarlison is extremely excited about where the club can go.

Speaking in an interview with the Toffees’ official website, the Brazilian expressed the opinion that, under Ancelotti, ‘anything is possible’, including securing a place in European competition:

“When a club bets on a coach like him, it thinks about reaching a prominent position.

“The players need to think like that, too.

“Anything is possible.

“A club that thinks big, as is the case with Everton, which has so many fans around the world and such a beautiful history in football, can reach higher positions.

“We can grow quickly, aim to reach European competitions and, in some time, fight for the top.

“I want to make history with Everton’s shirt. It is a source of great pride and honour to be able to wear this shirt.

“I want to be important here, score goals, cheer the fans and show that our team can reach even higher.”

Everton vs Bournemouth

Despite all of Richarlison’s optimism, though, it’s worth pointing out that the Toffees haven’t exactly looked like world-beaters under Ancelotti.

Yes, he has only been in charge for around six months, and is yet to dip into the summer transfer market.

But if the Premier League had started from the gameweek in which Ancelotti returned, Everton would be 10th, not exactly an impressive feat.

Everton’s final game of the campaign will see them face off with Bournemouth at Goodison Park, with 11th the highest position in which the Merseysiders can now hope to finish the season.
