Antonio Conte reveals why he signed Richarlison

Richarlison made his Spurs debut in the pre-season last night.

The Brazilian winger started against a K-League XI and played 77 minutes as Spurs secured a 6-3 win against the South Korean side.

The £60million move for the former Everton man seems to be quite fruitful for Conte as he made his mark on the front-line last night.

Antonio Conte believes the Brazilian has the ability to play in all three forward positions.

“Today I’ve seen a lot of positive things about Richy,” Conte said after the match.

“The first half he played like a number nine and the second half he played on the right, behind the striker. I think he can play in all these three positions.

“I think he is strong physically and a good personality, good character, good quality. For sure also for Richy in this period he is working and we are working on the tactical aspects with him because he has to go into our idea. At the same time we have to work on the physical aspects for him to be fit.

“But for sure he is a player that gives me important positions up front. He’s a player that is a good player, strong and very good to protect the ball and attack the space. Also he made a good assist, I’m very happy that we signed him.”
