Harry Kane breaks silence on ‘brilliant’ Richarlison’s start to life at Tottenham

Tottenham star Harry Kane has been impressed with the start to life Richarlison has had at Spurs.

Richarlison thought he had scored his first goal for Tottenham against Fulham but instead he got a yellow card for taking off his shirt in celebrating.

The former Everton man has been sensational since moving to N17 and his impact has not gone unnoticed.

He was the architect as Tottenham fought to earn a draw at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea and was again monumental against Nottingham Forest even if his ball juggling antics got him in trouble.

The Champions League campaign is upon us and Richarlison is now expected to build on his bright start with more game time as Spurs go in search of glory in both the Premier League and Europe.

Kane who himself has started the season on form with five goals already says the Brazilian has been sharp and hopes he continues to lift the team.

He told reporters: “He was brilliant, he has been doing great every time he came off the bench. He was ready once he started [a game] to make a real impact, and from start to finish he was fighting for every ball, making good runs and getting chances and unlucky not to score with the offside and one off the post.

”Brilliant to have him and he has to keep doing what he has been doing and help the team as much as possible.

”He has got that mindset where every tackle and every training session he just wants to play football and impress the manager.

“He has definitely been doing that and he has been a great addition to the team, he needs to keep working hard.”

Spurs will take on Marseille in the first game of their Champions League group opener on Wednesday and in the league they are just a point off first place.

Antonio Conte’s team is undefeated in 11 league games and will be hoping that they can take in their league form into Europe.
