The Brazilian star, Richarlison, said that Real Madrid is the best team in the world. He also spoke about Ancelotti and Vinicius.


“Messi is the best player”

The Everton player, Richarlison de Andrade, acknowledged his deep admiration for Lionel Messi, of whom he has said great words: “Messi is the best player in the world, he is from another planet. I would like to play beside him.” The Brazilian attacker lost a few months ago a Copa America final against Messi’s albiceleste. Richarlison talks about the feelings he had after the final whistle: “After losing the final I cried a lot, I was very hurt; seeing Messi celebrate, I thought he also deserved a title with his team,” added the Everton player.


Los Blancos as the best club in the world

Richarlison also had good words for Real Madrid as an entity, and for one of the Brazilians in the squad: “The best team in the world is Real Madrid. They have Vinicius, who is also in a good moment”. Carlo Ancelotti, the current coach, also managed Richarlison during his time as coach of Everton, and he spoke like this about the Italian: “He’s a great coach and it’s lucky for Madrid to have him.”

Richarlison dealt with more issues in this interview, such as his team’s options for the Qatar World Cup to be held at the end of this year: “Brazil is a favorite to win the World Cup. We were never eliminated in the first round,” he recalled. “We have five”. Despite this, Richarlison believes many other teams are coming in strong and at a good time to clinch the title.


The rivalry with Argentina

Richarlison assures before the microphones that the tough confrontations between Argentina and Brazil are of high voltage, but that all those tensions remain on the field: “They defend the Argentine shirt, we the Brazilian one.”
