“As simple as that” PL best player Applaud £90k-A-Week Tottenham player

Michail Antonio says he applauds Richarlison for his recent game-changing performance in Tottenham Hotspur colours.

In recent times, the West Ham United hitman has been criticised for openly mocking Tottenham’sclub-record transfer and how he had more yellow cards than Premier League goals last season.

But Michail Antonio was sure to mention, again, that he has always said that Richarlison is a ‘quality’ player and now ‘I applaud him’ for his stunning efforts over the weekend, as he told The Footballer’s Football Show.

Richarlison came off the bench to score and assist, as Ange Postecoglou’s side scored in the 98th and 100th minute to down a sorry Sheffield United.

It was the latest-ever win in Premier League history and a further sign of how well this Spurs side are doing under their new manager.

Many would have probably expected some sort of struggle once Harry Kane left, but it has been far from it.

Antonio reacts to Richarlison’s latest performance for Tottenham

“You know what, my boy, my boy, Richy, Richarlison,” said Antonio. “Yeah, come off the bench. One assist. One goal.

“I am happy for the boy. I am actually happy for him because, at the end of the day, I said something and everyone is still talking about it, even though it was like six months ago. It was a joke, even though I said it. I said that he is a quality player. I always said he is a quality player.

“But maybe he shouldn’t have taken his top off. I’m not going to take that back.
