Townsend praises Everton management for response to Richarlison sale

Everton attacker Andros Townsend has praised management for handling the sale of Richarlison to Tottenham.

He highlighted the arrivals of Neal Maupay and Amadou Onana and says the club have ‘done well’ off the back of Richarlison ‘s exit.

“Any club would miss the quality of Richarlison and what he brings to the team but I think we’ve been able to add four or five players for the price of Richarlison,” he said on talkSPORT. “We’ve added players with the quality and mentality of Richarlison.

“You see him playing for Spurs chasing for every ball and getting the crowd up for it and I think we have that in Neal Maupay and Onana in midfield. We’ve added more bodies that we needed, and more bodies that we didn’t have last season. Yes, we would love Richarlison, but we have done well off the back of that, and he’s scoring in the Champions League, so it’s been a good deal for both parties.”
