Neymar made a very special appearance on Everton’s social media to deliver the Player of the Season Award to compatriot, Richarlison.
Brazilian Richarlison has been one of Neymar’s good friends in the national team. The PSG star just made a special appearance to honor his good friend with the Player of the Season Award given by the Toffees every year.
Richarlison scored 15 goals in all competitions last season at 23 years of age, which is an important number for any Everton player. The star was very overwhelmed by the surprise and Neymar had a message for him on a video that Everton published on Twitter.
“Hey Richarlison, I am so happy for you, congratulations on your season,” Neymar said in a video published on Everton’s official Twitter feed.
“Here it is, your Player of the Season award for Everton. Congratulations on this achievement, I know you’re the first Brazilian [to win this award].
“I’m very happy for you. I hope you keep on scoring goals, helping your club, your team-mates and you know that I am always wishing you the best. All the best, congratulations, here’s your trophy. It’s a great pleasure for me to give it to you.”
Richarlison feels honored by the award.
The Everton striker was beaming with excitement and wrote the following on Twitter: “Today is a very special day for me. Receiving the best player of the season award, playing by one of the most traditional clubs in Europe, and from the hands of a guy who is my childhood idol, but who also became a teammate and a friend that the football gave me is kinda surreal.
“Thanks, Everton! Thank you, fans! And thanks for the surprise and the message, Neymar. I haven’t the words to thank you for all affection.”
