His 2020/21 season has only just concluded thanks to his country’s appearance at the Copa America and Olympic Games, but Brazil and Everton star, Richarlison, won’t be getting any rest just yet.
After one day off, according to the Liverpool ECHO, he was back in training with the Toffees, however, Everton manager, Rafael Benitez, has a plan for the striker which should see him in good stead for the rest of the 2021/22 Premier League campaign.
Despite coming off the back of an 11-month season, it appears that Richarlison’s fitness hasn’t suffered too much, giving the Spaniard an idea of how to make the most of the international break.
After firing one of their goals in the win over Southampton, it’s expected he’ll still feature in the next three matches against Leeds, Huddersfield and Burnley.
However, according to the Liverpool ECHO, Benitez believes that Brazil will be giving him time off from their World Cup qualifiers against Chile, Argentina and Peru.
That would mean a full two-week rest in September, and the opportunity to recharge the batteries.
