Pundit Michael Bridges is blown away by a Tottenham Hotspur player against United

Tottenham Hotspur

Optus Sport pundit Michael Bridges gives his verdict on Tottenham Hotspur star. Bridges was stunned by the performance of Tottenham man Richarlison against Manchester United. He thinks that the Brazilian is back in his form and enjoying his role in the squad. Ange Postecoglou’s men played a 2-2 draw at Old Trafford and came back from behind twice. However, it was Richarlison who impressed the former Leeds star. The 26-year old scored a header from a corner in the 19th minute. He now has six goals in this campaign so far. Besides this, Timo Werner also made his debut for Spurs marking an assist for Bentancur’s goal.

“Yes, he’s back and back with a bang! I think when the club and Ange talked about his off the field issues that he was having to handle with his mental side and what had been going on, I think the club handled that sensationally because now he looks like a player who is looking forward to putting on that Tottenham jersey.

I’m just buzzing for him as a footballer rather than just a Spurs fan, it’s just great to see somebody back at ease with their life and sport.”

Their has been a massive turnaround in the professional life of Richarlison. He was suffering during the last season but now looks confident. Though, he needs to keep his form pinned up. While it is good to see former Everton man back in business, he must also continue to do it. They certainly need him to step up in the absence of Heung Min Son, who is out on national duty for Asian Cup. His contribution can be massive as Tottenham are in a hunt for top four finish.
