Watford attacker Richarlison: Silva convinced me to reject Ajax

Watford attacker Richarlison admits Marco Silva convinced him about moving to Vicarage Road.

The Brazilian was also a top target for Ajax over the summer.

He told the Telegraph: “I had told Ajax that I was going there, but Marco called me saying that he knew my potential.

“Premier League football was my dream – I watched it with my uncle on TV and Cristiano Ronaldo was my hero.

"So I did not think twice when I received the offer."
