Ex-Everton boss Silva: Barcelona didn't unsettle Richarlison

Former Everton boss Marco Silva has never doubted the commitment of Richarlison to Goodison Park.

Richarlison was linked with Barcelona during Silva's time in charge of Everton.

"I don't know if it was true or not," he told Football Daily.

"You know the rumours inside of football always [happen] when the market is coming and the clubs are coming for your best players.

"What I know from the time I was in charge of the club was that Richarlison was focused on Everton Football Club in everything and I'm sure he is the same now."

Silva added: "If there are big clubs going for him in the future he will not be striking from Everton because he likes the club, he likes the way everyone welcomed him into the football club."
