On Tuesday, Richarlison officially became an Everton player after the Premier League side paid £50 million for his services, but the Brazilian didn’t forget to thank the Hornets for a memorable season with a heartfelt Instagram post.

The young Brazilian arrived in England from Fluminese in 2017 and made quite the impact in his first Premier League season.

With five goals and four assists, the left winger undoubtedly was a hit with the Hornets and he stressed on the fond memories he carries with him to his new club in his farewell post:

Foi só por uma temporada, mas a gratidão será eterna. Só tenho a agradecer pelo carinho que recebi desde o primeiro dia no Watford. Torcida, dirigentes, treinadores, companheiros, funcionários. Obrigado por me ajudarem a crescer como jogador, como homem e por me permitirem trazer alegria a vocês. Muito obrigado, Hornets!! 🐝❤ It has been only for one season, but I will be glad forever. I just have to thank you for the all kindness since my first day at Watford. Fans, direction, managers, teammates… everyone! Thank you for helping me to be a better player and man, and for letting me bring some joy to you all! Thank you again and again, Hornets! 🐝❤#watfordfc #premierleague #brazil #football #nike #velascosg

The Toffees are expected to really challenge the established elite in the Premier League this season, especially with the vaunted Silva at the helm.

So far, their pre-season has been quite lacklustre for they are yet to find a win after having played two games.
