Watford striker Richarlison admits English football’s Brazilian contingent has helped him settle so quickly.
Richarlison has impressed at Watford since moving from Brazilian side Fluminense in the summer, scoring five goals in 24 appearances.
He credits his family with helping him to settle in England, as well as some famous friends.
Richarlison said: “I’ve brought friends over from Brazil. Here I’ve befriended people like Philippe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino and Gabriel Jesus.
“We all socialise and go out together and they have been very helpful.”
He added: “Growing up watching the Premier League, the person with the most presence was Gilberto Silva.
“He was everywhere in Brazil. His matches were always televised. He was the main figure I was following in the Premier League.”
