Everton striker Richarlison says manager Rafa Benitez can count on his commitment.

Richarlison says he is grateful to Benitez for allowing him to help Brazil win the gold medal at this summer's Tokyo Olympics.

He said, "I told him he can count on me because I'm totally focused. That was what happened because I came back and scored goals and made assists.

"Everton are the English club that believed in me along with Watford. That's why I'm so dedicated to the sweater. Everton paid a lot of money to buy me.

"They bet and believed in me and I have to pay back for it on the pitch. That is what I have done and hope to continue."
