Pape Matar Sarr has been quizzed about his Tottenham Hotspur teammates, and when asked who is the funniest member of the squad, he picked Richarlison – who he described as ‘crazy’ – as the joker of the pack.
Things are going pretty well for Tottenham right now, with new manager Ange Postecoglou coming in this summer and transforming the club. The Australian’s brand of attacking football has been adopted by the players very quickly, and the fans are loving it.
Results haven’t been bad either. Spurs are now unbeaten in the first nine league games, with seven wins and two draws, and are currently sitting two points clear at the top of the Premier League table.
Players like Heung-min Son and James Maddison are taking the majority of plaudits, with the pair combining for the key goals that have propelled Spurs to the top. But it’s not just goals that are important.
Richarlison is the funniest Spurs player
One player who will probably be happy to hear that is Richarlison, who is still struggling to find the back of the net regularly for Spurs. But, he does come out on top in one area – according to Pape Matar Sarr, the Brazil striker is the funniest of all his teammates.
When asked by Fubo TV who the funniest player in the Spurs squad is, Sarr said: “Richarlison. He’s crazy.”

Given his pigeon-inspired goal celebration, incendiary showboating, and his regular ribbing of teammates (and rivals) on social media, it should come as no surprise that Sarr has picked Richarlison for this particular accolade.

I’m going to keep defending Richarlison for as long as he keeps playing with the heart and energy as he did against Fulham on Monday night.
I thought he was absolutely fantastic, the way he chased down every ball, and he was rewarded with a fine assist, too. And yes, he is a very funny guy, too.
