TOTTENHAM star Richarlison has opened up about his struggles of learning how to drive.
The attacker is set to fly to Qatar for the World Cup as he has a place on Brazil’s plane but Richarlison can’t take his seat behind the wheel of a car as he doesn’t have a driving licence.Richarlison does not have a driving licence after finding passing his theory test tough[/caption]
The 25-year-old is learning but is finding the theory test tough to pass especially with his English skills.
Richarlison said to Ronaldo TV: “I like to take car lessons. I’m trying to get my license here. I’m taking driving school.
“I failed my first one [theory test]. There are 900 questions to study, I studied 200 and I was going to have to take a holiday.
“Then I said ‘let me take this test soon, it will work’. I did and almost passed. I got 36, you have to get 42 out of 56. The second [test attempt] will be when I finish studying, it’s all in English.”

Despite his wealth the former Everton man is happy getting the train for now and even visited his former teammate Allan travelling from London to Liverpool using public transport.
On getting the train he said: “I feel like a normal person.
“I went to Liverpool to visit Allan. By train it’s faster, I can’t do it by car, it’s four hours.
“People think that because I’m a player I can’t take a train, I think it’s super normal, I feel like a free person.”

But he enters the tournament in inconsistent form having not scored for Spurs in the Premier League since his summer transfer – he has netted two in the Champions League though.
Tottenham travel to Brentford on Boxing Day when the Premier League returns – maybe he will make the trip across London on the tube.
