Richarlison lashes out Antonio Conte over ‘s**t’ Tottenham role

Tottenham striker Richarlison has called out manager Antonio Conte for handing him a ‘s**t’ role at the club this season.

The Brazil international moved to Spurs from Everton for a fee of £60m in the summer but has started fewer than half of his appearances for the club so far this year.

He was afforded just 20 minutes off the bench in Thursday’s Champions Laegue draw with AC Milan despite Spurs needing a goal to avoid crashing out of the competition.

After the game, Richarlison decided to let the world know about his frustrations.

“It was going well, in a good sequence, two wins against West Ham and Chelsea,” Richarlison told TNT Sports. “Suddenly, he put me on the bench, against Wolverhampton he put me on for five minutes. I asked why, but they didn’t tell me anything.

“And [on Tuesday], they asked me to take a test at the gym, that if I was good I would go to the game and, at the time of the game, they left me on the bench. These are things that it is not possible to understand.

“Let’s see what [Conte] will say [on Thursday], but there are no fools here either, I’m a professional, I work every day and I want to play.”
