Richarlison Blasts Tottenham Boss, Antonio Conte



Richarlison Blasts Tottenham Boss, Antonio Conte


Richarlison, the Brazilian footballer, has criticized Tottenham Hotspur coach Antonio Conte for benching him in the Champions League decider against AC Milan and called the 2022-23 season “sh*t.”

Despite high hopes for the Spurs at the start of the campaign, inconsistency has plagued the team, culminating in a 1-0 aggregate defeat to AC Milan, which knocked them out of the European competition.

Richarlison, who was brought on as a substitute for just 20 minutes in the second leg of the match, expressed his confusion at being dropped from a team that was in dire need of inspiration.

In an interview with TNT Sports, Richarlison said, “That’s what I didn’t understand, too (being a substitute). It was going well, in a good sequence, two wins against West Ham and Chelsea. Suddenly, he (Cristian Stellini) put me on the bench, against Wolverhampton he put me on for five minutes. I asked why? They didn’t tell me anything.”

He continued, “And, yesterday, 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.” Richarlison also questioned why he had not been given more playing time this season, particularly in light of his strong performances in recent matches.

“Let’s see what he (Conte) will say tomorrow, but there are no fools here either, I’m a professional, I work every day and I want to play. There are minutes left, time left. This season, excuse the word, it’s been sh*t, because I don’t have minutes, I suffered a little with the injury. But, when I enter the field, I give my life. I came from two games well, I think that’s it, I think I should have played and I don’t have to cry about it,” he said.

Conte has yet to respond to Richarlison’s comments, but the situation highlights the growing frustration within the Tottenham Hotspur camp.

The team has failed to live up to expectations this season, and some players are beginning to question the coach’s decisions. As the campaign progresses, it remains to be seen whether the team can turn things around and salvage something from what has been a disappointing season so far.
