Tottenham Hotspurs were knocked out of the Champions League, and Brazilian forward Richarlison was unhappy with Antonio Conte’s decision to bench him.
AC Milan held a 1-0 first-leg advantage, and Spurs could not afford not to score a goal or they would be eliminated. Richarlison, who was signed from Everton last summer, was named on the bench for the clash and came in the second half but could not make an impact in the game.
After the game, the Brazilian forward was far from happy with the decision by manager Antonio Conte not to start him. “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, and 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.
