Tottenham’s ‘eating and running’ unexpected action… Conte embraced the disciple’s mistake
The sudden action of Tottenham striker Richarlison (26), who openly criticized his team’s manager. However, Antonio Conte (54), Tottenham manager, was a big man. He embraced his disciple’s mistake.
On the 11th (Korean time), ESPN of the United States 메이저사이트 conveyed Conte’s thoughts regarding Richarlison’s behavior. Earlier, Richarlison expressed dissatisfaction with the lack of playing time, and criticized Conte’s decision to exclude himself, which became a hot topic. However, Conte showed a protective attitude, saying, “I saw Richarlison’s interview. He didn’t criticize me. Richarlison said his season was not good, and he is right. Richarlison’s season was not good.” .
Conte continued: “Richarlison was injured. After the European Champions League, he participated in the World Cup in Qatar, and he was injured again. Richarlison didn’t score a goal in the Premier League. I think it’s fair to say that his season wasn’t good. “But Richarlison’s season isn’t over. If he deserves it, I’ll give him a chance.”
Brazilian striker Richarlison recorded a transfer fee of 60 million pounds (approximately 95 billion won) last summer and wore a Tottenham uniform. He was expected to compete for a positive starting position, supporting Harry Kane and Son Heung-min. But he fell into a deep slump. He played 17 league games, but scored only two assists without scoring a single goal. He naturally fell behind even in the main competition. He also had bad luck with injuries, and even if he played only one season, considering the high transfer fee, it was close to a failed signing. Some local media even expressed concerns about ‘eating and running’.
But it was an enemy field. Rather, Hisharli Song sniped at his team manager Conte for lack of playing time. “I don’t understand Conte’s decision,” Richarlisson said after Tottenham’s knockout in the round of 16 of the European Champions League. “I’m a professional. I train every day and I want to play. It is. I couldn’t run much, and I was injured,” he complained.
This is definitely an act that should be condemned. The public sniping of the director is clearly an understatement. Even the worst situation can happen that even disintegrates the team’s organizational power. In response to Richarlison’s sudden action, Aston Villa legend Gabriel Agbonlaher also raised his voice, saying, “If it were me, I would kick him out to the youth team right away.”
Coach Conte also pointed out Richarlison’s fault in this part. He criticized the selfish act of thinking only of himself, not the team, as a ‘mistake’. “I tell the players to think of the whole, not the individual, to make something important and lift trophies,” Conte said. “Richarlisson made a mistake and apologized. should be a team,” he pointed out.
However, it was also argued that Tottenham could sell him in a year due to Richarlison’s sudden action. Italian Juventus are said to be interested in signing Richarlison.
