Richarlison: “I wasn’t a mutiny leader against Conte, it was quite the opposite


Richarlison of Tottenham has attempted to put an end to rumors about his involvement in Antonio Conte’s exit from the team, adamant that he was not the “mutiny leader.”

Following an extraordinary outburst in which he criticized his own “selfish players” in the wake of a 3-3 draw at Southampton, Conte left Tottenham on Sunday by mutual agreement.

Richarlison, who suffered an injury in the intense match at St. Mary’s, was later charged with issuing an ultimatum to Tottenham along with club colleague Cristian Romero regarding the future of Conte. On Thursday, the Brazil international, however, denied these accusations.

Richarlison wrote on Twitter:

“Questioning and criticizing me as a player for my performance is part of football, and I received it. “However, I don’t tolerate you telling lies about me! I’ve always respected all of my teachers, including Conte. He was a big assistance to me when I joined the Spurs, and he can attest to the fact that we always resolved disputes amicably and professionally, even when they involved the public.

“I wasn’t a mutiny leader against him, it was quite the opposite. And I apologize for not meeting his expectations of me and for not having done enough to earn his continued loyalty. I sent him a message after he left to thank him for everything and to wish him the best because he merits it. The journalist who perpetrated this horrible falsehood, on the other hand, did not even attempt to do the bare minimum, which would have been to contact my PR or pay attention to me. a bad character and a bad worker! And shame on you, TyC Sports!”

Due to a slight muscle injury, Richarlison will miss Tottenham’s first game under new coach Conte as well as his return to Everton. On Monday night, the game is played at Goodison Park.
