Antonio Conte has ruthlessly gone in on Richarlison after the Brazilian complained about playing time after Champions League exit.
Tottenham was launched out of Europe on Wednesday night after drawing with AC Milan and losing the tie 1-0 on aggregate.
This has now confirmed another season without silverwar for the North London club much to the annoyance of their fans whoo booed them off the pitch.
In his post match interview, Richarlison went on a rant abhout how poor the club has been and moaned about his lack of playing time.
“I’m honest, this season has been shit. I want to play” the Brazilian forward said.
When asked about these comments during his Friday press conference, Conte didn’t hold back and retaliated with his own jarring comments.
Conte: “I watched Richarlison interview, he didn’t criticise me. He said my season is s*** and he’s right”. ⚪️ #THFC
“When you speak of ‘I’ and not ‘us’ you are being selfish — it was a mistake, he apologised”.

“First of all I watched the interview of Richarlison. He didn’t criticise me. He said his season was s**t and he’s right.” the Italian manager said.
“His season has been not good. He had injuries, played and scored in the Champions League and then went to the World Cup and then had a serious injury.
“He’s scored no goals for us. I think he was really honest to say his season was not good. His season has not finished yet. If he deserves to play I’ll give him the opportunity.”
