the ‘Richallisong scandal’ occurred in Tottenham of the English Premier League (EPL).
After the match against AC Milan in the second leg of 안전놀이터 the UEFA Champions League (UCL) round of 16, Richarlison said, “I want to play more. But Antonio Conte put me on the bench again. They said it was a selection. But again, it was a bench. It’s really incomprehensible. I’m not an idiot.”
The remark caused controversy, and Conte said, “Richarlison didn’t criticize me”, but “Richarlison made mistakes. It’s selfish to talk about me and not us. I always tell the players He emphasized that we should talk about us, not me, to win the championship. If you don’t do that, you are only thinking about yourself.”
Still, “Richallison made a mistake and apologized. It was cleaned up inside the team. This situation can have a positive effect on the team. The team can improve. We need to become a more one team, especially in negative moments. We can show a more positive spirit. It was an opportunity to confirm the team spirit once again,” he predicted, using this opportunity to unite more tightly.
Conte’s prediction came true. The Richarlison scandal ended with a happy ending.
Tottenham won 3-1 in the 27th round of the EPL in the 2022-23 season against Nottingham, which took place at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England on the morning of the 12th (Korean time). Harry Kane scored consecutive goals in the 19th and 33rd minutes of the first half, and Son Heung-min reported a key goal in the second half.
The biggest change in this match was the start of Richarlison. When Richarlison recently started, he came in instead of Son Heung-min, but this day he came in instead of Dejan Kulusevski. He played until the 39th minute of the second half. There was no attack point, but the reckless movement was impressive.
It was a good use of the selection opportunity obtained after the interview scandal. In response, Britain’s ‘BBC’ said, “Coach Conte made three changes compared to the match against AC Milan, and the most noteworthy among them was Richarlison. The goal was missed, but he showed a lot of great performances.” He also gave it a high rating of 6.95.
This match could be a big turning point for Richarlison. He ended the controversy he caused with performance and results. In addition, Kane-Son Heung-min and the attack combination also received a passing score. Son Heung-min’s third goal was also assisted by Richarlison. Son Heung-min warmly hugged Richarlison after scoring the goal. This is a scene that announces a happy ending.
