Interim coach Ryan Mason was outraged by the criticism towards Richarlison.
Tottenham Hotspur will face스포츠토토 off against Brentford in the 37th round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England on the 20th at 8:30 pm (Korean time). Tottenham are 7th with 57 points, while Brentford are 9th with 53 points.
Interim coach Mason, who attended the pre-game press conference, had a job to defend Richarlison. Richarlison is an offensive resource that Tottenham ambitiously recruited last summer. However, the recruitment of Richarlison is close to failure at this point. Richarlison has only scored 3 goals and 4 assists in 33 appearances in all competitions this season. Among them, he scored only one league goal.
Richarlison scored his first goal in eight months in the last match against Liverpool. In a 0-3 situation, Tottenham made a theatrical game by scoring goals from Harry Kane and Son Heung-min, followed by Richarlison’s goal. At the time, Richarlison couldn’t control his emotions. He performed a top-dressing ceremony. He deservedly got a yellow card. However, Tottenham immediately lost to Jota and lost 3-4.
The incident was ridiculed by West Ham United striker Michael Antonio and Newcastle United’s Callum Wilson. The two appeared on ‘Football Podcast’ on the 5th. “He’s scored four goals this season. He’s been offside three times,” said Antonio. Wilson burst out laughing, saying, “I received four yellow cards.”
In response to the comments, interim coach Mason defended Richarlison. “Maybe Richarlison may have heard those remarks, or he may have seen them,” he said at a pre-press conference ahead of the match against Brentford. He continued, “We are all trying to do our best, we are all pros. We give our lives to reach and compete at this level. Personally, I don’t like that very much.”
He went on to hit the hisharli song. Interim manager Mason said: “From Richarlison’s point of view, he signed with the club on a record deal, so I know the feeling of wanting to give back. He raised his thumb, saying, “I train hard.
Finally, “I’ve never seen anyone shirk responsibility. He would have wanted more goals. He’s had quite a few injuries this year. I felt he was chasing his fitness. A few shots hit the post. It may have created some motivation.”
