Tottenham told ‘petulant’ Richarlison claim as Conte point made

Antonio Conte has lost his ‘cool’ to Richarlison since moving to Tottenham, according to Noel Whelan.

specifically for Football InsiderThe former Leeds United and Coventry striker insists Richarlison ‘looks like a very good signing’ for Tottenham.

The 25-year-old entered Conte’s starting line-up after coming off the bench.

He scored the club’s first two goals on their Champions League debut last week (September 7) when Tottenham beat Marseille 2-0.

In the Premier League, Richarlison made 5 appearances in 157 minutes of football, with 2 assists.

“When you have enough talent to play as a nine on the wing or in the middle, you give yourself more options.” Whelan said Football Insider Journalist Ewan Kingsbury.

“We know they have a great top three already, but signing him, knowing you’re in the Champions League, knowing you want to play domestically in the Premier League and the Cup, it looks like a very good signing.

“£60m sounds like a very good signing from Tottenham. He’s a very good player.

“The only criticism is the way he plays the game sometimes. He’s a big, strong lad who can come across as a bit grumpy at times.

“But it looks like Conte is making the most of his role. He looks like he needs a strong manager to get the best out of him.

Richarlison joined Tottenham from Everton this summer in a deal that could be worth £60m.

He missed his first game of the season and was suspended last season for throwing flares at Everton players.
