“Richarlison should learn from injury-plagued season” – Cristian Stellini

Richarlison injury
Since joining Tottenham from Everton in the summer, Richarlison has struggled, failing to score a single Premier League goal for the club.

A series of muscle injuries have hampered his progress, and he suffered his latest injury just minutes into a 3-3 draw with Southampton last month after feeling discomfort during the warm-up.

Stellini believes that this should serve as a lesson for the 25-year-old to be more forthcoming about his fitness and not try to play through the pain just to impress.

“We have to take care with Richy. To give him training and the right timing to play. To not take risks,” Tottenham’s acting head coach said ahead of Bournemouth’s visit this weekend”.

“He’s not the only one who wants to be on the pitch every time. Every player wants to be on the pitch”.

“Sometimes they hide their condition to try to play, to have one possibility to score, to do something good”.

“But now when you live experience like Richarlison this season, maybe they can grow in their mindset. I hope that Richy understands that we are taking care of him.”
