Richarlison Injured in Tears 4 Mins into Tottenham vs. Southampton as Poor Season Continues

Tottenham’s Richarlison was forced to leave the pitch in tears just four minutes into the team’s match against Southampton at St Mary’s due to an injury. The Brazilian forward, who was making just his ninth Premier League start for Spurs following his £60million switch from Everton last summer, was replaced by Dejan Kulusevski. Richarlison is yet to score a league goal for Tottenham and recently expressed his frustration with his lack of minutes and Antonio Conte’s communication. However, he performed well in Tottenham’s recent match against Nottingham Forest, making an assist, winning a penalty, and having a goal of his own disallowed for a very narrow offside in the 3-1 win.

Despite his struggles this season, Richarlison was selected to start Saturday afternoon’s match against Southampton but was unfortunately forced to leave the pitch early due to injury. Stand-in skipper Harry Kane tried to console Richarlison as he went off, while Son Heung-min put a supportive arm around his team-mate. The forward eventually returned to the stands and was seen sitting with his team-mates on the bench around 20 minutes after going off.

Richarlison has endured an injury-hit campaign at Tottenham, having suffered a calf injury that ruled him out of four Premier League games in October. He also picked up a hamstring injury at the World Cup that he didn’t return from until mid-January. Richarlison’s only two goals to date for Tottenham both came in their 2-0 Champions League win over Marseille in September, a moment he shared with his father and cried tears of joy.

Tottenham suffered another injury blow during the match when Ivan Perisic had to replace the stricken Ben Davies on 36 minutes. Despite these setbacks, Tottenham managed to secure a 2-1 victory over Southampton thanks to goals from Harry Kane and Son Heung-min.

Overall, it has been a challenging season for Richarlison and Tottenham, with the team being knocked out of the Champions League by AC Milan and currently sitting in sixth place in the Premier League table. However, with Richarlison’s talent and determination, there is no doubt that he will continue to work hard and strive for success both individually and as part of the Tottenham team.
