Richarlison launched a mini attack on his manager following Tottenham’s exit from the Champions League.
The Brazilian slammed Conte for his dishonesty towards him and was clearly angry at his lack of game time.
The 53-year-old has now had his chance to respond to the interview and here’s what he said...
Conte: “He said his season was s**t and he’s right”
Comte believes that Richarlison was not criticising him and was just being honest about his own season.
The Brazilian spoke about how the season has not been good for him and the Italian coach agreed.
Conte did suggest that it’s not been easy for him given the injuries he has had this season.
Conte said: “I watched the interview of Richarlison. He didn’t criticise me. He said his season was s**t and he’s right.
“His season has been not good. He had injuries, played and scored in the Champions League and then went to the World Cup and then had a serious injury.
“He’s scored no goals for us. I think he was really honest to say his season was not good. His season has not finished yet.
“If he deserves to play I’ll give him the opportunity.”
