Richarlison: I wasn't a mutiny leader against Conte

Tottenham forward Richarlison insists he wasn't a mutiny leader in relation to the exit of Antonio Conte.

Antonio Conte left Tottenham on Sunday by mutual consent after his relationship with players and the club’s directors broke down in recent weeks.

Argentinian broadcaster TyC Sports claimed on Wednesday that if Conte had stayed, then Richarlison and his team-mate Cristian Romero would have asked to leave the club in the summer, but the Brazilian forward insists that he did not play any part in Antonio Conte's departure.

"Questioning and criticising me as a player for my performance is part of football and I got it,"

Richarlison said on Twitter.

"However, telling lies about me, I don't accept! I've always had a lot of respect for Conte and for all my coaches.

"He helped me a lot in my (sic) coming to the Spurs and, whenever we had a problem (even if it was public) we solved it based on conversation and professionalism - and this he can confirm.

"I wasn't a mutiny leader against him, it was quite the opposite. I'm sorry I didn't deliver as much as he expected of me and I didn't do enough for him to stay.

"When he left, I sent him a message thanking him for everything and wishing him the best cause that's what he deserves!

"On the other hand, the journalist responsible for this awful lie did not even do the least which would be talking to my PR or listening to me. Bad professional and bad character! And shame on you, TyC Sports!”

Tottenham will face Everton on Monday, but Richarlison is set to miss this match due to a minor muscle injury.
