  • Richarlison hilariously snubbed suggestions that he can banter with his manager Antonio Conte
  • Conte was involved in an interesting spat with former Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel during the London derby last month
  • But Richarlison, despite acknowledging the fiery nature of the clash had positives, said he would never attempt to laugh about it with his boss

Tottenham star Richarlison has hilariously declared he’d have to be ‘insane’ to try to bring up the viral incident involving his manager Antonio Conte and Thomas Tuchel.

The two managers were famously sent off during the clash involving Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League which ended in a 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge last month.

At the final whistle, the two squared up after a botched handshake and Anthony Taylor was left with little choice but to send both managers off.

While Richarlison admitted such incidents had a positive spin for football, he was also quick to dismiss any chances of bantering with his boss about it.

'That was fun, wasn't it?' Richarlison said in an interview with Four Four Two magazine.

'At the time we were still involved with the game, so we watched what happened between them on video in the dressing room.

'It's pretty normal in football – things happen between players all the time, so it can happen to the coaches as well.
'Everyone calms down and moves on. But it was amusing to see that confrontation between the two bosses. Ours isn't afraid of confrontations, is he?'

Asked whether he would ever try to bring up the incident with his manager, Richarlison’s response was blunt and somewhat funny.

'Are you insane? No chance, come on!' 'Would you try any jokes? I did not.’

Since making a £60million move from Everton, Richarlison has settled in quite seamlessly and is an integral part of Antonio Conte’s squad.

He scored twice in the Champions League for Spurs and has made his mark as a regular starter, sometimes at the expense of 2021/2022 Premier League top scorer Son Heung Min.

Jack Grealish told he is not a great player

Elsewhere, Popular English pundit Graeme Souness has sensationally claimed that Manchester City star Jack Grealish is not a great player.

The former Aston Villa man made a big money move to Manchester last season but is yet to live up to the £100 million price tag.

According to TalkSPORT, the Liverpool icon said that Grealish hasn't changed one bit since his time at Aston Villa, poking holes at his style of play. Grealish scored his first goal of the season this past weekend against Wolves.
