Why is Richarlison not at Preston? Rumors floating around that he’s hurt his hamstring again under the guidance of your brilliant medical department?

This is hilarious but why is he not with the team going to Preston? You haven’t let the medical team have time with him have you?

Richarlison snubs Martinelli

Richarlison could be an angel and otherwise whenever he feels like, he may have shown a classy gesture to a fellow Brazilian last night, but weeks ago did the opposite to another Brazilian.

As Sports Brief earlier reported, he snubbed Martinelli after the London derby match, which Arsenal won 2-0 at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium.

He however sent a message to him later and revealed he snubbed him because he was diving too much in the match. He also clashed with Takehiro Tomiyasu and Aaron Ramsdale in the match.
