Conte explains plans for Richarlison after Spurs debut

We have a problem with COVID Conte said after the game in front of 64,000 supporters in the Korean capital. The test was positive for Bissouma and Forster. And because of that they’re not here. However, £ 60million player Richarlison has started in the starting lineup. The Brazilian forward played 77 minutes of the match. Which starts with being a striker before switching to the right wing in the second half.  Conte admires the versatile nature of his new players. The Italian coach said in a press conference after the game via football london says 

Today I saw good things. A lot about Richie The first half he played like number nine. The second half he played on the right behind the striker. I think he can play in all three of these positions . Of course, for Richie during this time he was working. And we are working on tactics together with him. because he must understand our concept meanwhile We have to work physically to keep him fit . He’s a good player, strong, very good at keeping the ball around and attacking in empty spaces. He also made good assists. I am very happy that we signed him.”

While Richarlison was unable to score. But he has also made an impact on the team that Conte is looking for, and the Italian has expressed his satisfaction with having the Brazilian in the squad because of the quality and versatility he has . The 25-year-old played mainly as a striker during his four years at Everton, where he enjoyed a satisfactory performance with 53 goals in 152 games across all competitions for the Toffees, however he can play as a winger on either side. Which he did so many times at Goodison Park and that will give him and Conte a special power as they head into the new season. While Richarlison can act as a back-to-back striker for Harry Kane, he can also fill in either wing during rotations or replace an injured player. as well

  As part of this game, playing in the 77 minutes of the match showed Richarlison’s fitness was well within the expectation range. And that’s a bright sign for Conte. Especially Ken and Son Heung-min, who both scored two goals in a 6-3 victory despite joining the rest of the team a week later than the others , Dejan Kulusevski became a puzzle. The last piece in Tottenham Hotspur’s offensive line last season. He side with Ken and Naughty. It became one of the most dangerous front three in Europe in the second half of the 2021/22 season, helping Spurs finish in the top four.
