Conte confirms Richarlison World Cup dream is not over despite Tottenham injury

1 min read

Antonio Conte allayed fears of Richarlison missing the World Cup, but confirmed he will not be available for Tottenham’s game with Manchester United on Wednesday.

Richarlison suffered a calf injury in Spurs’ 2-0 victory over his former team Everton and was taken off in the 52nd minute before later being seen on crutches, causing concern he could face a race against time to be fit for Brazil’s World Cup opener against Serbia on November 24.

In a tearful interview after the game, Richarlison told ESPN Brazil: “It’s kind of hard to say because it’s close to the realisation of my dream.”

But when questioned over Richarlison potentially missing the World Cup, Conte had an optimistic message.

“The injury of Richarlison, he’s [having] a scan and then we will see how long he needs to recover,” Conte told reporters. “But for sure against United, he’s not available.

“I can confirm that the player is not risking not playing the World Cup, absolutely.”

Conte was unsure whether Richarlison’s fellow forward Dejan Kulusevski would be fit for Wednesday’s game at Old Trafford, after the Sweden international missed the Everton match with a hamstring injury.

“Kulusevski is working, we’ll see,” Conte added. “We have to go day by day with him.

“The medical department are working a lot to try to recover him, but we don’t know about the game against United.”
