Richarlison injury update

Richarlison has only recently returned to the fray following a knee complaint that ruled him out of Spurs’ last two Premier League games.

The forward has been called up to the Brazil squad for their games in March but did not feature in the 1-0 win over England on Saturday.

Now, Brazil coach Dorival Junior has provided an update on the Tottenham man, stating they will take ‘all possible care’ in regards to the 26-year-old’s fitness:

“I didn’t go with Richarlison, who made an enormous effort to get on the pitch, but he has a natural recovery process,” he said.

“We are taking all possible care with him so as not to worsen the situation. He is working little by little to get back into better condition, it’s still a bit of a slow process.

“Richarlison was initially ruled out for this game, for the next game we’re going to rethink all of this, it will depend on his evolution.”

Brazil’s next outing sees them play host to Spain on Tuesday evening at 8:30 pm UK time.
