Richarlison was on the move during the summer window but now has to serve a one-game suspension.
A little about the topic
The Brazilian footballer will have to be patient in chasing a debut for the Spurs on the back of his £50m transfer from the Toffees, with the player being squeezed with a one-match ban for throwing a lit flare. On May 1, during PL’s outing for Everton against the Blues, Richarlison took the scoring celebrations too far. Now the Brazilian is paying the price for this, as the Football Association is hitting him for inappropriate behavior.
The Brazil striker is keen to head to Tottenham after completing a big-money move to north London. His competitive bow was sidelined by the FA, who said in a statement that an independent regulatory panel suspended Richarlison for one match and fined him £25,000 following an England E3 Rule violation that occurred during a PL game on Sunday 1 May 2022. It was also said that the Spurs forward admitted that his behavior while speaking for the Toffees during the 46th minute of that game against the Blues was wrong, and his sanction was imposed at a subsequent hearing.
Why was the Brazilian banned?
The South American registered what turned out to be the game-winning goal against the Blues shortly after the restart in a critical relegation clash to threaten the Toffees at the end of the 2021-22 campaign. Those in the stands got a little carried away with the toasts of that effort, with pyrotechnics thrown out on the field. The mascot presence for Everton picked up on one of the outbursts, after initially celebrating with cheering teammates, and proceeded to launch her into the crowd.
Returning a stream of blue smoke back to where Richarlison came from was always likely to land him in hot water, and this was proven when the FA announced that he had been charged. With the suspension now due to be served, the Spurs – fresh from what secured the top four last season under Conte – are gearing up to open their 2022-23 PL campaign at home to Southampton on 6 August. After sitting out the competition, the Brazilian’s first entry into the market for new employers could face the Blues again in the London derby at Stamford Bridge.
