It seems that Brazilian star Richarlison, the Tottenham striker, suffers from psychological problems that affected him on the field and kept him from his level, and most importantly from scoring against opponents, and that is why he decided to turn to a psychiatrist.
The last time the Brazilian international scored (he scored 20 goals for the Seleção in 45 matches) for his country was in the 2022 Qatar World Cup, and despite his country’s landslide victory – last Friday – by five over Bolivia, he did not score any goal and the coach replaced him in the match, so he left crying. He also missed an easy opportunity in Brazil’s difficult 1-0 victory over Peru.
More than that, Fricharlison (26 years old) scored only 4 times in the 40 matches he played with Spurs since signing him in the summer of 2022 for about 70 million euros from Everton in the Premier League, which worried him and prompted him to speak frankly to the Brazilian newspaper “O Globo”.
The former Everton player said that he “will return to England and seek help from a psychologist to work on my mental state so that I can come back stronger in the near future.”
He continued, “I think the coach will choose me in the squad for the next match, and this is what I will work to achieve.” “It’s about getting back to my level again at Tottenham. I will sit down this week and talk to them. I need to get back to scoring and participating fundamentally to regain the rhythm of the matches.”
He added, “On the field, I am a team player and I help my team. Sometimes things do not go the way we want.” I think this problem comes from outside the field and is hindering my development on the field. “Even though you want to do things right, it ends up wrong.”
He concluded, “I will continue to focus on the club. The storm has passed. I went through a turbulent time in the last five months off the field.” Now things are right at home. People who courted me for my money just turned me away. Now things will start to improve, and I am sure that I will perform well at Tottenham and make things happen in a good way again.”
Spurs, second in the Premier League, will host Sheffield United next Saturday.
