Richarlison explains why he was crying after being subbed off against Chelsea

Richarlison was pictured in tears after being subbed off in Watford's 4-1 win against Chelsea

Dry your eyes mate.

Watford’s Brazilian forward Richarlison was pictured in floods of tears after being subbed off against Chelsea.

There was a fair amount of confusion given Watford were 1-0 up against 10-man Chelsea at the time.

Added to the intrigue was the fact Mike Dean and Troy Deeney had talked to the 20-year-old, who was on a yellow card, minutes before the tears.

So was he crying because he hadn’t impressed the watching Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino?

Or was it something more sinister?

Luckily no.

Richarlison told ESPN Brazil: “I was crying because I wanted to play and help by team-mate, but in the end the guy that entered the pitch did the job well so it’s all okay.”

Passion.

Earlier in the game Tiemoue Bakayoko’s challenge on Richarlison had earned the Frenchman a second yellow card.

Watford went on to win through goals from Troy Deeney, Daryl Janmaat, Gerard Deulofeu and Roberto Pereyra, despite Eden Hazard briefly equalising.

The loss means rumours about Antonio Conte’s impending exit will grow even louder.

So there could be more tears before long. Hope Richarlison lends Antonio a tissue.
