As the pressure mounted, Richarlison has taken the courageous step of addressing the underlying issues that have affected his performances. Following Brazil’s hard-fought 1-0 World Cup qualifier victory over Peru, in which Richarlison had a headed effort ruled out for offside, the 26-year-old opened up about his struggles off the pitch.

The Brazilian forward expressed his determination to work on his mental well-being and also, overcome the challenges that have impacted his form. Here is what he had to say via football.london
“I’m going to go back to England and will seek psychological help, from a psychologist, to work on my mind. That’s it, come back stronger. It’s about getting a good streak at Tottenham, this week I’m going to sit down and talk to them, I need a good streak, get the rhythm of the game and get here well.”
Richarlison’s journey to return to his peak performance level is marked by a determination to emerge stronger. He recognizes the importance of finding consistency and rhythm in his game, which will certainly be pivotal in reclaiming his spot among the Premier League’s elite.
Crucially, Richarlison certainly has the unwavering support of his new manager, Ange Postecoglou, who has shown faith in the Brazilian’s potential to bounce back. Additionally, his national team coach, Fernando Diniz, has demonstrated his belief in Richarlison’s ability to overcome the challenges he faces.
His dedication to the cause and his commitment to improving his mental well-being surely reflect a player determined to overcome adversity and thrive in the Lilywhite jersey.
