GABBY AGBONLAHOR has slammed Risharlison and thinks he should be banished to the U18s following his rant about Antonio Conte’s team selection.
The Brazilian forward hit out at the Italian after he was benched for Tottenham’s Champions League defeat to AC Milan.
Richarlison believed that he should have started the game following his appearances against West Ham and Chelsea.
He said: “That’s what I didn’t understand, too [being a substitute]. It was going well, in a good sequence, two wins against West Ham and Chelsea.
“Suddenly, [assistant boss Cristian Stellini] put me on the bench, against Wolverhampton he put me on for five minutes. I asked why? They didn’t tell me anything.
“Let’s see what [Conte] will say tomorrow, but there are no fools here either, I’m a professional, I work every day and I want to play. There are minutes left, time left.
“This season, excuse the word, it’s been s***, because I don’t have minutes, I suffered a little with the injury. But, when I enter the field, I give my life. I came from two games well, I think that’s it, I think I should have played and I don’t have to cry about it.”
And his outburst has caused Agbonlahor to take aim at him with his overall performance since making his £60million move to Tottenham from Everton last summer.
He told talkSPORT: “Richarlison, £60 million he cost. Premier League goals zero, assists, two.
“Always moaning, always rolling around on the floor.

“He’s come out and said he’s had a positive moment and say’s Conte put me on the bench. His positive moment is two games, zero goals – I don’t’ get it?
“Positive for £60m is a couple of goals, a couple of assists. So don’t be moaning when you’re not performing when you’re given a chance.
“If I’m Conte and Conte looks like that kind of manager, I’m sure his boots and kit are in the U18 dressing room this morning.”
The 25-year-old has featured 25 times for the North London side this season but has only scored twice, both of which came in the Champions League.
