​Tottenham manager Conte: Richarlison wasn't disrespecting Nottingham Forest


Tottenham boss Antonio Conte says that striker Richarlison meant no disrespect towards Nottingham Forest.

The London club bested the newly promoted side 2-0 on Sunday, thanks to a double from Harry Kane.

However, Forest players and fans were furious when Richarlison was juggling the ball with two minutes left on the clock, with Brennan Johnson committing a foul on him.

"He juggled with the ball," Conte said post-game.

"It is a game and you are under pressure. I repeat it is OK. I don't think Richy wanted to show disrespect to Nottingham Forest.

"Forest are a really good team with a great history in football and we have a great respect. Richy for sure thinks in the same way. Not disrespectful for anyone and I can tell you this."
