‘Unbearable pain’ – Richarlison makes admission after undergoing surgery

Richarlison has revealed on social media that he had “unbearable pain” while playing from the beginning of the season, which is why he was unable to postpone having his pelvis operated on.

Following the London derby against Chelsea, Richarlison acknowledged on ESPN that he would need pelvic surgery. On Thursday, Tottenham revealed that the Brazilian’s operation went well and that he would miss many weeks of play.

For Ange Postecoglou, who is already missing three of his attackers—Manor Solomon, Ivan Perisic, and James Maddison—the 26-year-old’s unavailability presents yet another challenge.

After being switched to the left, the former Everton player had showed some improvement in his performances; nevertheless, due to his unavailability, the Tottenham manager is now operating with only the bare minimum in attack.

Richarlison discusses the Spurs’ injury issues.

Now that the season has begun, Richarlison has talked about his challenges and expressed gratitude to the supporters for their supportive words.

“Today, I underwent surgery to correct a chronic issue I’ve been experiencing in the pubic region,” the forward posted on Instagram. I’ve been in excruciating discomfort since the start of the season, which has affected my play and happiness on the field.

I made the decision a few days ago to put my health first, get better, get back into shape so I could perform to the best of my abilities, and most importantly, stop suffering agony.

“I’m going home now to start the healing process and get some rest. I understand that there may be difficult days when I don’t do what I love most in life, but continuing to put off taking care of my health would be unfair to me, my club, and the national team.

“God willing, I’ll be back very soon, fully healthy, and prepared for whatever difficulties lie ahead! I appreciate all of the supportive words you have sent, and I want to thank the club’s physicians for their excellent treatment! Toast!

Not only would Richarlison gain from getting the problem resolved, but the couple weeks off may help him regroup and return stronger. The 26-year-old seemed to be trying too hard and carried the weight of the world on his shoulders. When he gets back, hopefully, he’ll start liking football again.
