Richarlison to be BANNED for first game of season with Tottenham debut delayed after throwing firework while at Everton

, Richarlison to be BANNED for first game of season with Tottenham debut delayed after throwing firework while at Everton

TOTTENHAM’S latest signing Richarlison is set to receive a one-match ban for throwing a flare into the crowd last season.

The 25-year-old Brazilian forward launched the object at Everton supporters after netting the winner in the Toffees‘ 1-0 win over Chelsea back in May.

And despite now having agreed a £60million move to Spurs he will still be punished for the offence.

It follows an investigation into the incident by the Football Association.

The one-game suspension means he will be unavailable for Tottenham’s opening match of the season at home to Southampton on August 6.

Spurs were well aware that this could be the outcome of the probe when agreeing to buy the ex-Watford forward.

And while they obviously would not like to see their new man get in this sort of trouble when playing for them, it highlights a feistiness in Richarlison which made him an attractive signing.

Spurs beat off late competition from London rivals Chelsea to capture the versatile striker, who played a key role in keeping Everton up last season.

Antonio Conte’s side spent £50m up front, with another £10m in add-ons, for the South American who signed a five-year deal.

His first match in a Tottenham shirt could now be at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea on August 13.

Spurs are still looking for more defensive recruits and are continuing talks with both Barcelona and Middlesbrough over respective potential signings Clement Lenglet and Djed Spence.

The club have already secured Fraser Forster, Ivan Perisic, Yves Bissouma and Richarlison this summer.

It comes as they prepare to re-enter the Champions League after a two-year hiatus.
