Richarlison has acknowledged his mental health struggles caused by off-the-field concerns and revealed that will seek therapy when he returns to Tottenham after the international break. Just over a year after leaving Everton for Spurs in a £60 million transfer, the Brazilian has scored just one Premier League goal for the north London club. 

With these poor performances, Richarlison has been the target of countless trolls on social media. After Brazil defeated Peru 1-0 in their World Cup qualifying match, Richarlison, 26, opened up about the problems he has been dealing with off the pitch. 

"I went through a turbulent time in the last five months off the field. Now things are right at home. People who only had an eye on my money walked away from me. Now things will start to flow, and I'm sure I'll get a good run at Tottenham and make things happen again," Richarlison admitted. 

"That sad moment wasn't even because I played poorly, in my opinion, I didn't play badly in Belém, it was more of an outburst about the things that were happening off the field, which were out of control not on my part, but on the part of people who were close to me," the forward added further.

He stated that he will be taking psychological help soon, “ I’m going to go back to England, seek psychological help, from a psychologist, to work on my mind. That’s it, come back stronger. I believe I will be in the next Brazil squad. I will work for that.”
