Richarlison scored in the 5-1 Paris win but saw a banana thrown onto the pitch in his goal celebration. The following day, Richarlison called on football’s governing bodies to take firm and swift action against those responsible for the racist attack, with Thiago Silva among the players offering their support.
Tottenham followed suit with their own condemnation of the incident and now Conte, speaking ahead of Tottenham’s weekend at Arsenal, said: “We have to take the good part of the situation, you know? Richy played with the national team and scored a goal.
“Then I think what happened is incredible because in 2022 witnessing this type of situation is embarrassing for everyone. I hope these people can be banned from football for the rest of their lives.
“It’s a very disappointing situation to comment on. I want to take the best part of the game from Richy and he scored three goals and he enjoyed playing for Brazil.”
