Flares ban to delay Richarlison’s Spurs debut after £50m move from Everton

The Brazil international striker has been on the move during the summer window but now has to serve a one-game ban.

Richarlison is going to have to be patient as he pursues Tottenham’s debut following his £50m ($60m) transfer from Everton, with the Brazilian handed a one-match ban for having launched a flare.

On May 1, in a Premier League outing for the Toffees against Chelsea, the 25-year-old took goal celebrations too far.

He is now paying the price, with the Football Association hitting him with an improper conduct charge.

How long has Richarlison been banned?

The South American is eager to get started at Spurs after completing a big move to north London.

His competitive arc was pushed back by the FA, who said in a statement: “An independent regulatory commission has suspended Richarlison de Andrade for one game and fined him £25,000 following a breach of Rule E3 of the FA which took place in a Premier League match on Sunday 1 May 2022.

“The Tottenham Hotspur FC striker has admitted his conduct while playing for Everton FC in the 46th minute of that game against Chelsea FC was improper, and his penalty was imposed at a subsequent hearing. “
