Watford's Richarlison Reveals Why He Was In Floods Of Tears After Being Benched During Win Over Chelsea

Watford forward Richarlison was pictured in floods of tears after being subbed off against Chelsea — and he has revealed it was because he wanted to help his team seal the win.
The Brazilian youngster was hauled off by new boss, Javi Gracia, with the Hornets leading the reigning champions 1-0.

And television cameras focused on a tearful Richarlison sitting on the home bench after he was replaced by Roberto Pereyra in the second half of the game.

It was unclear at the time why the 20-year-old was sobbing, but he later explained the reason.

He told ESPN Brazil:

"I was crying because I wanted to play and help my team-mates, but in the end the guy that entered the pitch did the job well so it's all okay."

It was indeed Richarlison's replacement, Pereyra, who capped off a fine Watford performance in Monday night's 4-1 thrashing of Chelsea.
