Richarlison Explains Why He Cried After Being Substituted Last Night
Watford winger Richarlison has explained why he was seen crying on the bench at Vicarage Road last night.
The Brazilian produced another impressive showing in the 4-1 thumping of Chelsea, a result that gave new manager Javi Gracia a stunning first win.
Football's most unforgettable moments:
But in the 65th minute, the former Fluminense man was substituted for Roberto Pereyra, who went on to score a stunning goal in stoppage time - and he was visibly upset with the decision.

However, it wasn't because of an injury - or even that he wanted to make a bigger impression on Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino, who was in attendance.
The 20-year old simply wanted to play on, as per the man himself.
"I was crying because I wanted to play and help by team-mate, but in the end the guy that entered the pitch did the job well so it's all okay," he told ESPN Brazil.
Here's how Twitter reacted to Richarlison crying:

I hope somebody makes sure Richarlison is okay outwith football because he isn't sitting on the bench crying purely because he got subbed.

Richarlison crying on the bench after being taken off... feel sorry for the lad, obviously not comfortable at the club but still goes on about his work. Unlike Mahrez. #WATCHE
