Conte’s men crashed out of the Champions League after losing the first leg in Italy 1-0.
They have now crashed out of two competitions in less than two weeks after losing to Sheffield United in the FA Cup.
Richarlison came off the bench in the last 20 minutes but he was unable to make an impact.
He has now questioned Antonio Conte for not starting him.
Richarlison said, “That’s what I didn’t understand, too (being a substitute). It was going well, in a good sequence, two wins against West Ham and Chelsea.
“Suddenly, he (Cristian Stellini) put me on the bench, against Wolverhampton he put me on for five minutes. I asked why? They didn’t tell me anything.
“And, yesterday, they asked me to take a test at the gym, that if I was good I would go to the game and, at the time of the game, they left me on the bench. These are things that it is not possible to understand.
“Let’s see what he (Conte) will say tomorrow, but there are no fools here either, I’m a professional, I work every day and I want to play. There are minutes left, time left.
season, excuse the word, it’s been s***, because I don’t have minutes, I suffered a little with the injury. But, when I enter the field, I give my life. I came from two games well, I think that’s it, I think I should have played and I don’t have to cry about it.
Richarlison joined Tottenham from Everton in the summer for a fee of £50m plus £10m in potential add-ons.
He has scored just two goals for Spurs in the Champions League.
The 25-year-old is yet to score for Tottenham in the Premier League in 17 appearances.
