‘My dream’: £25m Tottenham player now reacts after receiving some disappointing news this week

Tottenham Hotspur defender Emerson Royal has now reacted on Instagram after receiving some disappointing news this week. 

Brazil announced their 26-man squad for the World Cup in Qatar on Monday and Royal found out that he will not be involved for his national side. 

The £26 million man was snubbed by Brazil boss Tite as he preferred Dani Alves and Danilo as right-back options for the tournament. 

It’s a big blow for Royal but not a surprising one as he hasn’t been called up for international duty since he was sent-off in the opening 20 minutes against Ecuador back in January. 

Now, the 23-year-old has insisted that he respects Tite’s decision and will be supporting his country over the next month.

Emerson reacts to Brazil snub 

Emerson took to Instagram yesterday and posted the following message on his story. 

“Thanks for all your messages, my dream continues… I understand and respect all the decisions and I’ll be here cheering for a great friend and above all for our country,” he wrote. 

The former Barcelona man has put in some mixed displays for Spurs this season and has not shown enough consistency to make the Brazil squad. 

Royal has come under scrutiny for a lack of cutting edge in the final third and has made some costly mistakes during the current campaign. 

The Brazilian was sent-off against Arsenal at the beginning of last month and it seems that his red card against Ecuador for Brazil has cost him a place in the squad.

He may benefit from some time on the training ground with Conte though and will be able to work on the weaker areas of his game during the World Cup. 

The Spurs boss seems to be a fan of the player and has often preferred him over other options like Matt Doherty and Djed Spence this season. 

Royal will need to use this set back as motivation and aim to improve his performances if he is to force his way into Brazil’s squad after the World Cup.
