Everton Star Richarlison Claims Liverpool’s Thiago Snubbed His Apology After Bad Tackle

Everton forward Richarlison has claimed Thiago Alcantara ignored his apology after his rash tackle on the Liverpool star in the Merseyside derby.

Liverpool and Everton played out a 2-2 draw at Goodison Park in a bad-tempered Premier League clash on October 17.

Richarlison was shown a red card late on for a dangerous challenge on Thiago in the middle of the park, and has now revealed that the midfielder rejected his olive branch after the game.

The Everton striker admits there was extra tension between him and Thiago in their latest encounter at Anfield in February, which Liverpool lost 1-0.

“The last game I made that challenge on Thiago and got sent off. My goodness,” Richarlison said during a live YouTube chat with journalist Thiago Asmar.

“Then I went on Instagram to apologise and such. He only saw it. I said ‘I’m going to delete this message too, since he doesn’t want to reply’.

“Then I went there and deleted it. He didn’t answer, no.

“Then there was the derby now, at their home, he didn’t look at my face, I didn’t look at him, either. The game goes on. He ignored the pigeon (Richarlison’s nickname from Brazil).”
