Everton forward, Richarlison has revealed that Liverpool’s Thiago Alcantara ignored his apology after his (Richarlison) rash tackle on him in the Merseyside derby.
Richarlison who was given a red card for the challenge on the Spaniard, says the midfielder disregarded his attempts to say sorry.
The clash between the two Merseyside clubs ended in 2-2 draw at Goodison Park and was bad-tempered.
While this incident happened on October 17, 2020, Richarlison admits there was extra tension between him and the Spain International during their latest encounter at Anfield in February. Liverpool lost the game 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.”
