Richarlison told Liverpool legend and prominent expert Jamie Carragher to “wash your mouth” and “I do not respect you” after helping Everton secure Premier League survival.
The Toffees were in a desperate situation at the break of Thursday’s clash with Crystal Palace at Goodison Park, trailing 2-0 to goals from Jean-Philippe Mateta and Jordan Ayew.
Michael Keane reduced the deficit, however, and Richarlison equalized to create a blockbuster finish, with Dominic Calvert-Lewin scoring a winner in the 85th minute to ensure Frank Lampard’s team averted relegation with a game to spare.
Ex-Liverpool defender Carragher has previously targeted Richarlison, particularly because of what he perceived as an actor in the matches against Liverpool and Chelsea.
Carragher, a former English defender, later wrote on social media that his assessment of the Brazilian striker “had nothing to do with bias”.
But Richarlison has clearly not forgotten the criticism and took the opportunity to strike back at Carragher.
He wrote on Twitter: “Wash your mouth before you talk about me and Everton and I do not respect you.”
Everton round off their season with a trip to Arsenal on Sunday, where the Gunners need a win to have any hope of beating rivals Tottenham in the race for the top four.
