Richarlison fires social media dig at Jurgen Klopp after Tottenham’s controversial Liverpool win



Richarlison fired a social media dig at Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp after Tottenham’s 2-1 victory over Liverpool on Saturday.

Liverpool had a goal incorrectly ruled out and then, after being reduced to nine men, Joel Matip conceded a 96th-minute own goal to see Tottenham claim all three points and climb to second in the table.

When the scores were locked at 0-0 Liverpool attacker Luis Diaz had a goal wrongly chalked off for offside, with referee body PGMOL officially apologising for the error after the game.

It was later revealed VAR mistakenly believed that the on-field decision had been to award the goal. This resulted in Darren England, who was in charge of VAR, relaying a message of ‘check complete’, despite realising that Diaz was onside.

In a game loaded with controversy, a war of words between Klopp and Richarlison in the first half has been completely overlooked in the aftermath of the encounter.

The Brazil international, who set up Son Heung-min’s first-half goal, went in strong on Mohamed Salah metres away from Klopp and Ange Postecoglou in their respective technical areas.

What followed was a stern war of words between Richarlison and the German manager.

And the Spurs star has responded to the altercation on TikTok, posting of a video of the incident, layered with the song The Beatnuts and Method Man called Se Acabo, a track regularly used alongside memes.

Richarlison has a rich history with Liverpool, having represented the club’s city rivals Everton for years.

Of course, after the game, Klopp had more significant incidents to discuss than his touch-line argument with Richarlison.

On Liveprool’s two red cards the German said: “The first red card, Curtis [Jones] steps on the ball and goes over. Not a bad tackle. It looks different in slow motion. He steps full throttle on the ball and goes over the ball. That is unlucky.”

[For Diogo Jota] first yellow was not a yellow. Then he gets a second and to defend with nine players is tricky.”

On Diaz’s ruled-out goal, the Liverpool boss added: “The offside goal. That is not offside when you see it, they drew their lines wrong. The ball is between Mo’s legs, they drew the line wrong and didn’t judge the moment when Mo passed the ball right. It is so tough to deal with it.”
