Richarlison has appeared to question the severity of his challenge on Thiago Alcantara after Liverpool’s draw with Everton on Saturday.

The Brazilian forward was given a straight red card in the second half of the Merseyside derby at Goodison Park for his knee-high challenge on the Liverpool midfielder.

Richarlison subsequently apologised for the tackle and claimed the challenge was ‘a consequence of sheer over-dedication’.

The 23-year-old also revealed that he personally sent an apology to Thiago after the match.

But the authenticity of Richarlison’s apology has now been doubted by Liverpool supporters after he replied to a post of the challenge on Twitter with an image of his pained reaction after the tackle had been made.

Richarlison accompanied the image with a thinking face emoji, which many interpreted as an insinuation that the challenge was not as severe as initially believed.

The Brazilian subsequently deleted the post on Twitter.

Thiago managed to complete the match but Jurgen Klopp subsequently revealed that the midfielder was injured from Richarlison’s challenge.

‘I leave the pitch and Thiago tells me that in the red card situation with Richarlison he thinks he got injured,’ said the Liverpool manager.

‘We will see if it’s true or not. When a player feels like this we’ll immediately have a look.’

The Spain international could now be a doubt for Liverpool’s Champions League clash against Ajax on Wednesday.
