Jamie Carragher tweets seven-word response to Richarlison jibe after Everton's survival
Jamie Carragher has responded to Richarlison’s jibe after Everton secured Premier League survival last night.
Richarlison scored Everton’s equaliser as they came from behind to beat Crystal Palace 3-2 at Goodison Park and go four points clear of the relegation zone.
After that dramatic win, Richarlison took to Twitter to send a message to Carragher and made his feelings absolutely clear.
During last month’s Merseyside derby, Carragher said on commentary after Richarlison went down injured: “Honestly, get up, every week I watch him play like that! Get up, carry on.”
“He’s been down three times already, [there’s] nothing wrong with him.”
Carragher of course grew up as an Everton fan but has become synonymous with Liverpool, the club he played for throughout his career.
Carragher replies to Richarlison
He wasted no time in responding on Twitter, sending a seven-word message when asked about the tweet by the Brazil international forward.
I stay loyal to fellow Crosby neighbours!!— Jamie Carragher (@Carra23) May 20, 2022
He then followed it up with a longer reply, saying he actually liked what Richarlison did and that he would have done similar if social media was around in his playing days.
Everton have stayed up, sparking wild scenes at Goodison Park and ensuring they do not need anything from Sunday’s trip to face Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.
The season as a whole has not been good enough. The appointment of Rafa Benitez went as badly as everyone expected and Lampard has not produced a linear improvement.
He has brought about enough improvement to stay up and Richarlison has been a big part of that with his goals and desire in recent weeks.
The forward has been linked with Arsenal, but the nature of his decision is different now it has been confirmed that the Toffees will be a top flight club next season.
It remains to be seen how this spat plays out. Richarlison’s Everton team-mate Dominic Calvert-Lewin was on Monday Night Football alongside Carragher this season, and what a night’s entertainment it would be if the Brazilian came on next season…
