Liverpool Fans Are Fuming After Lucas Digne Jokes About Richarlison's Red Card On Instagram
It was a game full of controversial incidents. Virgil van Dijk hobbled off in the early stages at Goodison Park after a Jordan Pickford scissor tackle and, in the final minutes, Jordan Henderson's last minute goal was controversially ruled offside.
The Premier League clash eventually finished 2-2 but for many, the talking points included a number of dangerous tackles, including Richarlison's high-foot on Liverpool midfielder Thiago Alcantara, who somehow carried on following the incident.
Both players contested for the loose ball but Richarlison planted his boot into Thiago's shin, which gave referee Michael Oliver no other choice but to send the Brazilian forward for an early bath.
"Everyone who knows my background knows that I was never a violent player," he wrote.
"I did not enter that dispute with the intention of hurting Thiago. When I saw that the crash was going to happen, I picked up my foot and hit him with my knee in the pass, which was inevitable due to the speed of the play.
"I already sent a message to him apologising and I also do it here publicly. I hope he hasn't been hurt and that everything is fine."

Retrospective action required. Pickford, Digne and Richarlison should all be banned for a minimum of 3 games each.- anthony forman (@iformanator) October 19, 2020
