Everton ahead Richarlison has issued an apology to Liverpool`s Thiago Alcantara for his dangerous problem on the midfielder in direction of the top of Saturday`s 2-2 draw within the Premier League.
Thiago ultimately received up from Richarlison`s red-card sort out and created the opening for a late disallowed aim by Jordan Henderson however later reported an harm.
“Everyone who knows my background knows that I was never a violent player,” Richarlison mentioned in a press release.
“I did not enter that dispute with the intention of hurting Thiago… 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.”
Liverpool`s Dutch defender Virgil van Dijk was taken off with an harm early within the sport following a wild sort out from Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.
Liverpool supervisor Juergen Klopp mentioned Van Dijk was “not good” and described Pickford`s actions as “not a problem the keeper can do.”
Henderson mentioned the England goalkeeper, who went unpunished after the incident, was sorry for his actions.
“Everyone keeps asking us about it so I`m guessing it`s a red card. It mustn`t be a good challenge,” Henderson advised BT Sport.
“To be fair, Jordan came up and apologised to me after the game and (told me) to tell Virgil.”
