Jamie Carragher criticized Richalison’s social media saying: “Talking about Richarlison going down has nothing to do with bias.
“Every Everton game I do he goes down three times like he’s got a big injury then just gets up! It’s not about getting a penalty or a foul but pretending he’s hurt when he’s not.”
The Brazilian forward still has not forgotten about Jamie Carragher’s criticism hitting back at him tweeting:”Wash your mouth before you talk about me and Everton and I don’t respect you.”
Frank Lampard has described the Everton comeback as the greatest moment in his football career.
The former Chelsea coach said:‘It’s one of the greatest moments of my footballing life and career.
“I’ve been very fortunate to have amazing times, especially at Chelsea as a player and a coach. But when you feel the feelings and desperation of what relegation brings to the table, it is different.
“You need to dig in. You lose games, you fight to do something and then you lose another game. People think you should fly up the table and it’s never that way.
“Coming in here three and a half months ago with my amazing staff, positive people who work so hard, and trying to affect things and getting a reaction from the players, from the fans and feeling unity when it looked split.
“This club is special and I am proud to be the manager of Everton on this night. I thought I might cry [at full-time], I thought I might jump out of my body.
“Nobody can question the celebrations at the end. It is easy to say “but you haven’t won anything”. You know what, come and work at this club for a few months and see the difficulties and what it means to people to stay in this league.
“See us 2-0 down at half-time, playing poorly, a ridiculous second goal, and then see the character they showed. See the fans on the pitch in good heart and spirit.
‘They have pulled us over the line, they have been more than a 12th man. But the players also deserve huge credit. An amazing night.”
Congratulations to Frank Lampard and Everton for securing Premier League safety.
