Richarlison of Tottenham Hotspur has resorted to social media to make a subtle dig at Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp. This happened following Tottenham’s 2-1 triumph against Liverpool on Saturday (September 30).

The game was overshadowed by a series of controversial decisions, the most notable of which being Liverpool’s opening being incorrectly chalked off for offside. PGMOL, the officiating body, eventually issued an official apologies for the lapse.

The inaccuracy aided the Reds’ downfall, which was sealed when Joel Matip scored an own goal in the 96th minute. Tottenham won all three points, moving up to second position in the Premier League rankings.

Richarlison, who assisted Son Heung-min’s first-half goal, got into a furious argument with Klopp after a strong tackle on Mohamed Salah. The collision occurred only meters away from Klopp and his Tottenham opponent, Ange Postecoglou, in their technical areas.

The battle of words has been overshadowed by VAR’s mistakes in the match, but Richarlison took advantage of the chance to reignite it through TikTok. The Brazilian international shared a video of himself and the German boss arguing.

The song “Se Acabo” by The Beatnuts and Method Man accompanied it. This song appears regularly in memes and jokes on the app. Tottenham’s star has a long history of animosity with Liverpool, thanks to his time spent at their Merseyside rivals, Everton. He has appeared in 12 games versus Jurgen Klopp’s side, scoring three goals and assisting on two others.
