Richarlison has taken to social media to mock former Liverpool midfielder Dietmar Hamann’s comments about his showboating against Nottingham Forest on Sunday.

With Spurs 2-0 up at the City Ground, Richarlison decided to juggle the ball in the final few minutes of the game and the Tottenham man’s antics did not go down with Forest players, who brought him to the ground with a hard tackle.

Forest boss Steve Cooper insisted that the 25-year-old’s actions were unacceptable (Guardian) and the incident has been debated widely in the media over the last few days (talkSPORT).

Hamann has now taken to social media to state that Richarlison should have been booked by the referee for showboating.

The Spurs forward responded to the former Reds star’s post with “Cry more”.

Richarlison also tagged Jamie Carragher, who has been critical of the Brazilian’s play acting in the past, in a video of his showboating, and the former Sky pundit approved of the Tottenham star’s antics.

Spurs Web Opinion

I knew when we signed Richarlison that he will get under the skin of opposition fans but I certainly did not expect him to start doing it so soon before he has even started a single game for Spurs.

The Brazilian is certainly going to provide a lot of entertainment over the coming years and I am already looking forward to what he does in the North London Derby.
