MICHAIL ANTONIO, Callum Wilson and others were in stitches when they talked about Richarlison’s shambolic goal celebrations during the current season.
Tottenham’s former star, who scored his club’s first ever goal on Sunday night against Liverpool in Anfield, headed in a dramatic equaliser at the end of stoppage-time.
Richarlison (25), went crazy after hitting the goal. He took off his shirt and then scolded the fans at home before he performed his “pigeon celebration” with teammate Son Heung Min.
Lucas Moura’s poor decision led to Diogo Jota winning the match for Reds.
Richarlison Discussion Football Podcast by The FootballersAntonio stated: “He has scored four goals in this season. Three of those times, he was offside.
Four times in the last season, he has taken off his hat.
Newcastle’s star Wilson said, “He has four yellows and he is almost suspended.”
Richarlison was only booked 3 times in this season. And only for celebrating an unallowed goal.
In September, against Fulham, Ryan Sessegnon was ruled offside for the initial build-up.
Then, in the Champions League he went on to score twice again against Marseille. He didn’t take off his shirt at any point.

Richarlison was also shown a yellow card for his dissent in August, during the 1-1 draw between West Ham and Antonio.
The goal was disallowed in March against Nottingham Forest, and he didn’t remove his shirt.
The Hammers’ forward then continued, “I want to know.” The goal he scored the other night was almost offside.
The man is rated highly by me. He doesn’t give a damn. “He doesn’t give a damn.”
Antonio continued: “I understand those moments where you take your shirt off. Like, I totally get it.
Then you will have to get up and run.
“But the reality is that on three occasions this season he did it and remained offside.
This would always be on my mind. It would grow, and it would plant a full seed thinking, “I want to be sure if i am on board before i go crazy.”
