Jamie Carragher has slammed Tottenham Hotspur forward Richarlison for showboating during their 2-0 victory over Nottingham Forest on Sunday.
The Brazilian was introduced as a substitute by manager Antonio Conte in the 74th minute to see out Spurs’ lead at the City Ground.
And the 25-year-old displayed his brilliance by setting up Harry Kane to double the visitors’ advantage in the 81st minute.

Yet with just five minutes of the game remaining, Richarlison began doing keepy-ups in the Nottingham Forest half – before being wiped out by Brennan Johnson.
And Sky Sports co-commentator Carragher was less than impressed by the Brazilian’s antics in the dying embers of the game.
He said: ‘Woah! It does wind people up. You can’t do that. But what is he doing?
‘He just winds people up that lad, Richarlison. He winds me up. What do you expect Johnson to do? You’re not condoning that but…’

It is not the first run-in between Carragher and former Everton attacker Richarlison.
After the pundit aimed criticism at the Brazilian last season, the 25-year-old took to social media to call out the ex-Liverpool defender.
‘@Carra23 wash your mouth before you talk about me and Everton and I don’t respect you,’ Richarlison tweeted, followed by the smiling poo emoji.
Carragher appeared to squash the squabble, as he replied ‘I actually quite like this, if Twitter was about when I was a player I’m sure I would’ve called pundits out quite a lot!!’
Yet it remains to be seen how the pundits latest comments will go down with the Tottenham attacker.
