Neymar has now posted a wordless reaction to Richarlison’s controversial skill for Tottenham Hotspur this weekend, writes the TBR.
Richarlison caused some controversy on Sunday evening during Spurs’ 2-0 win over Nottingham Forest.
The Brazilian came on and made a huge impact on the game as he set Harry Kane up for his second goal that sealed the three points for Spurs.
But the 25-year-old has been criticised after doing kick-ups in the final moments of the game.
Richarlison was seemingly running down the clock and showboating and was then taken out by Forest forward Brennan Johnson.
It led to backlash from Jamie Carragher, who was co-commentating on the game, and a tweet from German legend Dietmar Hamann.
Hamman wrote: “Nothing to do with showboating. Should have been booked for unsportsmanlike conduct and restarted with free kick to Forest.”
And Richarlison responded: “Cry more.”
Now Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar Junior has replied to Richarlison’s response.
The Brazilian certainly seems to find his national teammate’s response funny and here is how he reacted.

Neymar is a player who is no stranger to showboating as he has often shown throughout his career.
And it seems that he appreciates Richarlison’s skill, even if Hamann doesn’t.
The Spurs man has made a big impact in his three substitute appearances so far and Sunday was no different.
The game was still on a knife edge when the former Everton man came off the bench. And he injected some much-needed aggression into the Spurs frontline.
