The £40m Brazilian international returned to the pitch after a full month out on the sidelines. And Richarlison signalled his comeback to action with a goal to fire Everton 2-1 up against Watford just past the hour mark.
However, as we know, the Toffees completely collapsed as Claudio Ranieri’s side hit three goals in the space of eight minutes to turn the score on its head. With Emmanuel Dennis scoring a fifth in added time just for good measure.
It was a downright embarrassing collapse from Everton. And Richarlison made his feelings known on social media with a hefty post from his official Twitter account.
The Brazilian international wrote: “It was sad to stay away from what I love doing. I’m competitive, I always want to be on the field. Going back today was more than a joy, but a relief.
“I am happy for the goal, it’s a shame that the result was far from what we would have liked. Now is the time to get our heads up and work.”
