Carragher ends Richarlison feud with kickabout after ‘wash your mouth’ jibe

Jamie Carragher and Richarlison appeared to bury the hatchet with an impromptu kickabout on the Etihad Stadium pitch.

Sky Sports favourite Carragher and Tottenham forward Richarlison began their feud last season when the Brazilian took to Twitter after Everton guaranteed their Premier League survival.

"@Carra23 wash your mouth before you talk about me and Everton, and I don't respect you," Richarlison tweeted, alongside a less than savoury emoji. Carragher responded with a surprisingly positive comment, saying: "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!!"

Their online confrontation came after Carragher accused Richarlison of play-acting in last season's Merseyside derby at Anfield. They also had another altercation during Tottenham's 2-0 win over Nottingham Forest in August, with Carragher claiming the star "winds him up."

But they put all of that behind them before Thursday night's game between Man City and Spurs as they enjoyed an impromptu kickabout on the Etihad pitch.

Are you a fan of Richarlison? Let us know in the comments section.

In a clip broadcast on Sky Sports during Tottenham's warm-up, Richarlison passed the ball to Carragher, who ran onto the playing surface from the Sky Sports set.

The pair then exchanged several more passes before coming together for a handshake and an embrace. Carragher then revealed he and Richarlison had decided to make up.

Carragher said: "We're all mates, he apologised, so I accepted it. I said 'are you going to be a good boy today, is there any fighting or whatever?' And he replied by saying, 'no just football today'."

Fans loved the clip, with one Twitter user commenting: "That's the beauty of football." Someone else said: "Class." A third fan wrote: "I like stuff like this." While someone else added: "That s*** is funny."

However, Richarlison wasn't smiling at the end of the game as Spurs surrendered a 2-0 lead to lose 4-2 at the Etihad.

Second half goals from Julian Alvarez, Erling Haaland and a Riyad Mahrez did the damage for City, who closed the gap on Arsenal at the top of the Premier League.
