Thiago eventually got up from Richarlison’s red-card tackle and created the opening for a late disallowed goal by Jordan Henderson but later reported an injury."Everyone who knows my background knows that I was never a violent player," Richarlison said in a statement
here, blaming his heavy lunge on"sheer over-dedication".“I did not enter that dispute with the intention of hurting Thiago... I already sent a message to him apologising and I also do it here publicly. I hope he hasn’t been hurt and that everything is fine.”
Liverpool’s Dutch defender Virgil van Dijk was taken off with an injury early in the game following a wild tackle from Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp said Van Dijk was “not good” and described Pickford’s actions as “not a challenge the keeper can do.”
Henderson said the England goalkeeper, who went unpunished after the incident, was sorry for his actions.“Everyone keeps asking us about it so I’m guessing it’s a red card. It mustn’t be a good challenge,” Henderson told BT Sport. “To be fair, Jordan came up and apologised to me after the game and (told me) to tell Virgil.”
