Aaron Ramsdale, the goalie for Arsenal, has revealed on The Fellas podcast what he said to Richarlison, the forward for Tottenham Hotspur, following the North London derby.
“Richarlison, erm. Basically he lost the game, which was fair enough and he didn’t take to my celebrating, which actually, I didn’t do too much. There’s a lot of people who score and take their shirts off and do all sorts.” He said on The Fellas podcast.
The 24-year-old continued by disclosing what he and Richarlison had exchanged during their altercation.
He basically simply said, “No, no, no, go over there,” gesturing in the direction of our Arsenal supporters. Then I just said, “I’m getting my towel and my water bottle,” Ramsdale said.
“He was pointing at me in my face, that’s just after the game and I don’t think he should have done it but at the same time I could see why, he thought I was winding the fans up and that.”
Ten days ago, the Gunners defeated their fierce rivals 2-0 thanks to an outstanding first-half performance.
Arsenal led Tottenham by two goals at the break thanks to goals from Martin Odegaard and Hugo Lloris.
Ramsdale, who was named Man of the Match, prevented Spurs from getting back into the game in the second half.
After the final horn, though, there were some unpleasant scenes when Richarlison and Ramsdale got into a fight.
Following their separation, Ramsdale kissed the Arsenal badge in front of the home crowd before being kicked by a Spurs fan.
