Everton coach gives message to Richarlison after discussion with teammates over penalty

Everton’s 2-0 victory, over the brighton at Premier League ended up marked by an argument between Richarlison and his teammates at the time of the penalty that ended up converted by Dominic Calvert-Lewin and defined the score this Saturday.

“On the penalty, (Calvert-Lewin) is the main batsman. Richardison knows he’s second. The main thing is that we scored and we won. We have to compete in practice to see who is the best, but at the moment Dominic is the main batsman,” he said.

The move came at 11 minutes into the second half, when Everton was already winning 1-0, after a goal scored by Demarai Gray. Richarlison had to be calmed down by his teammates, especially compatriot Allan, after the penalty kick.
