Tottenham Hotspur have aimed a subtle dig at Callum Wilson following comments made about Richarlison.

Tottenham Hotspur have aimed a subtle dig at Newcastle United forward Callum Wilson for comments made previously about Richarlison.

The Magpies striker came off the bench for the final 30 minutes of the 4-1 defeat at Tottenham in which Richarlison scored twice. Wilson previously mocked Richarlison's record of being booked three times for celebrating disallowed Spurs goals which got a reaction out of the Brazilian.

Last season, Richarlison popped up as a topic of discussion for Callum Wilson and Michail Antonio on the Footballer’s Football Podcast. Speaking about the Brazilian, Antonio said: “He's scored four times this season. Three of the times he's been offside [and] he's taken his top off four times this season.”

Wilson, who ended the previous campaign having scored 18 goals in the Premier League, then added: “He's got four yellows – he's almost on a suspension."

Richarlison hit back at the comments on TikTok, posting a response to a video of Wilson and Antonio: "How many goals do both have in the World Cup?"

The 26-year-old scored twice on Sunday as Spurs beat Newcastle 4-1 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Afterwards, Tottenham made a subtle reference to Wilson's comments by posting a photo of Richarlison's head edited onto the body of Michael Jordan with the basketball icon's famous quote from The Last Dance: "And I took that personally."

Richarlison's brace was his first in the Premier League for Spurs and his first two goals scored for the club with his feet. The win keeps Spurs fifth in the Premier League while Newcastle are four points behind in seventh following back-to-back defeats.
