The fallout from Newcastle United’s defeat to Tottenham Hotspur is still ongoing.

Guglielmo Vicario has posted a response to Callum Wilson’s post-match comments on Sunday evening. Wilson, who came onto the pitch with his side 3-0 down shortly after the hour mark, blasted the Spurs goalkeeper for a perceived ‘lack of respect’ at the end of the game, accusing him of ‘pulling faces’ after denying his goalbound header.

Speaking to Sky Sports in the aftermath of their 4-1 defeat, Wilson said: “There’s a way to win isn’t there? I think we seen it in the week when Everton were winning and Pickford was messing around. The goalkeeper [Vicario], when I went for a header, was there pulling faces. It’s just a lack of respect I thought. I’ve said my piece, we’re grown men and we will move on.”

Wilson’s comments have gained a great deal of traction on social media since Sunday and has led to Viacrio posting a response on Instagram. A story posted by Vicario showed Wilson and the keeper arguing with each other alongside a message from Vicario reading: ‘Respect is given… to everyone that respects me!’.

This reaction from Vicario comes after Spurs also aimed a cheeky dig at Wilson on social media after the game. In that, the official Tottenham Hotspur account posted a photo of Richarlison, who scored a brace on Sunday against the Magpies, with the caption ‘and I took that personally’.

The photo, which was inspired by a quote from Michael Jordan’s iconic quote from The Last Dance, referenced comments Wilson had previously made about the Brazilian on the Footballer’s Football Podcast.
