Everton boss Marco Silva insists he doesn’t support Richarlison’s antics after the player got the marching order from the referee for headbutting Adam Smith of Bournemouth.
Everton wasted a golden chance to claim three points as Bournemouth staged a late fightback to share the spoils. Theo Walcott and Michael Keane were on target for the Toffees while Joshua King and Nathan Ake helped the home side to finish the game on a positive note.
It seems Everton players have made a habit of creating a ruckus on the pitch as earlier Phil Jagielka saw a straight red against Wolves on the very first match of their campaign which also finished 2-2.
The gaffer has cautioned the player not to get provoked by anyone. “To be clear, it’s [the red card] something Richarlison or the other players in our squad cannot do.
“It’s something I don’t like to see, and at this level even if you’re 18, 19, 20, 33 you have to keep your emotional balance there, keep your mentality as well.
“If someone provokes you or not, if the fans are against you or not you have to keep that.
“It looks minimum the contact, I’m not one to talk about the referee’s decision.
“What I can tell you is about my players and I don’t like them to do that.”
