Dejan Kulusevski sends Richarlison bizarre Tottenham message with Ronaldo comparison


Tottenham's stars were unsurprisingly jolly after coming from behind to beat Sheffield United 2-1 on Saturday. Goals in both the 98th and 100th minutes saw a remarkable late turnaround for Ange Postecoglou's men, extending their unbeaten start to the league season to five games.

It's the first time in Spurs' history that they've taken 13 points from a possible 15 to get things going and speaks of the massive mentality shift at the club. Ange Postecoglou's celebrations with the adoring fans at full-time just enhanced his reputation and standing.

Heading into the north London derby with Arsenal next week there is a strong sense of positivity at the club and that has stretched over to social media as well. Following on from the joyous scenes after Dejan Kulusevski's dramatic winner, he has taken to Instagram to relay his feelings.

In a somewhat confusing message, he wrote: "Richy [Richarlison] u forgot Sheffield?" Alongside a picture of the pair, the two goalscorers and matchwinners, was an image of their celebrations after the goal and after the game. Although the post doesn't seem to make much sense, Eric Dier offered a response of equally confusing nature.

The Englishman wrote: "Metabolic Man," meanwhile Richarlison himself replied with three smiling face emojs. Brennan Johnson, who went on to describe the party-like feeling in the dressing room afterwards, responded: "Dekiiiiii [heart eyes emoji]"

The Welshman, who came on in the second half in an attempt to force a result, was asked just what it was like in the home changing room. “Yeah it’s a good place right now, everyone’s so excited and I think more we deserved it [the win] to be honest,” he explained.

“We weren’t at our best for the first half and maybe the first 60 minutes, but we showed them sniffs we can get chances and create stuff. Even if it goes to the last minute and it’s still got to be a 110-minute performance and we showed that today.”

Although Johnson didn't get the chance to get his first goal for Spurs, he was present to witness just the second one in Richarlisons' league career with the club. It couldn't have come at a better time either as he nodded in from a corner to spark the comeback.

In a week that has centred around his mental wellbeing and performances, the Brazilian responded in the best way possible and was glad to get his 50th Premier League goal having been stuck in the late 40s since moving from Everton. "50 times on @premierleague [hands up emoji, football emoji]" he wrote afterwards.

Davinson Sanchez responded with "My cute pigeon [heart eyes emoji, red heart emoji]," whilst Emerson Royal said: "Pombooooo [red heart emoji]." New club Son Heung-Min also had a message for the fans and the team.

The 31-year-old wrote: "You the supporters helped push us over the line today. What a mentality and fight from the boys… Come on you Spurs!!! [white heart emoji]." Pedro Porro responded with a one word message of "Captain [swords crossed emoji, white heart emoji]" while Richarlison reposted the image of he and Son celebrating together.

Porro himself put up a specific post after the game of: "Better late that neverrrr !!! @spursofficial [smile emoji, white heart emoji] #COYS." His defensive partner Micky van der Ven responded: "Pedro porroooooooo" and Manor Solomon wrote "Pedrito [two heart eyes emojis]."

James Maddison would also take to Instagram to call Richarlison a 'game changer' while Lucas Moura sent his congratulations along with Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg. His message was simply "R9 [red heart emoji]" and is perhaps made even better by the use of that name to Brazil's great striker Ronaldo Nazario de Lima.

It's been a while since Tottenham players have been able to enjoy themselves this much and it's clear that they're loving every moment of it.
