The recent clash between Richarlison and Gabriel during Arsenal’s win at Tottenham has sparked controversy. After Richarlison’s physical threat up front helped Spurs get two goals back, a moment soon after he entered the fray left Gabriel on the floor and earned the forward a yellow card.

A Tottenham fan posted a video of the collision on social media, leading to Richarlison reposting the clip and taunting his compatriot. Despite emerging as one of the league’s top defenders, Gabriel has earned just six caps for Brazil while Richarlison has played for Brazil 48 times and scored 20 goals. The two players could be seen confronting each other on the pitch at full-time, with Gabriel and his Arsenal team-mates celebrating their win.

There has been talk of extending Gabriel’s contract, given his impressive performances. Despite initial doubts, he has proven to be indispensable under Arteta. However, when the Brazilian national team reconvenes this summer, Richarlison’s social media activity may lead to an awkward reunion of the two stars.

They could have plenty to say after the on-field incident and subsequent social media activity. The potential for an awkward reunion is heightened as Gabriel is likely to be named in the upcoming international tournament alongside Richarlison, following his withdrawal from the March squad for friendlies.
