Javi Gracia has revealed the conversation he had with Richarlison after Watford's 2-2 draw with Everton in the Premier League on Monday evening.
Gracia managed Richarlison during the second half of the 2017/18 season at Watford, but failed to get the best out of the Brazilian who didn't manage to find the back of the net whilst under the tutelage of the Spanish manager. Richarlison then left for Everton in the Summer, bringing his one year spell with the Hornets to an end.
Richarlison came back to haunt Watford on Monday, scoring Everton's first goal during the entertaining 2-2 draw at Goodison Park. That was also his eighth goal of the season - three more than managed to score during the entirety of the 2017/18 season.
Following the game, Gracia sought out Richarlison and appeared to have a few words his ear. When talking to the press, he revealed what he told the 21-year-old.
"It is offside." he bluntly stated.
