EVERTON star Richarlison has been branded a CLOWN by Inter Milan ace Arturo Vidal after Brazil’s victory against Chile.
The Toffees forward shared a meme trolling Chile before Vidal hit back by editing one of Richarlison’s pictures to make him look like a clown.

The feud started when Brazil knocked Chile out of the Copa America on home soil before going on to lose the final to Argentina.
Shortly after Chile’s defeat, Vidal took to Instagram to write: “See us in Chile but without help.”
The midfielder was referring to the Thursday night’s World Cup qualifier between the two nations in Santiago, the capital of Chile.
Vidal’s comments were not forgotten and when Brazil won the qualifier 1-0 thanks to a goal from winger Everton Ribeiro, they resurfaced.
Brazilian outlet TNT Sports shared the comments on Instagram and Richarlison noticed, replying: “Se busca…”
That roughly translates to ‘wanted’ and the Everton forward went on to share TNT Sports’ post on his Insta story with the eyes emoji.

But Vidal was not going to let him get the last laugh and edited a picture of Richarlison, putting a huge clown emoji over his face.
The post was captioned: “And this clown who knows him.”
Regardless of who won the spat between Vidal and Richarlison, Brazil are certainly winning on the pitch.
Tite’s side have won all seven of their World Cup qualifiers to sit top of the South American group on 21 points.
Chile, meanwhile, are in danger of missing out on a second successive World Cup after picking up just six points from their first seven games.
The top four nations in South America automatically qualify for the tournament, with the team in fifth progressing to a play-off.
