A brilliant video has been picked up by the pitch side cameras at Saturday’s dramatic 1-1 draw at Anfield, showing Matt Ritchie’s passionate reaction to Callum Wilson’s disallowed goal.
Just as our top scorer is reeling is reeling away to celebrate, Ritchie can be heard shouting “lads, this is ******* teamwork! GET IN THERE!” before jumping on his teammates.
As we all know, the stoppage time goal was chalked off by VAR for a ‘handball’, but justice was done when Joe Willock popped up with a 95th minute equaliser!
Watch Ritchie’s brilliant reaction to the Wilson goal that never was below:
He may not be our captain or even our vice captain in Jamaal Lascelles’ absence, but there’s little doubt Ritchie is one of our leaders both on and off the pitch.
The determined winger turned wing-back is one of the most vocal players in the squad, always gives his all and has proven he isn’t finished at Premier League level in recent weeks, with his return helping us to two wins and a couple of draws in our last four games.
He certainly doesn’t look like a man who has been pushing for a return down south just a few months ago!
