‘He’s not made a great start’ – Jamie Carragher has head in his hands and calls Todd Boehly ‘incredibly arrogant’ as Chelsea owner suggests Premier League All-Star game

    Jamie Carragher’s reaction summed up how many people felt after Todd Boehly’s recent suggestions.

    The new Chelsea owner pitched the idea of a Premier League All-Star game, like they do in American sports.

    This has been met with plenty of ridicule, with Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp even giving a sarcastic response.

    Carragher had his head in his hands while discussing those left-field proposals and felt it was arrogant of Boehly to be attempting to shake up the Premier League already.

    Speaking on CBS, the Liverpool legend said: “I’ll be honest with you. When I look at that statement, I think it’s incredible arrogant to speak about a league you don’t know.

    “I don’t think we should ever discount ideas. The Premier League is an international league with owners, managers and players. That’s what makes it the best.

    When asked if he would like an All-Star game, Carragher said: “No. I don’t particularly like those ideas, but to come and speak like that when he’s not even proved he can run a Premier League club well yet. He’s sacked a manager after three game and spending £250million. 

    “Straight away that’s not right. He’s not made a great start and to speak like that when you’ve been somewhere for six weeks and to talk about how you are going to ‘bring what we do in American sports’.

    “I just think how the American public would feel if an English Premier League football owner then went to the NFL and said ‘we do this in the Premier League’. It would be incredibly arrogant to speak like that.

    “Maybe if he’s coming with ideas to improve the league. Listen, there’s nothing wrong with ideas. But I don’t think many people agree with them.

    “To speak like that when you’ve only been in the country for a short time, he hasn’t even proven he’s a good owner of Chelsea.”
