Ahead of the highly anticipated match between Liverpool and Arsenal, former footballer Micah Richards dug up an old clip of Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher in action against the Gunners. The clip showed Carragher being bamboozled by Arsenal hero Thierry Henry, who scored a stunning solo goal in a 4-2 win over Liverpool at Highbury in 2004. Richards jokingly commented on Carragher’s body position during the play, which left Carragher stumbling and taking Igor Biscan out of the game as well. Carragher’s only defence was that it was against the greatest player to ever play in the Premier League. However, Manchester United legend Roy Keane was quick to chime in with a brutal one-word put down, describing Carragher’s defending as “shocking”. The exchange left Richards and Carragher in stitches and football fans chuckling at Carragher’s expense.
The banter between Richards, Carragher, and Keane is a common occurrence on Sky Sports, where the three former footballers regularly provide analysis and commentary on Premier League matches. Their chemistry and witty remarks have made them a fan favourite among football enthusiasts.
