England: a former English footballer criticized Messi for his move to PSG and the Flea responded

“He told me it was a donkey.” With that phrase, and laughing, the former English footballer Jamie Carragher (today a commentator for the Sky Sports network) recalled a private message from Instagram that Lionel Messi I send him. It was after Carragher, a former central defender remembered for his time in Liverpool, said that the Flea “was not a great reinforcement for PSG” in the program Monday Night Football.

And I got a private message on Instagram! From Messi in person! I’m not going to show private messages in public, but basically he told me I was a donkey,” said the commentator at the foot of the Vicarage Road playing field, the Watford, after the match that they played this Friday for the Premier League the home team and Norwich, and in which the visitor won 3-0.

Both Carragher and his fellow broadcasters began to laugh. The former defender continued with his story, almost jokingly. “So Messi watches Monday Night Football, so maybe he watches this show too, Friday Night Football,” he enthused. And he spoke to the captain of the Argentine national team, as if he were in front of him: “Lionel, I love you. You are the best player of all time. And compared to you, I was a donkey.” admitted Carragher, known much more for his mettle and his character on the court than for his talent.

In effect, instead of Rosario appears the Egyptian Mohamed Salah, Liverpool footballer, Carragher’s club. The former defender, then, did not miss the opportunity: “You are not in the team of the year. You haven’t played well enough, despite having won the Copa America. That’s not enough to leave ‘my’ player: Mohamed Salah out of the team”, completed Carragher, who was also not in favor of Cristiano Ronaldo’s return to Manchester United.
