Carragher and Ferdinand recall roastings from former Arsenal and Man City stars

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher swaps football stories with former Man United man Rio Ferdinand

Jamie Carragher and Rio Ferdinand are two of the best defenders in the Premier League history.

However, the Liverpool and Manchester United legends had their forgettable moments in their respective red and white shirts throughout long careers for club and country.

The Queens Park Rangers defender tweeted his thoughts on Chelsea’s ruthless performances throughout the season as they beat Leicester last night, which caught Carragher’s attention.

The former England international went on to regal tales of their defensive mishaps during their decorated careers, although Carragher was rather more forthcoming.

Carragher recalled what we can only assume is Liverpool’s 4-2 defeat by Arsenal at Highbury in 2004 which saw Thierry Henry score a hat-trick against Rafael Benitez’s side.

And the Liverpool legend cheekily reminded Ferdinand of his famous mistake in the Manchester derby which teed up Craig Bellamy at Old Trafford in September 2009.

But the pair found common ground when discussing the luxuries afforded to No10s.
