Jamie Carragher Shuts Down Micah Richards With Devastating Champions League Dig

Jamie Carragher shut down Micah Richards with a perfectly timed dig as he explained why Liverpool would win the Champions League.

Carra went all Mystic Meg on CBS Sports as he listed a series of omens - from Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo exiting before the quarter-finals to the final being in Istanbul - as to why this year was a mirror of 2005, and would therefore end in LFC triumph.

"I can just feel it, serial winners of the Champions League," said Carragher, before a doubtful Richards cut in: "Feel what? What can you feel?"

"It's just something in your body - you wouldn't know, you've never won the Champions League," said Carragher, casually reducing Richards to rubble.

Or, at least, it him to reduced gales of laughter - which is the former Manchester City defender's natural state.

"Touche! I'll just go now shall I?" said Richards, as he began to get up from his chair.

At least the panel gave Richards vocal sympathy, while Carragher cackled.

The Liverpool centre-back was on the pitch in 2005 when his club famously came back from 3-0 down against AC Milan to level the final at 3-3, then triumph on penalties. He also played in the final two years later when Liverpool lost 2-1 to the same opponents.

Fellow defender Richards played in the competition for Manchester City but never came close to the final.

However he does boast a Premier League victory from City's 2011/2 season, the title which eluded Carragher throughout his long and largely successful Liverpool career.

So if Richards wants to start casually plotting revenge, we recommend him accidentally bringing his Premier League winner's medal to the studio when he's next on with the Liverpool man.
