Jamie Carragher addresses elephant in the room during Martin Odegaard interview after Sheffield United rout

Jamie Carragher addresses elephant in the room during Martin Odegaard interview after Sheffield United rout

He addressed the elephant in the room.

Monday Night Football saw Jamie Carragher and Martin Odegaard share a joke about the Sky Sports pundit’s February Arsenal rant.

Odegaard was among the Gunners’ star performers in a 6-0 rout of Sheffield United, with the Norwegian having opened the scoring inside the opening five minutes.

After the game, the Gunners skipper was interviewed about the performance by Arsenal icon Thierry Henry and Carragher.

At the end of a lengthy interview, Carragher joked about Arsenal’s celebrations after last month’s 3-1 victory over Liverpool. At the time, Odegaard’s decision to take pictures of the post-match scenes on the pitch drew the ire of Carragher.

Speaking on Monday night, Carragher said: “Martin, it was a fantastic performance by yourself and a great win for the team. I just didn't see the photographer on the pitch. Is he in the dressing room?”

Grinning, the Arsenal playmaker said: “I was waiting for you to say something! I was too scared to [take a photo] today, so I went straight inside today!”

Back in February, Carragher aired his frustration at Odegaard's celebrations against Liverpool during a Sky Sports broadcast.

He said: “Just get down the tunnel. You've won a game, three points, you've been brilliant. Back in the title race, get down the tunnel. I'm serious, honestly.”

Later that evening, the former Liverpool defender captioned the incident on X, formally Twiter: “By all means enjoy it, but enjoy it by being disciplined!”

After Arsenal’s 6-0 demolition, Carragher only had praise for Mikel Arteta’s men, while he ripped into Sheffield United’s performances.

“I think that was a disgrace. In terms of a half football, I think it's one of the most one-sided games I've ever seen,” Carragher said.

“I think it said that you've come into this game on the back of losing two home games 5-0 in the Premier League conceding five against Brighton.

“I mean, that's shocking. I mean, it really is and as I said, I've never seen, it's probably one of the worst performances I've ever seen.

“I can't think of anything worse I've ever seen in a half of football.”
