Jamie Carragher responds to Jose Mourinho criticism as stinging quotes resurface after Kate Abdo comment

Jamie Carragher responds to Jose Mourinho criticism as stinging quotes resurface after Kate Abdo comment

Carragher has responded to Mourinho's criticism.

Jamie Carragher has responded to Jose Mourinho quotes that resurfaced days after the pundit made a controversial comment about Kate Abdo.

Carragher caused controversy when he made a comment about CBS host Kate Abdo during live coverage of Arsenal's Champions League match against Porto on Tuesday.

As part of a tongue-in-cheek exchange that saw Carragher wear an Arsenal shirt, the former Liverpool star suggested that Abdo is not faithful to her fiancee.

Carragher began laughing at his own joke while Thierry Henry and Micah Richards were stunned into silence before Abdo replied: "Why would you even say that?"

Abdo played down the incident live on air the following evening, but in the days since, footage has emerged that many fans have found rather relevant.

During a press conference in 2015, then-Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho hit out at Carragher, who at the time was in the early years of his punditry career.

"Jamie Carragher talks too much for someone who isn’t even among the top 1,000 defenders in football history," Mourinho said.

"How can someone who never won the Premier [League] talk about what it takes to win the Premier [League]?"

Now, Carragher has responded to the old footage that has started doing the rounds on social media.

The pundit responded to the video on X: "I'm currently trying to get him to come on MNF [Sky Sports' Monday Night Football]!"

On Wednesday, Abdo calmed the situation with a classy piece to camera in which she admitted Carragher’s comments had "gone too far" but stressed she had been apologised to.

On Carragher, Abdo said: "the middle child [who has] the chip on his shoulder, capable of saying anything for attention". She continued: "Does he go too far sometimes? Absolutely. Does he apologise? Yes he does. But all of us have that one annoying family member that we still love and accept."
