Jamie Carragher involved in heated row with angry Liverpool fan after calling out player

Jamie Carragher involved in heated row with angry Liverpool fan after calling out player

They exchanged messages over X, formerly Twitter.

Jamie Carragher exchanged heated words with a Liverpool fan after Jurgen Klopp's side returned to the Premier League summit with a 3-1 win over Sheffield United.

Goals from Darwin Nunez, Alexis Mac Allister and Cody Gakpo sealed all three points for the Reds on Thursday – a result that sees them go two points clear of Arsenal in the title race.

In terms of those who found the back of the net at Anfield, many seen the third and final goal as a much-needed one for Gakpo, who has come under fire for his performances of late.

Last month, the Netherlands international was criticised during Liverpool's FA Cup defeat against Manchester United, with Jamie Carragher taking aim at the second-half substitute.

Taking to X, formerly Twitter, he wrote: "Gakpo plays like the game is in slow motion."

More than two weeks later and Carragher's comments about the former PSV Eindhoven forward resurfaced after X user @BackseatsmanLFC [Barry] quote-tweeted the post.

Here's how the argument played out.

Barry: "F*** Carra for this btw. Yeah he wasn't saying anything that fans weren't but the difference is his opinion gets back to the players. Salah bigged up Gakpo pre-match and Mac did the same post-match. Could see it weighing heavily on him during his celebration too. So unnecessary."

Carragher: "Pundit gives an opinion on a player that most people agree with. It wasn’t even that bad, he does need to be quicker in possession but has done great in terms of goals. In future I won’t speak about any LFC player in case it gets back to them!! F*** you Barry [laughing face emoji]."

Barry: "Club legend loses his head after a horrible loss and tweets something out that he is more than aware will incite abuse towards a specific player is how I'd have framed it. Thankfully Twitter wasn't around for Alan Hansen to tweet his thoughts after that game vs United in 99/00!"

Carragher: "I’m sure my tweet was while the game was still going on and I was making a valid point, not reacting after a defeat! Your tweets about me are much more abusive than mine to Gakpo, how do you think that makes me feel the next time I do a show."

Barry: "I am sorry that the tweet got back to you, I sometimes underestimate the influence of brand Barry. Hopefully Neville does what Gakpo's teammates felt necessary to do and comes out to publicly support you [praying emoji]."

Carragher: "I don’t need that, I’ll take the criticism on the chin and prove you and my other critics wrong!"

Ahead of Thursday's win against Sheffield United, Mohamed Salah suggested Liverpool teammate Gakpo does not always get the praise he deserves from supporters.

When asked who he thinks is the most underrated Liverpool player, Salah said: "I will say Cody, but I don’t know if the fans agree.”
