Steven Gerrard Accuses Gary Neville Of 'Robbing' Jamie Carragher Off Him In Hilarious Interview

Steven Gerrard has hilariously accused Gary Neville of "robbing" Jamie Carragher from him.

Although they were bitter rivals as players, Neville and Carragher have become the most entertaining punditry duo in the business and regularly produce the goods on Sky Sports.

They go back and forth on screen and on Twitter and it's quite clear that the pair have actually struck up an unlikely friendship since they began working with one another.

And it seems as though Gerrard, Carragher's long-time Liverpool teammate who he shared the 2005 Champions League triumph with, is a little jealous.

In a new Sky Sports interview, Gerrard picked Carragher out as his most famous friend.

But the Aston Villa manager proceeded to call out Neville for stealing his mate.

"Jamie Carragher in your world, he’s flying, smashing the punditry, top player, he’s on Gogglebox now, he’s singing - everything that’s going he’s doing so he’s probably my most famous friend now," Gerrard said.

"Gary Neville’s new brother, he’s flying, people can’t get enough of him, he doesn’t even phone me anymore, doesn’t text me, nothing. I don’t even see him.

“Gary Neville has robbed him off me, we used to be tight, man, but he’s robbed him off me, imagine that – imagine Gary Neville robbing your mate!

"I’m going to have to improve my banter aren’t I!”

Carragher reposted the video on his official Twitter and also reacted with a handshake picture of he and Gerrard that looked straight out of The Office.

Carragher and Neville played together at England but weren't particularly close - mainly because of their club rivalry.

These days they enjoy a drink after their TV work and are in frequent conversation over the phone.

'We were put together and I wouldn't say we had much a relationship before that," Carragher said of their relationship when speaking to Granada Reports.

"As players we mixed at England but not too much, I wouldn't say. But now we do, we're never off the phone to each other!"

Carragher might just have lost one potential new mate as seven-time Ballon d'Or winner Lionel Messi insulted him over Instagram DM.


On last night's Friday Night Football, Carragher revealed Messi had basically called him a "donkey" for criticising him when he signed for Paris Saint-Germain.
