Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has responded to former Arsenal and Chelsea defender David Luiz after the Brazilian said it was “funny” that the former England international never won the Premier League before retiring from football.
Carragher frequently criticized Luiz when he played in the Premier League, but the 34-year-old center-back said he had “forgotten the past.”
Luiz, who now plays for Flamengo, recently said: “It’s funny, some people talk about how to win the Premier League, but they never won it.
“Jamie Carragher never won the Premier League.
“They talk and say, ‘This player is not suitable for this league.’
“However, I won the league. These people have forgotten the past. “
Reacting to the development, Carragher said he was “not bothered” by Luiz’s comments, adding that he would have no problem with the player if he saw him physically.
“David Luiz criticized me the other day in a newspaper, saying that I had not won the league because I would be critical of him as a player,” Carragher told the Tony Bellew is Angry podcast.
“And I have been critical of David Luiz, there is no doubt about that. Again, nothing personal.
“But he’s right, I haven’t won the league, so if that’s his comeback, that’s fine.
“We were completely different players and that’s why maybe I was more critical of him and maybe he wasn’t my cup of tea.
“But if I were to see him now, I wouldn’t have a problem just because he hit me.
“What I’ve learned is that the older you get, the less you care what people think or say about you.
“I mean, we don’t like criticism, but as you get older, you’re like ‘it doesn’t bother me.’
