Jamie Carragher has admitted today that he is jealous of Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs for all the success they’ve had with United. Carragher’s best moment for Liverpool was winning the European Cup, but our legends have done that twice. Liverpool haven’t won the league since 1990, when Carragher was just 12-years-old old, whilst Giggs has 12 league winners medals whilst Scholes has 10.
“I’d love to have won the league for Liverpool as it’s been so long,” he said. “But were we ever really good enough? We never threw it away. There was always someone better than us. These players who say, ‘Oh, I’ve won the league three times.’ They’ve been at Chelsea or United but they’re not a regular. They play all over the place, they come in, they go out. I could do that. I could do that for Chelsea or United, not a problem. But I’ve been one of the main players for Liverpool, winning the European Cup, winning the Cup treble. OK, I’m probably jealous of Giggs and Scholes and their titles and European Cups. But I played for my team my whole life and I’ve been one of the main players in what we’ve done. I could have won the league going somewhere else and just playing 25 games. I’m good enough to have won the league. I’m not trying to sound big-headed but more often than not we’ve had one of the best defensive records each season.”
