Sky Sports, The Daily Mail, Football365, The Mirror and The Sun, amongst other news sources, reported a surprising quote from Jamie Carragher following his testimonial. The man the fans call ‘Mr Liverpool’ revealed he’d always dreamed of scoring against Liverpool (obviously forgetting the numerous own goals he has to his name, including two in one game for United).
When asked why he took a penalty for Everton in his testimonial, he replied: “I don’t score too often, but I actually wanted the first penalty to be for Michael Owen to score. I’d totally forgot people would want me to take it. As for the second penalty, as an Everton fan as a kid I’ve always dreamed about scoring against Liverpool so that is why I did that.”
Funnily enough, the official Liverpool site didn’t want to publish these comments, so completely changed what Carragher actually said.
