Liverpool legend and Sky sports pundit, Jamie Carragher claims both Leicester City and Liverpool should bow their head in shame following Leicester City’s 3-1 win over Liverpool at the King Power stadium yesterday.
The Foxes beat the Reds 3-1 thanks to a brace from Jamie Vardy, his first goal in almost three months and a first goal of the season for Danny Drinkwater after he volleyed what can be a goal of the season contender to beat Simon Mignolet in post for Liverpool.
Leicester City first game since manager, Claudio Ranieri was given the exit and was an impressive performance from the champions as they seek to survive relegation but Carragher despite admitting that his former club was lacklustre and Leicester City brilliant on the day, he was furious why the Foxes did not show the same commitment under their former manager, Claudio Ranieri.
The Liverpool legend retraited; “Leicester were brilliant, absolutely superb tonight”. “But they have won the game by energy, closing people down, being horrible and being difficult to play against. “That’s not tactics, that’s not having great players. That’s having something inside you. It is right that they are asked questions because it wasn’t as though we were suddenly seeing 11 fantastic footballers, we were just seeing a team fully committed”.
“I’ve been watching football for a very, very long time and I don’t think I’ve ever seen a game of football where two teams should come off the pitch and hang their heads in shame – Liverpool for how bad they were and Leicester for how good they were on the back of how poor they’ve been, just through effort and commitment”. “We saw Jamie Vardy going down on the floor exhausted, but more through relief they’d got that win because they’ve been battered”. “I’ve been a big part of that and that still doesn’t change it for me. In some ways it may even reinforce that they haven’t done enough for Claudio Ranieri.”
Leicester City moves to 15th on the PL table after that 3-1 success over the Reds.
