Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher didn't mince his words when describing his relationship with his former teammate Jose Enrique last night.

Carragher, who is now a pundit on SkySports, was speaking ahead of his former side's Monday night clash against Swansea.

Together with Gary Neville, they were discussing the relationship between defenders on the pitch whilst comparing and contrasting the difference in style between English and foreign defenders.

Speaking about the Reds, Spanish, left-back Enrique, he said: "I stopped talking to Enrique in the end, I had no idea what he was going to do and he didn't listen to me anyway."

It was in reference to the notion that the foreign style defenders go on the offensive far more than their English counterparts whilst the two pundits were debating what was best.

Carragher and the former Manchester United defender, Neville, had a number of debating points during the pre-match analysis.

It was all in a light-hearted nature but it made for great television viewing.

The two argued on who was better out of Paul Scholes, Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard; predictably both stuck up for their former teammates.

Neville claimed Scholes was one of the best in the world to which Carragher argued by asking why he wasn't played for England ahead of Lampard and Gerrard and why Sir Alex Ferguson felt the need to buy Juan Sebastien Veron.

In another highlight Carragher claimed that nobody wanted to be a full-back in their youth and that they were other "failed centre-backs or failed wingers" and that they end up in the position "by hook or by crook." 

All of this said in front of former right-back Neville as Carragher continued: "No youngster growing up wants to be the next Gary Neville"
