Luis Garcia is one of those former Liverpool players who will always be welcomed back to Anfield with open arms.

The former Spain international, who retired from professional football last year, spent three seasons with the Reds and ended up winning the FA Cup, the UEFA Super Cup and, of course, the UEFA Champions League in 2005.

It was Garcia who scored *that* infamous ’Ghost Goal’ against Chelsea and for that reason alone he’ll always hold a special place in the hearts of the Liverpool supporters.

The 39-year-old has been reminiscing over some of his Liverpool memories in recent days and he revealed the rather surprising information that he sought professional help because of his teammate at the time, Jamie Carragher.

Allow him to explain.

Garcia: I worked on blocking out Carragher's voice

“Carra would give me a lot of instruction out on the pitch,” Garcia was quoted as saying by the Liverpool Echo. “I used to mutter 'f**k off' under my breath when he yelled at me!

“Actually, I had to work with a sports psychologist to help me focus while I was at Liverpool and one of the things we worked on was trying to block out Carragher's voice!

“I'd still listen to him, but soon I didn't get as distracted by it.”

Carragher responds with superb tweet

After seeing the Echo’s story, Carragher posted a superb reply on Twitter.

“I hope he said ‘Well stop losing the f*****g ball Luis & you'll be fine!’” Carragher responded, much to the amusement of his followers.

Garcia then replied to Carragher’s tweet.

“‘Lucho...Carra is right, lad!! but , he losses as many balls as you, so…’ That's what he said 😉 !!“

Nice little comeback there, Luis.

And it earned the seal of approval from Carragher, who gave the Spaniard’s tweet a retweet.


Garcia: Carragher wasn't a fan of my hair band

Back to the interview and Garcia also reveals that Carragher wasn’t a fan of his hair band. Shock.

“He didn't need to say anything because his expression just screamed 'What the f**k?'” Garcia added.

“Rafa wasn't too happy either. One day there was myself, Harry Kewell and Milan Baros all standing in front of the mirror, putting on our hair bands.

“Baros was using his hairspray as well! That didn't go down well either, with Carra or Rafa.”

They don’t make them like Carragher any more.
