Retired Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher shared a surprising tweet late on Thursday night in which he criticised the owners of Liverpool, Manchester United and Arsenal.

John W Henry became the principal owner of Liverpool in October 2010 after wrestling the club from the poisonous grip of Tom Hicks and George Gillett alongside Fenway Sports Group [FSG].

In their seven years in charge, Liverpool have only won one trophy - a League Cup under Kenny Dalglish in 2012.

Currently 9th in the table following a 4-1 defeat by Tottenham, the Reds are still some way from winning their first ever Premier League title.

FSG paid £300m in 2010 and there were reports coming out of Dubai on Thursday that the Liverpool owners rejected a massive bid of £1.5bn for the club.

They are hoping to secure planning permission for a new £50million training ground in Kirkby and are considering options to redevelop the Anfield Road End of the club's stadium - which would increase capacity to beyond 60,000.

Carragher played under Henry and FSG for three years but he made his feelings known about his former boss on Twitter.

Now a respected pundit on Sky Sports, the former England international criticised FSG after the sacking of Brendan Rodgers in 2015.

“They’ve made a lot of decisions since they’ve come, that haven’t worked," said Carragher.

Carragher highlighted the appointment, then sackings of Damien Comolli and Kenny Dalglish, as well as the failings of the transfer committee.

“At this moment the owners of the football club’s track record in making decisions for Liverpool Football Club over the last two or three years has not been good enough. It’s miles off.”

Carragher fires shots on Twitter

The former Liverpool defender is clearly no fan of the current Liverpool owner and his tweet on Thursday night suggests he feels disenfranchised by modern football.

He tweeted a poorly photoshopped image of the Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool owners at dinner together.

Carragher suggested none of them are even interested in winning the Premier League, with money their only ambition.

The 39-year-old outspoken Scouser is unlikely to become an employee at Liverpool FC with Henry at the helm.
