Jamie Carragher was involved in a row with former Chelsea player Jason Cundy live on talkSPORT following Liverpool’s dramatic victory over Borussia Dortmund in the Europa League on Thursday night.

The former defender, who was at Anfield to watch the quarter-final second leg, was listening to the radio station on his way back home when he took offence to Cundy’s negativity.

“Jason Cundy on @talkSPORT what a bitter man!” Carragher tweeted. “Shut up talking absolute sh*te!!”. He then accepted talkSPORT’s invitation to discuss the matter live on air with Cundy.

Carragher, sounding perturbed by Cundy’s post-match reaction, explained why the talkSPORT presenter was wrong to be saying things like ‘Liverpool are living in the past’ on such a memorable night.

The Sky Sports pundit also took a dig at Chelsea, claiming the west London outfit "haven’t got any" history, and added he was “gutted” when the Blues won the 2012 Champions League final in Munich.

Carragher blasts Cundy live on radio

"The Premier League has nothing to do with tonight. You said something about Liverpool fans living in the past, what has that got to do with tonight?" Carragher told Cundy, per the Liverpool Echo.

"You’ve got to (have a) respect for Liverpool, it’s a special night and not many clubs can have a night like that. We’re very lucky. Even if you don’t like Liverpool, you have to accept that.

"Tonight wasn’t the night to talk about things like that.

"Tonight is the night to talk about the atmosphere, a great comeback. It was an unbelievable night.

"The story is the unbelievable comeback. Klopp has done brilliantly since he has come in, he hasn’t got a great squad.

"Listen, you don’t like Liverpool, Jason. Let’s be honest. You were quite wound up that Liverpool fans were coming on, ringing up and enjoying it. And instead of just taking it, taking the medicine for tonight, you just couldn’t help yourself!"

Carragher ended phone call with a zinger

Fortunately, the phone call ended on an amusing note.

“If we wind you up enough, can we get you back on after the semi-final?” Andy Goldstein asked the retired centre-back.

“Not a problem mate,” Carragher replied, “I will continue to be one of your 25 listeners.”
