Jamie Carragher slams Jason Cundy for Jurgen Klopp-Brendan Rodgers comparison

Jamie Carragher and Jason Cundy don’t seem to get along.

The pair clashed earlier this year after Carragher took offence to Cundy’s negative view about Liverpool following their comeback win over Borussia Dortmund in the Europa League.

“Jason Cundy on @talkSPORT what a bitter man!” Carragher tweeted. “Shut up talking absolute sh*te!!”.

TalkSPORT invited the Liverpool legend onto the show to settle the matter with Cundy, but he only served to intensify the feud.

Carragher said that Chelsea, Cundy’s ex-team, haven’t got any history and mocked talkSPORT for having “25 listeners.”

Given that Cundy’s job is to talk football, and that he appears to have a problem with Liverpool, it was always going to be likely that he crossed paths with the former Liverpool defender again.

That moment arrived on September 16, after another Liverpool win.

This time it was over Cundy’s Chelsea. No wonder he was upset.

The talkSPORT presenter called Jurgen Klopp ‘Brendan Klopp’ and also said Liverpool’s defence has shown little signs of improvement since the German’s arrival in October 2015.

That following a 2-1 win for Liverpool at Stamford Bridge. Bitter much?

Carragher called talkSPORT

Carragher wasn’t happy with Cundy’s comments, phoning up to let rip.

“You have wound me up again," the former England defender said, per the Mirror. "I think it’s unfair, I’m not having a go at Brendan Rodgers, but they are different types of managers and play different ways.

“You look at the CV Jurgen has got, what he has done in Germany. He has been to a Champions League final. There’s no doubt he is a top class manager.

“This Premier League is full of them. Antonio Conte is another one, an A-class manager that most others would like.

"I think Jurgen Klopp falls into that category. He has something about him. There’s no doubt. You can see that in the big games - and obviously they have to win some of the smaller ones - but in the big games the difference that he has made."

Liverpool's title bid

Carragher also failed to rule out the possibility of Klopp’s team winning the title this season.

“Listen, you can ask me if you think Liverpool are going to win the league, I’d probably say no,” he added.

“But if you look back at the year they went for the title under Brendan Rodgers it was a similar situation. Everybody thought they’d be going for the top four and that season they had no Europe. I think that is going to have a massive impact.

“I think the way Liverpool play, high intensity, we’ve all questioned if they can do in England for a full season. But you have a much better chance with no Europe.

“I think they have got a great chance of finishing in the top four, but who knows? Especially with that extra rest the players have.”

Is Jason Cundy simply trolling, or is Liverpool's defence no better than it was 12 months ago? Let us know in the comments section below!
