Jamie Carragher was one of the big emblems of the Liverpool​ that conquered the Champions League in 2005. The central English was in Anfield all his career and finish turning into one of the big legends of the English group. It happened there 17 seasons and only the presence of the historical Steven Gerrard avoided that it was the first captain of the 'reds'. Nevertheless, it is a living myth of the team and all the fans has him in a pedestal.

The ex defender has one thousand anecdotes saved of his stage there and in 'Sky Sport' has explained one of which has agreed by fault of Michael Jordan. The one of Liverpool has seen recently the known documentary of the ex escort of the Chicago Bulls, 'The Last Dance', and has felt identified somehow with him. In him it speaks of the winning character of the '23' and of how hit with several mates along his career by this wish to compete and be the best.

It seems that Carragher understands it well, since he same lived in his meats what means to lose the nerves in this level of competitiveness. "Jordan is the best player of basketball, obviously am not near in the football of this. I am convinced that it put in a lot of jaleos sometimes with his mates of team because it approached a lot to the line. When you are so been mad about by something, pushes you to the line. And it is very difficult not crossing this line", began explaining.

The English centred then in his personal history when in an occasion was about to to hit to an ex player very known in LaLiga. The defender recognised that almost it arrives to the hands with the ex of the Real Madrid Álvaro Arbeloa when the Spanish played in Anfield. "It was in a field of football and was near to strike to one of my mates. Almost I strike to Arbeloa", admitted.

Nevertheless, his mates attained to calm something to the defender and at the end did not occur at all. Carraguer Says that arrepiente of what went through his head in these moments, but considers that it is something normal in the professional sport. "Now I look to backwards and I do not seat me proud, but this always goes to suceder in a moment or another, or something odd in the training. If you are so intense, always will want to win and there are times that would cross the line. It was alone frustration, at all more, everything finished quickly", affirmed.

Carragher Compared with Jordan

To finalise, the legend 'network' compared with Jordan regarding winning character and love to the sport. The ex escort of the Bulls always wanted to give the best of him and take out the best of his mates and this is something that the British respects. "To Michael Jordan and to me loved us the same. Like this it is like me I am with the football. His impulse and the strength, therefore it admired it. There is not form that it criticise this, by what did by the players of his around and by where carried to his team", signalled.
