Jamie Carragher reveals he’s been BLOCKED on Twitter by a former Liverpool teammate

The ex-Reds defender wanted to send his old teammate a message on Twitter - but found out he couldn't

It’s fair to say that Jose Enrique and Jamie Carragher didn’t exactly get on during their time together at Liverpool. 

And things haven’t exactly improved since.

We think this is when things started to go downhill for Enrique

We think this is when things started to go downhill for Enrique

The Reds legend turned Sky Sports pundit was one of the Spaniard’s harshest critics a few years back, once writing in his Daily Mail column in 2015: “I stopped talking to Enrique in the end, I had no idea what he was going to do and he didn’t listen to me anyway.


“Enrique, who has played just 12 Premier League games in the past two seasons having been the club’s first-choice left-back in the previous two campaigns, said he wanted to fight for his place.

“He added that he had looked to Spain for a move but economic conditions make it difficult.

“That translates as: I’m staying because no one in Spain can afford me and I don’t care if I don’t play (just like last season) because I’m waiting to go on a free next summer when my contract expires.

“I am sure there are clubs in England or Spain who would want him for less money. It is about whether he really has the hunger to play even if it means a pay cut.”

Blimey, Jamie. 

But after news broke today that Enrique has been forced to retire from football at the age of just 31 following an injury-plagued season at Real Zaragoza, Carra wanted to do the right thing and wish his former club-mate well on Twitter.

Except he couldn’t.

Because Enrique had BLOCKED him.

Clearly a little perplexed by his former teammate’s move, Carragher tweeted: “Can’t even wish him all the best for the future!”

Looks like he didn’t take too kindly to the criticism, matey.
