Jamie Carragher’s reaction to hearing Hector Bellerin’s voice for the first time was absolutely priceless

The Sky Sports pundit claimed to have never heard the Arsenal man speak before, and compared him to Mickey Pearce from Only Fools And Horses

We’re not sure which is more incredible in this instance.

The fact that Jamie Carragher has apparently never heard Hector Bellerin speak, or the fact he mentioned it in his punditry.

Still, those who have heard the Arsenal defender being interviewed before will be well aware of his slightly unique accent.

Having moved over to England at the age of 16, Bellerin has learned English with a slight Cockney twang.

So alongside his Spanish-English tone, he also has a touch of the pure-bred Londoner about him.

All of this seemingly surprised Carra in the Sky Sports studio following Arsenal’s 2-2 draw with Chelsea, as the former Liverpool man couldn’t believe his ears when asked to react to Bellerin’s post-match interview.



After David Jones mentioned Bellerin has the making of a future pundit, Carra, stunned by hearing Bellerin for the first time, said: “Bellerin… looks like Mickey Pearce, and sounds like Mickey Pearce from Only Fools And Horses.

“I’m not one to talk about accents, but I’ve never heard anything like that!”

Carra made reference to Mickey Pearce from Only Fools And Horses, a character who made a habit of talking gibberish about his latest business venture.

Excellent stuff from Carra, whose face was an absolute picture.
