Liverpool hero Carragher snaps back: Kia, why get personal...? I need to thank you

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has hit back at comments from Kia Joorabchian after the super agent accused him of a lack of education.

Joorabchian took exception to comments made by Carragher on Sky Sports, when he labeled Everton the worst run club in the country.

He also questioned the relationship between the super agent and Toffees owner Farhad Moshiri, which had led to some poor transfers for Everton.

On Wednesday, Joorabchian appeared on talkSPORT, stating: “When Simon [Jordan] says something I respect it because he's an educated person.

“Unlike someone like Jamie Carragher who unfortunately lives in a glass house, spits out of car windows and has no education in terms of his background when he makes a comment."

Carragher responded on Twitter, pointing out Joorabchian's failed dealings with QPR, Everton, Arsenal, and other English clubs.

Carragher tweeted: “Kia, there is no need to get personal, I'm just analysing your role in football clubs! Involved in helping Everton to the bottom of PL. Involved at QPR, which ended with relegation. Your signings at Arsenal took them to 8th, now they've gone, they're top."

The former defender added: “I should also thank you for your role in taking (Philippe) Coutinho to Barcelona! Won Liverpool the PL & CL, you actually are good for certain football clubs!"
