Liverpool legend Carragher: How Rafa and I took mick out of eachother over Chelsea's Terry

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has revealed how he and Rafa Benitez took the mick out of eachother over Chelsea captain John Terry.

Carra recalled in the Daily Mail: "As Liverpool and Chelsea's rivalry escalated, I remember Rafa Benitez saying to me 'how lucky' Mourinho was to have a player such as Terry. I quickly told him he was lucky to have me and Rafa replied, pulling his hand away from his nose to mimic Pinocchio: 'Yes, yes! You're as good as Terry!' Not to be beaten, I replied with the same gesture: 'Yes, yes! You're as good as Mourinho!'

"But I could understand what Rafa meant. Terry had this ability to draw the ball to him like a magnet, always getting his head or his foot in the way just when it mattered. John was a better version of me and his form was one of the main reasons I retired from England."
