Liverpool legend Carragher slaughters David Luiz: Worst I've EVER seen

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has slammed former Chelsea defender David Luiz over his performance in Brazil's World Cup defeat to Germany.Chelsea sold Luiz to PSG before the World Cup for a record £50 million.

Carragher wrote in the Daily Mail: "I have never been a fan, then warmed to him in this tournament, but… that was as bad a central defensive performance as I've seen from someone at this level.

"He was running all over the pitch, failing to hold his position. Then went for the oldest trick in the book, trying to hurt German players to show the crowd how determined he was.

"He caught Miroslav Klose with an elbow twice, then took a wild swing at Muller in the second half - that was embarrassing.

"Certain centre backs are leaders, while others need to be led. After this game, it is obvious what category he is in!"
