Liverpool Legend's Name-Calling Sparks Hilarious Twitter Response Following Prem Opener
Jamie Carragher and Gary Neville are two of the most loved pundits on Sky Sports, with their quick wit and friendly banter always an entertaining sight to see.
Following Arsenal's 4-3 victory over Leicester City, however, Liverpool legend Carragher was the centre of attention after comments he made to Arsenal's 67-year-old manager.
Having spoken about the importance of picking up points against teams in the second half of the table, Carragher was desperate to talk to Arsène Wenger on the impact of his second half substitutes, Olivier Giroud and Aaron Ramsey.
Carragher, who made 38 appearances for the England national team during his career, in his desperation appeared to resort to a playground bullying tactic by needless name-calling the Arsenal manager.

Some fans were even quick to get behind their manager and have some fun with the Liverpool legend, often coming up with some rather creative responses to Carragher.
He genuinely could of said anything, cannot legitimately understand a word that comes out of his mouth— Steve bruce's Nose (@TheNormalGooner) August 11, 2017
Takes one to know one hahaha!— SP Counsel (@SecretAgentGuit) August 11, 2017
One Arsenal fan managed to hit back at the former Liverpool player with a response that contained more medical terminology that we're used to seeing in the world of football Twitter.
He always sounds like a man who's just had his adenoids removed— Uri Kozlovsky (@Uri_Koz) August 11, 2017
Although Carragher's innocent mistake was laughed up by an awful lot of people on social media, it's safe to say it is the first time that the adenoids, a body part with a similar function the the tonsils, have ever been mentioned after a football match.
