Now this is what respect between two world class players seems like. Setanta Sports has quoted Chelsea captain John Terry has saying that his England international team mate and Liverpool veteran Jamie Carragher as the best defender in the world.
I personally think that over the last four or five years he has been the best defender in the world. He has everything you need to be a world class defender and you also have to look at what he’s achieved in The Champions League with Liverpool. He’s been consistent in The Premier League, he’s never injured, he always gives one hundred per cent, he’s a good reader of the game, he’s quick and is good in the air. For a centre half he’s also great on the ground as well. He knows when to get the ball away, when to clear his lines. He also never stops talking to his team-mates and that’s a great thing to have. Even when you watch games on the television it’s always his voice you can hear.
Carragher has often been overlooked when it came to matters for the England national team. But he has been a rock for Liverpool throughout his footballing career. Carra is one of those rare one-club one-woman man and his versatility to play anywhere across the back four has allayed the headache of Liverpool on several occasions. Although Terry’s conviction that Carra is the best defender in the world is a bit too far-fetched, there’s no doubt that he is one of the best.
