sport news Jamie Carragher calls Rio Ferdinand 'a clown' on Champions League coverage trends now
Jamie Carragher has reignited his feud with Rio Ferdinand, saying he is 'happy to call him a clown' while covering the Champions League semi-final with CBS.
The Liverpool hero and the Manchester United legend have clashed before on social media and Carragher stoked the fires once again by criticizing Ferdinand's opinion on a penalty call during Inter Milan's 2-0 win over rivals AC.
Lautaro Martínez went down inside the AC Milan box following a tussle with Simon Kjaer. Referee Jesus Gil Manzano immediately pointed to the spot and booked the defender but overturned his call after VAR asked him to consult his monitor.
Ferdinand, who was broadcasting for BT Sport live from the San Siro on Wednesday, said it was a 'stonewall' penalty but Carragher felt differently - and didn't spare the former United man from criticism when he explained why.
CBS showed Carragher being outraged at the decision during the first half when they were off air, where he said: 'I think anyone out there who is watching the replay and seeing what VAR do and still believe that is a penalty, they must be a clown.'
