Carragher still upset

Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher admits he's still unhappy over the way they were outbid by Manchester United for Nemanja Vidic.

“United have got that edge on us financially,” Carragher told the The Times. “[Nemanja] Vidic is a classic case. He had a buyout clause of four or five million.

"We met that but United came along and paid seven or eight. But we can’t make excuses given the money we’ve spent.”

Sir Alex Ferguson’s biggest fan, Jamie Carragher, has today confessed that he is embarrassed at the disappointing years he’s had as a Liverpool player. In the 12 years he’s been playing for the first team, Liverpool have been in contention for the title on just one occasion.

Mr Liverpool, as he is dubbed by the club’s official website, also admits he has great respect for Manchester United. Of course, he’ll be forced in to having even more respect for us when we equal Liverpool title record this season…

“Being involved in the mind games is a good thing. We’ve always been on the outside looking in, something we’re not proud of,” said Carragher.

“I’ve always had respect for them (Manchester Utd). They’re a proper club, like us, and they should have respect for us as well.”

Carragher has refused to deny Ferguson’s claims that Liverpool will bottle it, acknowledging he is no position to say how his team will react to being second in the league at this stage of the season.

“Will we get nervous? I haven’t got a clue,” Carragher added. “I’m not going to put an act on and say no, because I’ve never been there. It’s only January. It’s embarrassing, really, that I’ve only been in this position once, with Gerard Houllier.”
