JAMIE CARRAGHER was left speechless as Micah Richards dangled his Premier League winners’ medal in front of him on Wednesday night.
The duo were part of CBS Sports‘s coverage of the Champions League wins for Chelsea and Bayern Munich.
At one point, fellow pundit Peter Schmeichel had donned a crown and told the team, including Alex Scott, to bring out their medals.
Having previously been mocked for never winning the Champions League, ex-Manchester City star Richards got his own back on Carragher.
The retired 32-year-old sneakily laid his 2011-12 Prem winners’ medal on the table in front of the Liverpool legend.
Breaking into hysterics, he proclaimed: “Jamie! Don’t touch it mate!
“You mentioned Champions League and all that nonsense… That’s the closest you’ll ever get!”
Carragher couldn’t help but chuckle as Richards proudly donned the medal around his neck.
The former England defender played 29 times en route to City’s first-ever Prem crown, their first league title for 44 years at the time.
The moment was a clear rebuttal to Carragher’s teasing a week earlier over Richards never winning the Champions League.
When the pair were discussing Liverpool’s hopes of winning this year’s European crown last week, the 43-year-old gave his reason for optimism.
With Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo both out of the quarter-finals for the first time since 2005, when the Reds won the trophy, he talked of a ‘feeling’ that something similar may happen.
Richards chimed in and asked: “Feel what?! What can you feel?”
Carragher replied: “It’s just something in your bones – you wouldn’t know, you’ve never won the Champions League!”
However, both were left behind on Wednesday when it came to honours, as ex-Arsenal defender Scott whipped out the ‘top trump’ – her MBE award from the Queen.
