“I couldn’t believe we had these players” – Jamie Carragher names 2 ex-Liverpool stars who impressed him the most in training

Former Liverpool ace defender Jamie Carragher has revealed the two players who impressed him the most in training during his time at Liverpool.

He said: “The two for me that stand out were Xabi Alonso straight away, he’d come from Real Sociedad so it wasn’t from one of the Spanish giants, he was seen as a really good young player, I just remember him passing the ball and I’m not talking about 60 yard passes, it was like that sidefoot one, the pace on it, the noise.

“You know that noise when someone passes a really good pass? And that’s why straight away you think ooh”

He continued, “The other one was Luis Suarez. The thing with Suarez was you’re actually looking at each other and thinking how have we got him? Because it wasn’t even a time when we were at our best, sort of under Gerard Houllier or Rafa Benitez.

“This was, obviously, when Kenny [Dalglish] had come in because things hadn’t gone well previously. We weren’t even a team that were challenging, we were trying to fight for the top 4 and I just couldn’t believe we had this player.

“Why had no one else signed him before us? And you’re watching him in training and you’re thinking have we missed something or is this a freak, he’s had a good start in the games and training. But they were the two that really sort of stood out.”
