Jamie Carragher insists he isn't bothered by David Luiz's Premier League title jibe after the Brazilian hit back at the pundit.


Carragher has been vocal in his criticism of the former Arsenal and Chelsea defender in the past.

Luiz left London in the summer after his two-year stint at the Gunners came to an end.

The Brazilian however leaves the English capital with a Premier League winners medal, a Champions League success, two Europa League victories and two FA Cups.

Despite that he has copped criticism for his style of play, which has often been seen as high risk given his position.

Carragher is among those to point out Luiz's flaws, although he insists its nothing personal, but the 34-year-old has hit back.

The former Liverpool man won every honour available to him, except the league title.

"It is funny, some people talk about how to win the Premier League, but they have never won it," Luiz told MailSport previously

"Jamie Carragher never won the Premier League. They talk and say, “This player is not right for this league”. Yet I won the league. These people have forgotten the past."

The closest the former Red ever got was second place finishes in 2002 and 2009.

However he claims such jibes from Luiz have little affect on him, with no personal problem existing between the pair.

He told the Tony Bellew is Angry podcast : "David Luiz had a pop at me the other day in a newspaper, saying I hadn't won the league because I'd been critical of him as a player.

"And I have been critical of David Luiz, there's no doubt about that. Again nothing personal.

"But he's right I haven't won the league so if that's his comeback, fine.

"We were completely different players and that's why I was maybe more critical of him and maybe he wasn't my cup of tea.

"But if I was to see him now I wouldn't have a problem just because he had a pop at me.

Is Jamie Carragher's criticism of David Luiz fair? Comment down below

"What I've learnt is, the older you get the less you care about what people think or say about you.

"I mean we don't like criticism but the older you get you're just like 'I'm not bothered'."

Carragher was particularly critical of a Luiz performance when Arsenal lost at Manchester City back in June 2020.

The defender was at fault for one of the goals after coming on and the Sky Sports pundit said: "It's happened so often, it's no surprise why he's on the bench. There's no future for him at Arsenal next season."

Despite his comments Luiz would go on to get a contract extension.
