Liverpool fans have praised both Jamie Carragher and Patrice Evra for their words on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football regarding the Luis Suarez incident.
Evra was a guest on MNF on Monday night as Arsenal were swept aside by Sheffield United, and apart from some great digs at the Gunners, the former Manchester United star delivered some truly brilliant insight into his 2011 confrontation with former Red Suarez.
The Frenchman revealed how Liverpool’s decision to wear t-shirts showing their support for Suarez “disappointed” him, even calling it “ridiculous”.
Carragher agreed with his former rival, saying: “There is no doubt that we made a massive mistake.”
While he claimed not to know where the decision to wear the t-shirts had come from, the Liverpool legend was brutally honest about his own involvement, saying that as vice-captain he “lacked the courage” to go against what the team had decided, before apologising to Evra.
Evra then revealed that he actually understood the decision to stand by a teammate, and loads of Reds fans have been reacting to the pair’s discussion.
One fan admitted they were “ashamed and embarrassed” by the club’s decision to wear the t-shirts, while others praised Carragher’s apology and said Evra had changed their opinion of him.
Take a look at some of the best reactions down below…
Both you and him handled the difficult discussion very well

The club should issue a formal apology for the way they acted it’s actually shameful to think back about it

Not very often programmes get extended like that, was very insightful and changed my opinion on Evra completely, also Fairplay Carra for holding up your hands! Takes a lot to do that on TV ??

Fair play carra for admitting we were very wrong as a club to do such a thing apologising for it and saying you didn’t have the courage to say anything even though you knew it was wrong not easy that live on tv ??
