Jamie Carragher has admitted that he was forced to apologise to the whole Liverpool squad after ‘almost coming to blows’ with Alvaro Arbeloa.
Carragher revealed that he and the Spanish full-back suffered a major falling out on the pitch when the pair were both together at Liverpool. The former England international told the story to Gary Neville, Roy Keane, Ian Wright and Jill Scott as the pundits discussed Jadon Sancho’s situation at Manchester United.
Speaking on The Overlap, Carragher recalled the time he was forced to apologise after his spat with Arbeloa, admitting that saying sorry is the easiest and best thing to do. He added Sancho must do the same to Erik ten Hag after he was banished from the United first-team after a public row with the Dutchman.

Carragher said: “I had it a couple of times where I had to apologise in front of the dressing room. I nearly got into a fight with my own team-mate. He (Arbeloa) was going forward too much, I needed him to sit!” Carragher admitted as the group burst into laughter.
The former Liverpool defender continued: “So we nearly came to blows on the pitch then after the game you think ‘it was a bit much that,’ but I tried to apologise after the game and he (Arbeloa) threw his hands, so you lose your head again a little bit don’t you.

“But the next day the manager was like ‘no, you have to apologise in front of all the team,’ and sometimes you’ve just got to say sorry, and you just move on, forget it. And as you (Scott) said, sometimes you might not fully believe in it but at the end of the day, he’s your manager, he’s your boss and if he doesn’t come across, Sancho, and say sorry, what’s he going to do? Just stay in the reserves?
“You want to get your Manchester United career going and if all it takes is to just shake a fellas hand and say sorry, lets move on and forget about it, it’s not a big deal.”
