Manchester United physiotherapist Rod Thornley has joked that Jamie Carragher 'f***ed him up' while go-karting – all because he worked for the Red Devils.
Thornley is a much-loved member of the backroom staff at the Red Devils, and, as a result, he was caught in the crossfire of the United Liverpool rivalry. And speaking on Undr the Cosh, he recalled one moment with Carragher.
He said: "There was always a needle with Carragher, because of the United Liverpool thing. I get on with him – because I see him at Soccer Aid now.

"But, I remember, it might have been in 2004, we were away, we might have been in Sardinia, and there was a go-kart place. And every night, the England team would have it booked out.
"Anyone who was part of the England set up could go on the go-karts. And I remember this one night, there were loads of lads there, and I was on there.

"And Carragher's just turned around and gone 'you're f***ing getting it!' I'm going around the track and he's going straight over the grass verges just to plough into me!"
The physio added Carragher would even go the wrong way around the track to try and hit him. However, Thornley then clarified it was "just his banter" as he was a Manc and Carragher was a Scouser – and the pair are on good terms these days.
Thornley continued to joke he could never see Gary Neville and Carragher getting on as well as the Sky Sports pundits do now when he was at England camps with the fierce rivals from British football's two most successful clubs.
