Jamie Carragher Recalls When Arsenal Fans “Showered” Him With Coins at Highbury

Jamie Carragher Recalls When Arsenal Fans “Showered” Him With Coins at Highbury

Ahead of the Premier League’s return tomorrow night, Jamie Carragher has re-opened an old wound from his playing days.

Back in 2002, when the Gunners hosted Liverpool in the FA Cup at Highbury, Dennis Bergkamp received a straight red card for a studs up tackle on Carragher.

However, with the incident taking place on the sidelines, the Arsenal fans were irate with the decision and one supporter went as far as to throw a coin at the Reds centre-back.

Carragher reacted by hurling the coin back at its owner – with the referee sending the England international off for his outburst.

And with Carragher set to call tomorrow night’s opener between Arsenal and Leicester, the 39-year-old has wound the clock back on his Instagram account:

 

Arsene Wenger’s side will be looking to continue their good form against the Foxes after their Charity Shield victory against Chelsea at Wembley.

And the home crowd could give Carragher a frosty reception after his reminder on social media…
