(GSM) – Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has taken a swipe at former Reds manager Graeme Souness’ tenure at Anfield, claiming that the English manager is the one who ‘knocked Liverpool off their perch’.

Meanwhile Carragher maintains he admires Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson, Real Madrid’s José Mourinho and England manager Fabio Capello.

Carragher has revealed that Ferguson and Mourinho helped convince him to return to international football after Capello handed him a surprise call-up for England’s disastrous World Cup campaign.

Carragher told the Daily Mail: “The likes of Alex Ferguson and Jose Mourinho, I could talk to them all day and that’s one reason I answered the call from Fabio Capello to go to the World Cup. I wanted to see him at close quarters.”

He added: “I wasn’t disappointed and got on great with him. He used to make me laugh every day. It was just the way he was – no messing. I loved that.”

The Reds defender settled on Ferguson as the manager he would most like to interview and added: “What would I ask him? How long have you got? All day?

“If I was in his company, I would also tell him first off, that Manchester United never knocked Liverpool off their perch as he put it.

“That’s nonsense. Graeme Souness did that.

“When United were going for their first title under Ferguson in 1992-93 they were competing with Norwich and Aston Villa. They weren’t competing with Liverpool, were they?”
