Jamie Carragher has his head in his hands and calls Todd Boehly ‘incredibly arrogant’ as Chelsea owner suggests Premier League All-Star game


Jamie Carragher’s reaction sums up how many people felt after Todd Boehly’s recent suggestions.

Chelsea’s new owner has floated the idea of ​​a Premier League All-Star Game, as they do in American sports.


Boehly was talking about his takeover in New York and appears to have ruffled some feathers

This was met with much ridicule, with Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp even giving a sarcastic response.

Carragher had his head in his hands while discussing these left field proposals and felt it was arrogant of Boehly to be trying to shake up the Premier League already.

Speaking on CBS, the Liverpool legend said: “I’m going to be honest with you. When I look at that statement, I think it’s incredibly arrogant to talk about a league you don’t know.

“I don’t think we should ever discard ideas. The Premier League is an international league with owners, managers and players. That’s what makes it the best.

When asked if he would like an all-star game, Carragher replied, “No. I don’t particularly like those ideas, but coming to talk like that when he hasn’t even proven he can run a Premier League club well yet. He sacked a manager after three games and spent £250million.

“Right away, it’s not good. He didn’t get off to a good start and talk like that when you’ve been somewhere six weeks and talk about how you’re going to “bring what we’re doing to American sports.”

Carragher was not a fan of Boehly's ideas

“I just think how the American public would feel if an English Premier League football owner then went to the NFL and said ‘we’re doing this in the Premier League’. It would be incredibly arrogant to say that.

“Maybe if he comes up with ideas to improve the league. Look, there’s nothing wrong with ideas. But I don’t think many people agree with them.

“To speak like that when you’ve only been in the country for a short time, he hasn’t even proven himself to be a good owner of Chelsea.”
