Crouch reveals Bellamy comment that left Carragher ‘gobsmacked’

Peter Crouch has recalled a match where Craig Bellamy called out Jamie Carragher for criticising Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler.

Carragher and Bellamy used to be team-mates at Liverpool but there was one time they clashed when the Welshman was at Newcastle United.

Carragher was annoyed by Fowler’s lack of movement during a clash with the Magpies and Bellamy saw an opportunity to wind up his former team-mate.

“Robbie Savage and Craig Bellamy were relentless. Jamie Carragher tells a story about Bellers,” Crouch wrote in the Daily Mail.

“Carra played a ball up to Robbie Fowler and then had a go at him for not running into space. Bellers, playing for Newcastle at the time, turned to Carra and said: ‘Who the **** do you think you are you talking to? That’s Robbie Fowler!’

“Even when it had nothing to do with him, Bellers could not help getting involved. Carra was gobsmacked.

“In my final few years, those types of players had all but disappeared.”

On his best partner in football, Crouch added: “I loved playing with Steven Gerrard. He was an absolute joy. I would have to say Rafa van der Vaart was my best partner.

“We hit it off from our first training session. He knew where to run, how to pass and we just had the perfect blend.”
