John Terry’s savage response to Jamie Carragher on Abramovich goes viral

Carragher had made huge allegations on Chelsea and it’s embattled owner Roman Abramovich on Monday night football.

He claimed that Chelsea have “taken advantage” of other clubs in the Premier League under the Russian’s ownership.

The Sky sports pundit received plenty of backlash from Chelsea fans but came to defended what he wrote.

“Chelsea have been doing that for 20 years. That was the big thing of Roman Abramovich coming,” Carragher said.

“We can throw our money about and we can get who we want, we’re going to go to Manchester United, the first thing we do, we’re going to get Peter Kenyon their CEO, we’ll go to Liverpool and take the best midfielder in Europe and destabilise that club for two summers.

“We’ll go and get Ashley Cole, an invincible, we’ll get caught tapping up, doesn’t matter, we’ll pay the fine, England flying at the time with Sven-Goran Eriksson, no we want him as Chelsea manager, we’ll pay the fine don’t worry’.

“They win the Youth Cup every year or get into the final, not because they have the best coaches or the best academy, but because they go and basically take the best players from every club within this country and relocate the family.

“So, Chelsea football club have taken advantage of every other club in the last 20 years because of Roman Abramovich. So if I give an opinion of another club taking advantage of them, that’s just a way of life.

“I don’t want Chelsea to go to the wall. But that’s my opinion of it, I don’t want Chelsea fans the next time I go there questioning that opinion because that is exactly what Chelsea have done for the last 20 years.”

When John Terry mugged off Jamie Carragher

Under Abramovich, Chelsea invested heavily and, as Carragher mentions, attempted to take Steven Gerrard from Liverpool.

That was confirmed by former Chelsea captain John Terry when he appeared alongside Carragher on Monday Night Football.

But at the same time, he completely mugged off Carragher.

“The owner [Roman Abramovich] would speak about certain individuals,” Terry explained back in 2017.

“Players like Stevie [Gerrard], he’d want to sign Stevie.”

Carragher chipped in with “Did he ask about me?” to which Terry, stone-faced, replied: “No, not you mate. Unfortunately not.”


Of course, with Terry already at the heart of defence alongside the likes of Ricardo Carvalho or Gary Cahill there wasn’t much need for Carragher.

No wonder Carragher has a bit of an issue with the Chelsea era under Abramovich.
