“A lot of the time you can’t see the ball. You’re jumping and jostling – and what I would do, which was a mistake all the time, was I’d want to drop two yards so I could almost see the ball.”
Carragher’s fellow Monday Night Football pundit, former Wales manager Chris Coleman, agreed with the Liverpool legend’s assessment.
“He’s done it I think, because he thinks ‘I’m going to be the one to head this away’. It’s the last action of the game and we know the ball’s coming in,” Coleman said.
“If he’s guilty of anything, he’s guilty of taking too much responsibility. He’s the leader there and he’s got to keep that line high. Once he’s there he has to stay in sync with everyone else.”
