Jamie Carragher has crucified Tim Krul after he was spotted smiling and laughing at half-time in the tunnel with Jermain Defoe, the Newcastle keeper apparently congratulating the Sunderland striker on his match winning goal.
The former Liverpool player says that he couldn’t believe what he was seeing and would never have dreant of this happening in the Merseyside dernies he played in.
John Carver said that he thought it was simply sportsmanship from Krul but this is what Jamie Carragher had to say:
“Somebody out there who doesn’t care about football might say it is good sportsmanship but when Everton played Liverpool, I certainly wouldn’t be shaking the hand of an Everton player (at half-time after scoring).
“He (Tim Krul) is actually waiting for him (Defoe) in the tunnel, he (Krul) is smiling.”
You don’t smile, you don’t laugh about it:
“Whenever you play a derby game you don’t just play on the day, there’s a build-up in the week before. Everybody is on edge and you work yourself up into a frenzy.
“You can’t have that in any game, but in a derby game…you don’t smile, you don’t laugh about it.”
