Speaking to reporters on Friday the West Ham manager said “That is very kind of Jamie Carragher that he’s said something positive – we’ve been rivals for many years.
I have to say I always admired Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher because I always thought they were the heartbeat of Liverpool.
Every time I went to play them, it was if they were driving the team on and being leaders at the club. They were really good players.
Would it be my biggest achievement? I think it would if we got the Champions League but I think the Champions League is probably just a stretch at this moment in time, not to say we can’t do it.
I even think European football would be great. I was at Everton for 11 years and only managed the Champions League once. So I would say that any form of European football for West Ham, if you’d said that at the start of the season you would have all started laughing.
I think now you’ll be a bit like me, if we don’t make it you’ll be a bit disappointed that we didn’t get there. We’ve done well but it’s not well enough yet for me, I am banging the drum behind the scenes for us to win these last three games. “
Claret and Hugh say: A lot of pundits have had to eat their words and swallow their pride, many wrote David Moyes off and suggested his return to West Ham was a mistake. He has proved a lot of people wrong and long may it continue! And fair play to Carra. Many don’t particularly like the guy but this time he has got it spot on and well played to him for coming out and saying ehat he did.
