Who would have guessed that Jamie Carragher and Micah Richards could turn out to be such an entertaining expert couple? Those who pull the strings in CBS Sports, evidently.
Since Sky Sports does not have the rights to the Champions League football, that frees up players like Carragher and Richards to appear on other networks for their coverage of the contests.
The pair joined CBS Sports for tonight’s Champions League knockout round first leg clash between Atlético de Madrid and Chelsea, which the visitors won courtesy of a World Cup by Olivier Giroud.
Giroud was the topic of post-match conversation, unsurprisingly, with Richards attempting to explain Arsenal fans’ dislike of the Frenchman during his time at the Emirates as a result of the Gunners having Thierry Henry leading their line before this. arrival.
