JAMIE CARRAGHER has hit back at David Luiz after the former Arsenal and Chelsea star said: "It's funny because he's never won the league."
Ex-Liverpool centre-back Carragher was regularly critical of Luiz when he played in the Premier League but the Brazilian said he had 'forgotten the past'.
In August, Luiz, 34, told the Mail: "It is funny, some people talk about how to win the Premier League, but they have never won it.
"Jamie Carragher never won the Premier League.
"They talk and say: 'This player is not right for this league.'
"Yet I won the league. These people have forgotten the past."
Luiz is now at Flamengo but came in for a lot of flack from Sky pundit Carragher, 43 – particularly in his later days at Arsenal when his form was noticeably poor.
And having seen Luiz's comments, Carragher told the Tony Bellew is Angry podcast: "David Luiz had a pop at me the other day in a newspaper, saying I hadn't won the league because I'd been critical of him as a player.

"And I have been critical of David Luiz, there's no doubt about that. Again nothing personal.
"But he's right I haven't won the league so if that's his comeback, fine.
"We were completely different players and that's why I was maybe more critical of him and maybe he wasn't my cup of tea.
"But if I was to see him now I wouldn't have a problem just because he had a pop at me.
"What I've learnt is, the older you get the less you care about what people think or say about you.
"I mean we don't like criticism but the older you get you're just like 'I'm not bothered'."
