Jamie Carragher reveals he contacted Harry Maguire to offer support

Posted by

Carragher was writing in his column for The Telegraph: “No matter how mentally strong you are, when you find yourself in a media storm – news reporters chasing a story in which you are at the centre – it is impossible to prepare for or know how to deal with that daily anxiety.

Carragher is of course comparing the time he spat on a Manchester United supporter to the time Harry Maguire found himself in trouble out in Mykonos in Greece.

“It is not the impact on yourself that hurts most. You see the pain more in your family and friends. That’s what really gets to you. Knowing how much support around you is appreciated in such a situation, I contacted Maguire.

“We exchanged a few messages in which I tried to offer reassurance from my own experience of being thrust into the limelight for the wrong reasons.

“I told him to keep his head up and said that the current difficulties would pass.”
