Liverpool Legend Says He Would Like To See Everton's James McCarthy In Red
Childhood Everton fan and now Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has been quoted saying he'd love to see James McCarthy switch from blue to red.
In an interview with the Irish Examiner, Carragher said he "love(s) McCarthy, I think he's a brilliant player."
“If there was one player I could take from Everton to Liverpool, it would be James McCarthy. I think he’s just got to add goals. Jordan Henderson was maybe at that stage a year ago, where you really like what you see but there could be a few more goals or assists to take him up another level.
"Even though James McCarthy plays a more defensive role, he’s shown he can get forward. He’s a complete midfield player — he works hard, he can tackle, he can pass. I think eventually he’ll be the captain there.
“I love McCarthy as a player, love watching him, but I think to be classed as one of the best in the league he probably needs to add a few more goals and assists to his game. But that may come with maybe being a bit more adventurous if Roberto Martinez allows or wants that.”
