Jamie Carragher discovers he's been blocked as he tries to wish former teammate good luck in retirement
What a way to find out

Jamie Carragher couldn't send his best wishes to Jose Enrique even if he wanted to.

The legendary Liverpool centre-half didn't enjoy the best relationship with the Spaniard but we never knew that it had reached the point that Enrique felt the need to block Carragher on social media.

"I stopped talking to Enrique in the end, I had no idea what he was going to do and he didn't listen to me anyway," Carragher admitted four years ago, before criticising Enrique for a lack of ambition at Anfield.

"Enrique, who has played just 12 Premier League games in the past two seasons having been the club’s first-choice left back in the previous two campaigns, said he wanted to fight for his place," Carragher wrote in his Daily Mail column in 2015. "He added that he had looked to Spain for a move but economic conditions make it difficult.

it comes with a very heavy heart today to announce my retirement from professional football. Its been a very hard decision to take and accept. I would of loved to have played more years at my best level if my body would of let me but all good things have to come to an end and more in football. I just want to say a huge thanks to all of the fans and clubs who have supported me throughout my career. You have been the best! I have been blessed to play for some of the best teams in the world, with some of the best players in the world. these memories will stay with me forever. ❤️⚽️ #thankyou Below is the link to my interview for the Spanish newspaper marca.

"That translates as: I’m staying because no-one in Spain can afford me and I don’t care if I don’t play (just like last season) because I’m waiting to go on a free next summer when my contract expires.

"I am sure there are clubs in England or Spain who would want him for less money. It is about whether he really has the hunger to play even if it means a pay cut."

At the age of 31, following a season at Real Zaragoza, Enrique made the decision to retire from professional football due to a persistent knee injury.
