“Yes,” he replied. “Is it Spanish that they speak, Argentintians? I’m just going to say the word he called me, I don’t understand, a ‘burro’. What does that mean?”
Host Kate Abdo then pointed out the awkward translation as she revealed: “It means a ‘donkey’.”
“Donkey, thank you,” responded Carragher, who later explained his exchange in greater detail on Wednesday night.
“Well I think it came from this show actually,” he recalled. “I think we were critical of Paris Saint-Germain. Probably me.
“I said Paris Saint-Germain could not win the Champions League with Messi, Mbappe and Neymar playing together. I was proven right, again.
“A couple of weeks later, I was coming home from a game at Chelsea, I got a message and I was like ‘that can’t be him, must be one of these fake accounts’.
“Then I had a look and yeah, so it came from that and he told me his opinion.
“I had to then Google and do the translate thing because I didn’t have a clue what he’d sent to me.
“I just said ‘thanks for your opinion’, but the only trouble was the next night he was actually crowned the Ballon d’Or winner, so I replied to him saying ‘Congratulations’ and he saw the message and he didn’t reply.”
Since arriving in the USA, the 36-year-old has scored 11 goals and added five assists in 11 appearances for his new club.
