Jamie Carragher : “Liverpool Considered Signing Gareth Bale”

share on:

Former Liverpool Defender Jamie Carragher has revealed Liverpool considered signing Gareth Bale.

During his time at Southampton, the world’s most expensive footballer is said to have attracted attention from then-Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez.

Writing in his column for the Daily Mail, Carragher revealed:

“He has come so far since making his way at Southampton.

“When he broke into their team, Rafa Benitez looked at signing him for Liverpool.

“Bale was playing as a left back then and Rafa didn’t think he was any better than John Arne Riise, so he never pursued it.”
