Andy Carroll had to Google his Liverpool team-mates

Had you asked Luis Suarez, Philippe Coutinho and a few others who the hell Andy Carroll was 8-9 years ago, they'd be forgiven for not having a clue.

But to hear that the former Liverpool and West Ham forward had to Google his then Liverpool team-mates is a little surprising. That's apparently the case, though.

The striker, who has just resigned for his former club Newcastle, has admitted as much speaking to the official club website.

He said: "When I was last here (in Newcastle), I’d go home, mess about with my mates, play football, go out, whatever, but I’d never watch football, I never knew any players.

"When I was in the helicopter down to Liverpool, I was like, ‘I know Stevie G, I know Carragher... who else?’. My agent at the time had to tell me, and I would get it on Google and find out the team.

"It’s bad because it’s Liverpool players, but it’s not disrespectful – I just literally didn’t watch football, so I didn’t know."
