Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock for the past two days, you’ve probably seen Jamie Carragher and Thierry Henry’s reactions to the news that Brendan Rodgers was sacked at this stage.
The news broke that Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers had left Liverpool live on Sky Sports over the weekend and we were all treated to one of the most golden television moments in recent memory.
Thierry Henry seemed absolutely stunned and he reached out for his good pal Jamie for some support… by touching his leg. Carragher shuffled uncomfortably and then, almost perfectly, he stared straight into the camera as if he was hoping that somehow, it wasn’t filming. Thankfully, it was.
The moment has done the rounds ever since and the various comic geniuses of the internet have recreated the reaction over and over again in increasingly humourous fashion.
