JAMIE CARRAGHER and Micah Richards burst out laughing when Fikayo Tomori described Thierry Henry in glowing terms.

The CBS Sports pundits were in the studio for Tuesday night’s Champions League action.

And after AC Milan booked their spot in the semi-finals, the crew chatted to defender Tomori.

And the articulate 25-year-old, who grew up in Kent, had the panel in stitches with his comment.

Carragher said: “A little birdie tells me the guy who asked the question before me [Henry] is one of your biggest idols.

“What are your thoughts of him as a pundit as well as a player?”

Tomori replied: “As a player of course there’s not much to be said.

“Growing up, Thierry I hope you don’t mind me embarrassing you like this, but yeah I was a big fan and he was my idol.

“Obviously as I was getting older, I moved further back down the pitch.”

Then he cracked the former defenders in the studio up.


Tomori added: “As a pundit, he’s really funny.”

Carragher immediately jumped in, shouting: “Funny? Funny? That’s me and Micah not Thierry, he’s the analyst.”

But Tomori explained: “We were watching the video of him doing the guess who and he guessed himself twice instead of Oli [Giroud]. So yeah he’s really funny.”

And that prompted more hilarious reactions from the ex-players and host Kate Abdo.

Tomori was clearly buzzing to reach the last four of the Champions League, shocking Napoli over two legs to set up a showdown with either Benfica or city rivals Inter Milan for a place in the final.

However, he was just as delighted to chat with his hero Henry.

The ex-Chelsea defender tweeted the CBS clip and wrote: “Talk to your footballing idol? Completed it mate✅.”

But Abdo did have to apologise to Tomori after blunder pair Carragher and Richards both mispronounced his name as Fuh-kaw-ree instead of Fuh-kay-ow.

And the brilliant triple act of pundits were left crying with laughter when Tomori’s Milan team-mate Rafael Leao could not understand Carragher’s thick Scouse accent.
