Have you ever travelled to your old workplace only to realise you were meant to be heading somewhere else? That’s the question that Jamie Carragher asked on Friday morning – not because he was being inquisitive, but because he turned up at Liverpool’s Melwood training ground instead of the gym.

The Anfield legend has made a name for himself in developing into one of the leading football analysts since hanging up his boots in 2013. Alongside his fellow ex-England team-mate Gary Neville, he has become the face of Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football.

However, Carragher experienced a moment to forget – literally – on Friday morning when he made the usual trip from his home to the gym, only to arrive at Liverpool’s training ground.

Carragher posted on Twitter:  “Anyone ever drive to there[sic] previous employment without thinking? I've just drove to Melwood! Supposed to be going the gym!!”

Even worse is the fact that most of the Reds’ squad are away on international duty until the end of next week, so the 36-year-old wasn’t able to join in with a training session even if he wanted to.


What the hell are you doing here, Jamie?! We can imagine Brendan Rodgers' reaction

While Carragher’s best days on the pitch are certainly behind him, let’s hope he doesn’t get quite so forgetful when on live TV.
