Rio Ferdinand's autobiography #2Sides has pulled no punches so far and that doesn't look like changing.
The book has offered a brutal assessment of recent England managers, former England captain John Terry and even called Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney "a very angry young man".
Former Liverpool and England centre-back Jamie Carragher was next in his sights, with Rio going after Carragher's thick Liverpudlian accent.
Rio, in a serialisation by The Sun writes: "On England duty some of us couldn't understand Carragher, we was like 'get a translator man!'".
But Carragher, who now works as a pundit for Sky Sports didn't back down from his former England team-mate's jibe.

Taking to Twitter, Carragher mocked Ferdinand's London twang, saying: "I couldn't understand him, Bruv, innit and wicked!!!!"Reuse content
