CricInfo is reporting that former England winger, Jamie Carragher, is an interviewee for ESPN’s Inaugural Sports Personality, with Carragher himself confirming his interest in the role.
Carragher tweeted out that he was “in talks with ESPN about interviewing Jamie Carragh”.
ESPN said that Carragher had been in talks with them.
Carragh had previously spoken about how his wife has been suffering with multiple sclerosis and how the sport has helped him with his health.
The former Manchester United and Manchester City player has also said that his wife is “one of the most amazing, inspirational and loving people I know”.
Carragher was part of the England squad that beat Uruguay in the final of the 2012 Olympic Games.
He also captained the side during the 2006 World Cup.
Carray was a regular pundit during the Rugby World Cup in England and also the BBC’s Sports Personality of the Year in 2007.
He is a three-time winner of the BBC Sports Personality Of The Year award, and was a pundit for the 2013 Rugby World Championship.
He won the 2015 Sports Personality Awards for his role as an analyst for ITV’s Six Nations.
The BBC has since suspended him after he tweeted a video of himself at the end of a match that appeared to show him using a banned substance.
“I’m not going to lie, I was very lucky to interview Jamie Carragh,” Carragher told the Radio Times.
“He’s one of the greatest players I’ve ever played against, who’s played at the highest level.
I’d like to thank all of his fans for the support he’s received from the game, especially during the World Cup.”
