I don't think everyone at the club thought what we were doing was right.

Liverpool courted controversy when they and then-manager Kenny Dalglish wore "Suarez 7" t-shirts in the warm-up for a clash at Wigan, in support of their player. I don't think it had anything to do with the manager Kenny, I think it was the players who were close to Luis in the dressing room who really wanted to support their mate.

Liverpool's players - including Carragher - responded to the suspension by wearing t-shirts with Suarez's face on before a Premier League match with Wigan in December 2011 in a show of support for their striker.

"Apologies, we got it massively wrong", said Carragher.

Evra made his claims immediately after the match and was quoted as telling French television station Canal Plus: "There are cameras, you can see [Suarez] say a certain word to me at least 10 times".

Ex-Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has apologised to Patrice Evra for wearing t-shirts in support of Luis Suarez after the Uruguayan racially abused the Frenchman in 2011.

Evra confirmed he was infuriated by the Liverpool players wearing the tee-shirts, as he offered up his first comments on the incident eight years later. I was watching the game.

He added: 'Even for the club you put it in danger.

A Liverpool spokesperson said: "Liverpool Football Club takes all allegations of this manner extremely seriously and will support the strongest possible action being taken against anyone found to be responsible". That is better than a fine or a ban.

"I think they're clear favourites and I think they'll win the Premier League this year, comfortably, by points".

Suarez and Evra left Liverpool and Manchester United respectively in the summer of 2014, while Carragher retired from playing in 2013.

"'It was unbelievable. All the week, people asking are you going to shake his hand?"

"My Mum asked me and I said "Mummy I say I'm someone who will forgive, I will shake his hand no matter what" and he made a mistake - I won't go on holiday with him".

'When he didn't I was like "what's wrong with that guy, he makes himself worse".
