'John Terry was basically a better version of me': Jamie Carragher lauds Chelsea legend and says former England defender was technically underrated

Jamie Carragher has praised John Terry as a better version of himself and claims the Chelsea legend's career remains underrated to this day.

Former Liverpool defender Carragher played with fellow centre-back Terry when they were both England internationals between 2003 and 2010, and has admitted he was struck by his resolve and tough-tackling nature when defending.

However, the current Sky Sports pundit also believes that Terry was as technically accomplished as the best during his playing days.
