The list of people who struggle to understand Jamie Carragher grew yet again last night. This time, it was AC Milan star Rafael Leao.
The Portuguese winger was instrumental to his side last night, with his solo run carving open the Napoli defence before Olivier Giroud's crucial finish sent AC Milan into the Champions League semifinal.
Jamie Carragher was on punditry duty for CBS Sports Golazo alongside Micah Richrds, Thierry Henry and Andriy Shevchenko. After the game, Rafael Leao joined the panel for an interview which made for fantastic viewing.
Rafael Leao bewildered by Carra's accent.
Carragher's strong scouse accent can often cause people who aren't used to listening to him some difficulties and last night, perhaps the best example of that was shown.
When Leao joined the CBS panel for a post match interview, Carragher took his chance to question one of the hottest prospects in world football.
Here's how the interview unfolded.
JC: When you see the game tomorrow, obviously a rival of yours Inter Milan are in the other semifinal, would you like that? A big semifinal with your biggest rivals?
RL: I didn't understand can you repeat please?
JC: They all have the same problem in the studio. Inter Milan are playing tomorrow, Internazionale. Would you like to face them in the semifinal?
RL: You like do??? I don't understand.
Leao's reaction sparked utter hysteria in the studio with Micah Richards reduced to tears from the conversation between the two. Thierry Henry also struggled to keep it together with the pair ridiculing Carragher for his reference to "Internazionale".
Micah Richards joked:
Jamie, seriously? You go "Internazionale". If he didn't understand "Inter" how is he going to know "Internazionale"?
After Carragher's question went straight over Leao's head once again, Kate Abdo was forced to jump in a reword the question herself. Unsurprisingly, the Rafael Leao understood the host immediately and Carragher finally got an answer to his question.
