Scott Carson delivers scathing response to fan’s claim of zero playing time in securing his two Champions League medals

Scott Carson responded to a fan’s accusation that he didn’t deserve his two Champions League winning medals. The experienced goalkeeper achieved a personal milestone when Manchester City defeated Inter Milan to claim their inaugural European Cup.

 In doing so, he equaled Paulo Maldini’s record for the longest time gap between Champions League victories. Carson had been a substitute without playing in the final when Liverpool famously triumphed over AC Milan in 2005.

 Eighteen years later, he found himself on the bench once again as Manchester City achieved a treble by securing victory in Istanbul.

After the triumph and Scott Carson’s noteworthy accomplishment, a fan expressed their opinion on Twitter, claiming that the goalkeeper did not merit his medals since he did not participate in any matches during either campaign.

Stating: ‘Scott Carson. Twice champions league winner without playing a minute’, alongside a round of applause emoji. 

In response to the comment, Scott Carson retaliated and proudly pointed out to the fan that he did indeed make an appearance in the quarter-final match for Liverpool during their journey to clinching their fifth European Cup victory.

He said: “90 minutes quarter final do your research lad” adding two medal emoji’s to hammer home the point. 

Carson was specifically alluding to his participation in Liverpool’s quarter-final first-leg match against Juventus in 2005. In that game, managed by Rafa Benitez, the Reds emerged victorious with a 2-1 scoreline, and Carson played the entire match as the starting goalkeeper.

In 2019, at the age of 37, Carson joined Manchester City on loan from Derby County to serve as a backup for Ederson and Claudio Bravo. During that season, he had a notable moment when he made his first Premier League appearance in almost ten years, facing Newcastle United and successfully saving a penalty taken by Joe Willock

After two loan stints, Scott Carson officially joined Manchester City on a permanent basis in 2021. During the previous season’s Champions League knockout phase, he made an appearance for the club as a substitute in a goalless draw against Sporting Lisbon.

Throughout his career, Carson has represented various clubs including Leeds, West Brom, and Wigan. He has also embarked on several loan spells, most notably with Charlton and Aston Villa.

Carson has earned four caps while playing for the England national team. One of his most memorable moments came when he allowed Niko Kranjcar’s shot to bounce in front of him before inadvertently parrying it into the net, resulting in England’s failure to qualify for Euro 2008 during Steve McLaren’s tenure as manager.
