Watch Micah Richards speak 'C grade' Italian before Jamie Carragher leaves CBS studio in stitches with American accent

MICAH RICHARDS and Jamie Carragher had viewers and colleagues in stitches last night.

The much-loved Sky Sports pundits were in the CBS Studio to cover all of Tuesday’s Champions League action when the hilarious moments occurred.

Former Manchester City Premier League winner Richards, 33, spent the 2014/15 campaign on-loan in Italy’s Serie A with Fiorentina.

Matteo Bonnetti, the lead Serie A analyst for the US television network, revealed on-air that the ex-England international had informed him that he had learned several Tuscan and Italian phrases during that period.

He then put Richards on the spot and challenged him to share some with him and viewers.

To be fair to the much-loved pundit, he quickly reeled off several words of Italian as his co-hosts giggled along.

Bonnetti responded: “That’s pretty legitimate.”

He was then asked to grade Richards’ Italian, to which he replied: “It’s alright. He was only there for one season so you can’t expect too much.

“There were a few phrases and he was showing off in the break. He introduced himself pretty well. So it’s a C.”

Later in the broadcast it was Liverpool legend Carragher’s turn to have his colleagues in hysterics.

He was asked if he had anything to add before the action, and the 43-year-old responded in his best American accent to say: “What a game we’ve got tonight.”

However, not all fans were impressed with Carra’s efforts.

One tweeted: “His accent should be a crime.”

While another wrote: “Why does he turn into Borat?”
