Bobby Zamora was as surprised as anyone to see his name come up on Sky Sports when Jamie Carragher was asked who his toughest ever opponent was!
Our former centre-back stated that often it’s the players you don’t associate with greatness who can give you a consistently tough time as a centre-back, with Zamora the name he picked out first.
The former QPR striker was a Premier League forward for years and years, but only hit double figures in the top flight on one occasion for West Ham over a 20 year career.
He did, of course, have one of the best terrace songs going – which cements his legendary status.
‘When the ball hits the goal, it’s not Shearer or Cole… It’s ZAMORA!’
I’ll take that from one of the greats. 😉👏🏽. pic.twitter.com/0V5P8tOdFS
