Greater Manchester Police have spoken to the motorist who filmed Jamie Carragher spitting towards his car while both were driving on Saturday.
Enquiries are continuing but it is understood both Carragher’s actions and the filming of the incident while driving could be punishable.
Former Liverpool defender Carragher, 40, has apologised and been suspended by Sky Sports for whom he is a pundit.
The incident occurred after Liverpool’s 2-1 defeat at Manchester United.
Carragher, who has yet to be contacted by police, said he was “goaded three/four times while being filmed” but that there was “no excuse”.
Greater Manchester Police said on Monday they were not investigating the incident, and had received no complaint from the man driving the car.
But after the video was obtained by the Mirror and was widely distributed, police contacted the man who filmed the incident.
In the video, Carragher exchanges waves with the other driver before they both wind down their car windows.
The man can then be heard shouting: “Unlucky Jamie, lad. Two-one.”
Carragher, who made 737 appearances for Liverpool and won 38 England caps, reacts by leaning out of his window and spitting towards the car, hitting the man’s daughter, who is sitting in the front passenger seat.
