He’s gone underground again: Carragher taunts Manchester United legend Gary Neville after Liverpool win PL

Football pundit and former England defender Jamie Carragher was ecstatic after Liverpool sealed a first league title in three decades on Thursday when Manchester City was beaten 2-1 by Chelsea.

This was a moment Carragher had dreamt about for decades and he took the opportunity to poke fun at his fellow pundit and Manchester United legend Gary Neville, avenging all the grief he’s taken from his Sky Sports colleague over the years.

Carragher took to his official Twitter handle and posted a picture of Neville holding a bottle of champagne mocked up in a Liverpool shirt.

It was back in February that Neville took to social media to post a video of him popping a champagne bottle as Liverpool’s run of 44 Premier League games unbeaten came to an end with a shock 3-0 defeat to Watford.

The post was captioned ‘#19’ to celebrate the number of league titles won by Liverpool – one short of bitter rivals Manchester United.

“I’m trying to get hold of him, there’s just no signal,” Carragher told Sky Sports.

“He’s gone underground again, G Nev. He said Man United were going to win the league before Liverpool at the start of the season – top pundit!”

Meanwhile, Gary Neville had told Sky Sports in early May: “I don’t know why it is but I feel a little more confident in Manchester United’s ability to challenge next season just because of what’s happened and the fact that they started to play a lot better before lockdown.”

Never thought Klopp could win the title, admitted Jamie Carragher

Carragher had written in the Telegraph: “Jurgen Klopp arrived at Anfield saying he wanted to turn doubters into believers. I was one of those who had given up hope on Liverpool winning the Premier League.

“It was shortly after my last meaningful title bid in 2009 that I started to lose my faith. The 2010 season was awful. Xabi Alonso had been sold to Real Madrid, Rafa Benitez’s team was unraveling, and the club was braced for another period of reconstruction.

“Reluctantly, I faced up to the disheartening conclusion a championship victory parade would never happen.

“It gives me the greatest pleasure to admit these words now look misjudged. In my defense, aside from the most optimistic fans judging with a heart above the head, no one took me to task for the remarks at the time.”
