Carragher fires back at Gary Neville’s "nonsense" punditry after Man Utd defeat

Jamie Carragher has branded Gary Neville ’s post-match comments on Manchester United “a load of nonsense.”

The former United full-back was speaking on Sky Sports about Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s current position at the club, after his side lost 2-0 to Manchester City in the derby game at Old Trafford.

Carragher was clearly unimpressed by the views of his TV sparring partner and shared his thoughts on Twitter.

He wrote: “What a load of nonsense it is that because Jose (Mourinho)/LVG (Louis Van Gaal) failed at Manchester United, they shouldn’t look for a better manager.”

His followers seemed to agree with him, believing Solskjaer is treated differently to those who came before him.

One wrote: “Both won stuff and are deemed failures, yet Ole still gets a pass after losing every semi/final he’s been in.”

Another added: “A Liverpool legend doing more for us than our own.”

A third agreed: “Thank you, can’t believe a Liverpool fan has more common sense than a so-called Manchester United one. Gary Neville is just trying to protect his mate, if it was anyone else, he would be screaming for the sack.”

Neville has continued to support his former teammate despite a number of poor results this season.

The latest home defeat follows a 0-5 humbling against Liverpool in October.

Jurgen Klopp’s side strolled past their rivals, with help from a Mohamed Salah hat-trick.

This prompted a change in system, with United switching to three at the back.

Despite being successful against Tottenham Hotspur, City did not give them any joy.

A seventh minute own goal from Eric Bailly instantly put them on the back foot, before Bernardo Silva doubled the lead before half time.

While the score line was not as alarming as the Liverpool game, there is no hiding United were miles off the pace.

The defeat leaves six points behind their Manchester rivals in the Premier League table.
