Sky Sports Pits Team Of Gary Nevilles Against Team Of Jamie Carraghers On Football Manager

Sky Sports' Monday Night Football reached peak levels of entertainment after Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher settled their differences in a Football Manager match.

There was a brilliant twist added in for the match, however, with it being a whole team of Nevilles against a whole team of Carraghers.

And who are the managers for both teams? Yes, they are none other than the Manchester United legend and Liverpool legend!

Player profiles from both Sky Sports pundits are used from when they won the Champions League with their respective teams. Additionally, it is the same player being used in both teams, so it is Neville from the 1998/1999 season and Carragher from the 2004/2005 season.

"Inspired by the 'We all dream of a team of Carraghers' chant sung by Liverpool fans, we wanted to find out who would win between a 'Team of Carraghers' and a 'Team of Nevilles,'" Sky Sports said.

"Gary and Jamie go head-to-head with their teams on Football Manager, chose their formations and tactics to try and come out victorious."

Check out the video below.


The match ends 4-4. Spoiler: Neville scored four times for his side, while Carragher bagged four for his team (who else was it going to be, right?).

The two ex-footballers have also had their say on United's upcoming match with Liverpool on Monday Night Football, with Neville and Carragher picking their combined XIs.

Meanwhile, the former United right-back has revealed his interesting thoughts on Steven Gerrard's infamous slip against Chelsea in 2014.




Who will win out of Liverpool and United?
