Jamie Carragher Was On Top Form While Covering Manchester United's Champions League Exit

Jamie Carragher turned in one of the best performances of his punditry career last night as Manchester United crashed out of the Champions League.

United lost 3-2 to RB Leipzig in Germany but they could've equalised in the dying embers to qualify from Group H.

Paul Pogba put a cross in the box that ricocheted off Nordi Mukiele and onto goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi's legs.

It was inches away from going in and former Liverpool man Carragher, who was working as a pundit for CBS Sports, couldn't contain his joy.


He was on top form throughout the night and it begun with a cheeky dig at former teammates Pepe Reina and Lucas Leiva.

The duo started in Lazio's 2-2 draw with Club Brugge and when asked about them, Carragher remarked: "Well that's probably why they haven't kept a clean sheet yet!"

Carragher then turned his attention to best frenemy and Sky Sports co-worker Gary Neville on Twitter.

With United losing 3-0, the 42-year-old posted a photo of himself next to the scoreline captioned: "#ChampionsLeague @GNev2 'They've not backed the manager.'


The previous day on Monday Night Football, Carragher had made his feelings known on United's record signing Pogba.

Pogba's agent Mino Raiola told Tuttosport on Monday his time at the club is 'over' come the summer.

But 'Carra' didn't hold back David Jones and Freddie Ljungberg: "Get rid. I've been saying this for 12 months, oh my god, he is the most overrated player I've ever seen in my life.

"I think the two of them are a disgrace. We'll all blame the agent now and say 'ask Pogba', what does he think?

"Agents in this day and age, they're not just agents. They're a parent, they're a best friend, they're the financial advisor, they book holidays, they go away together.

"Those two will be like that. He'll be Pogba's best mate, so Pogba will be well aware of what was going to come out of his mouth.

"If he wasn't, he should sack his agent. It's very, very simple. That's all that needs to happen.

"I don't know where he's going to go, who is going to have him?"

It's never a dull day when Carragher is working as a pundit.
