"Stick To Goalkeeping!" - Jamie Carragher And Peter Schmeichel Involved In Intense Live Debate Over Neymar

"Stick To Goalkeeping!" - Jamie Carragher And Peter Schmeichel Involved In Intense Live Debate Over Neymar

Jamie Carragher and Peter Schmeichel engaged in an intense debate over Neymar during Wednesday's game between Paris Saint-Germain and Atalanta - with Carragher getting the last laugh.

The Brazilian international played a key role in his side's 2-1 victory in the Champions League quarter-final and he dominated the ball.

However, the first half saw him miss a number of clear cut chances as Atalanta took a shock lead.

Schmeichel, who was was a pundit on CBS Sports for the game, admitted he wasn't impressed with the 28-year-old at the break and heaped praise on Atalanta instead.

Fellow Premier League legend Carragher hit back and defended Neymar to which the former Manchester United goalkeeper replied: "Please don't cry."

Kylian Mbappe's introduction in the second half inspired PSG to a late victory and when Neymar played a key part in both goals, Carragher immediately went for Schmeichel.

The ex-Liverpool man belted out: "What's Neymar done now, Schmeichel?! Only set the two of them up!

"Stick to goalkeeping!"

Fans on Twitter reacted to the exchange and they think it could go down as a vintage 'Carra' moment.

Schmeichel wouldn't backtrack however and replied with: "You know a little bit about football.

"I have to say I'm trying to compare him to players of the likes of [Cristiano] Ronaldo and [Lionel] Messi, [Diego] Maradona, [Robert] Lewandowski and actually Mbappe - I think he changed the game. I don't think Neymar was brilliant.

"But I'm so happy for you [Carragher] that you are happy that I was wrong.

"Let me just remind you, that you are out on your brackets - I had PSG! Forgot that?"
