Alejandro Garnacho's brother trolls Liverpool and Jamie Carragher with X-rated comment

Alejandro Garnacho's brother trolls Liverpool and Jamie Carragher with X-rated comment

Man Utd star Garnacho's brother made the comment after Liverpool lost 3-0 to Atalanta.

The brother of Manchester United star Alejandro Garnacho has trolled Jamie Carragher and Liverpool after the 3-0 defeat to Atalanta.

Liverpool suffered defeat to the Italian side at Anfield in the first leg of their Europa League quarter-final clash on Thursday evening.

The loss ended their 33-game unbeaten run at home, with the manner of defeat and scoreline the biggest shock of the evening.

Jurgen Klopp's side did have early chances, but former West Ham forward Gianluca Scamacca put the visitors ahead from Davide Zappacosta's cross.

It was then 2-0 on 60 minutes, Scamacca firing a first-time effort into the bottom corner after being left completely unmarked in the penalty area.

Liverpool then saw a Mohamed Salah goal ruled out for offside, before Mario Pasalic put the finishing touches on the scoreline from close range after Caoimhin Kelleher parried Ederson's effort.

The Reds' defeat came days after a 2-2 draw with Manchester United at Old Trafford - a result which could yet prove pivotal in their Premier League title pursuit.

And after the match, the brother of Garnacho - who scored United's opener on Sunday - decided to aim a cheeky dig at Liverpool and Reds legend Carragher.

Taking to Twitter, he bluntly told Carragher: "Your team is absolutely dogs**t."

Carragher wasn't exactly enamoured by Liverpool's performance either - although he didn't use quite the same words on social media, and hasn't yet replied to the above post.

Instead, he decided to give his verdict on the Reds' display, and also picked out the one positive from the heavy 3-0 defeat at Anfield that could prove to serve Klopp's side well for the rest of the season.

He wrote: "Awful result and performance from Liverpool.

"The only consolation about getting beat so heavily is Jurgen should play a full second string in the second leg and go all in for the league!"
