Jamie Carragher fires back at Pep Guardiola after Man City manager's brutal Liverpool dig
| Last updated
Jamie Carragher has fired back at Pep Guardiola after the Manchester City boss’ comments on Liverpool.
The City boss passionately defended his side after back-to-back draws to Liverpool and Tottenham.
In the wake of the club’s 3-3 draw with Spurs, Sky Sports pundits, including Carragher, debated City’s chances of winning a record fourth successive Premier League title.
And Guardiola took issue with Carragher’s comments, bringing up the fact he never won the league title in his career during Tuesday’s press conference. Watch the video below.
"Maybe, maybe I'm wrong and they are seeing everything that I'm not able to see, but I don't have that feeling," the City manager declared, having also noted Gary Neville's failure to win four in a row with Manchester United. "Jamie Carragher didn't win one (league title). Micah Richards didn't win four Premier Leagues in a row. Never, ever."
Responding to Guardiola's savage dig, Carragher took to X, formerly known as Twitter, and cited the 115 charges issued against City by the Premier League.
Writing on X, Carragher said: "I think I'd have probably won one if Liverpool were owned by a nation-state, and pushed the rules so far that the PL charged us 115 times!! I was actually praising Pep's team after the game on Sunday."
In his press conference, ahead of City’s game with Aston Villa, Guardiola stressed he felt City could win the Premier League once more.
The Spaniard said: "I have a feeling that if we maintain that level, we’ll win the Premier League. We will win it again.
"If we (could) maintain the level of Liverpool and Tottenham, I'll sign for it right now. We didn't win 5-0 - we drew - but I'd sign right now (for) my team (to) behave the way we've played the last two games. I don't know if we can sustain that all season and that is the challenge.
"I don't have anything to say about the pundits. Maybe I'm wrong but I don’t think it’s about complacency. I know the players, I know how they run. How we behave is extraordinary.
"He knows how difficult it is otherwise Gary Neville would've won four Premier Leagues in the best period of Manchester United. But he didn't do it. I see my team, how they fight, how they press, how they continue until the end and how upset they are after we concede."
