Gary Neville breaks 11 year tradition on Monday Night Football and 'gets slaughtered'
| Last updated
Gary Neville surprised Jamie Carragher on Monday Night Football by breaking an 11 year tradition ahead of Liverpool's game with Leicester City.
Neville and Carragher's frenemy status has never been questioned throughout their years as pundits on Sky Sports together, especially on MNF.
The pair were fierce rivals in their playing days but these days mix friendly banter with having a go at each other in the studio and on social media.
On Monday, the former Manchester United star opened himself up to the latest round of criticism when he arrived at the Sky studio.
Walking onto the set, the 48-year-old explained how he was breaking his tradition of always wearing a full suit and tie get up on the show.
As you can see in the video below, Neville predicted that his attire would cause some criticism from the Liverpool legend and he was spot on.
He turned up wearing a suit jacket but he had a t-shirt underneath and was even wearing trainers instead of smart shoes, as Carra instantly noted.
Fans on social media were also commenting on Neville's fashion choices, "Jamie's face and him telling you off for no tie," laughed one.
"You’ll be in a roll top jumper come winter. Inspired by Pep," predicted a second.
Another was enjoying the banter, adding, "Love the dynamic between you and Carra."
Following the end of Arsenal's title race, a fourth replied, "Should be wearing a shirt and tie for Arsenal's funeral."
"All black to Arsenals funeral," said another along the same lines.
Neville had been predicting for quite some time that he didn't believe Arsenal were going to win the Premier League, and he seemed to be vindicated at the weekend.
The Gunners' defeat to Brighton, coupled with Manchester City's latest win, means that it's highly unlikely that Mikel Arteta's team will be crowned champions.
However despite being proved to be spot on the former United captain was being criticised on Monday for being biased against the north Londoners.
Not one to stand down from any opposition, the Sky pundit got himself involved with fans of the title challengers, having some fun with them.
