'It's Unbelievable' - Jamie Carragher Hits Out At Roy Keane And Gary Neville Over Man United 'Excuses'
| Last updated
United are fourth in the Premier League table and are only two points adrift from league leaders Chelsea, but the club have picked up mixed results this season.
Young Boys caused a stunning upset against United in their opening Champions League clash before West Ham knocked the Red Devils out of the Carabao Cup.
Jadon Sancho, Cristiano Ronaldo and Raphael Varane all arrived at Old Trafford in the summer, with pressure mounting on Solskjaer to lift a major title with United.
Carragher has now taken aim at Solskjaer’s former teammates Keane and Neville, saying the latter is “permanently making excuses” for the United manager.
Speaking on BBC’s Tony Bellew Is Angry podcast, the Liverpool legend said: “It must be something to do with football… and it must be something to do with Neville.
“He’s permanently making excuses for his mate Ole, isn’t he? I did a newspaper column on it -- I was with Gary Neville a few days before and we did this YouTube chat about the season with Roy Keane.
“The two of them just make occasions for Ole because they played with him and he’s their mate.
“They were saying, ‘They can’t win the league, they still lack this, they still lack that, the Glazers aren’t putting enough money in, they should be going for Harry Kane.’
“I’m sitting there thinking, ‘You’ve just signed a player that’s won the Champions League four times, you’ve just spent 75million on a winger. You finished second last season, you didn’t lose a game away from home all season,’ and I’m like… ‘There’s only one step to go!’
“Honestly, it wound me up so much. I went, ‘That is it. I’m doing my newspaper column on it.’
“The excuses have got to stop at Manchester United, I’m sick of it. Every player is over 50million, it’s unbelievable.”
United will face Leicester City at the King Power on 16th October before hosting Atalanta at Old Trafford for their Champions League clash on 20th October.
