Jamie Carragher Trolls Gary Neville After Liverpool Comeback

Gary Neville was enjoying himself as Liverpool looked like they could be on the wrong end of a huge European comeback, but in the end it was Jamie Carragher left laughing at his mate.


On Tuesday night, Liverpool faced Villarreal in the second leg of their Champions League semi final, taking a two goal lead to El Madrigal.

After being called a 'disgrace to the Champions League' in the first game, Villarreal were expected to show fight at home but no one was thinking Unai Emery's side had much chance, despite previous shocks against Juventus and Bayern Munich.

They proved everyone wrong early in Spain though, with Boulaye Dia putting his side ahead in just the third minute, to rapturous scenes in the stands.

It wasn't just the Villarreal fans who enjoyed the goal though, with Neville getting straight on Twitter to post a picture of him enjoying a glass of red wine, with a stunned look on his face.

Things then got even better for both Villarreal and, more importantly to this article, Neville. After Mohamed Salah has missed Liverpool's best chance, the hosts thought they should have had a penalty.

The referee thought Giovani Lo Celso had jumped into Alisson, rather than the other way round, and VAR agreed, but just minutes later it was 2-0.

Francis Coquelin headed home whilst unmarked in the box, from Etienne Capoue's cross, levelling things up on aggregate and getting Neville back on social media for another post.

However, the Manchester United legend, who was picked by Roy Keane for his all time United XI on Monday, didn't have much to smile about in the second half.

The introduction by Jurgen Klopp of Luis Diaz, plus an absolute and utter disasterclass from Villarreal goalkeeper Geronimo Rulli in the second half turned things on their head.

Fabinho, Diaz and Sadio Mane all got on the scoresheet, with the host's keeper playing a part in all three goals, as Liverpool ended up winning the tie 5-2.

Neville reacted by nearly crying into his wine glass and things only got worse for him as fellow Sky Sports pundit Carragher was ready to pounce.

The former Liverpool defender, who was no doubt as worried as many of the Reds fans at half time, had three excellent tweets for Neville all ready to go.

First of all Carra retweeted his frenemy almost as soon as the full time whistle sounded, also taking jabs at all United, Manchester City and Everton fans.

And then he followed it up with two hilarious reaction pictures of Neville, you'd like to think he has a whole folder of these saved somewhere.

Football's greatest surprise bromance will never not be entertaining!
