Salford City FC Sack Manager Richie Wellens Four Months Into His Job

Salford, owned by the 'Class of 92,' won their first silverware since becoming a football league club when they won the 2020 Papa John's Trophy just nine days ago.

However that has not been enough to keep Wellens in the job, despite the former United youngster only taking the reins in November 2020.

Carragher rarely needs an invitation to mock his fellow Sky Sports pundit and commentator and the Liverpool legend couldn't help himself once the news broke.

Carragher wasn't finished there either, he took to Twitter a second time to use the former England full backs words against him.

In the past the 46-year-old from Bury has been a strong advocate of giving managers longer in their jobs, something Carra noted.

Despite the recent victory over Portsmouth at Wembley, in the EFL Trophy final, Salford's form in League Two has been poor in recent times.

Neville was in attendance as the team lost 2-0 to Cheltenham Town on Saturday and they have won only once in their previous eight games.

The team are now six points off the play-off places and promotion to League One this season is looking tricky, which is likely to have been the deciding factor to sack the manager.
