Carragher and Neville engage in a fiesty debate after United’s defeat


Pundits Jamie Carragher and Gary Neville engage in fiesty debate after United’s 3:0 defeat against Manchester City at Old Trafford.

Erling Haaland and Phil Foden scored the goals for the visitors as it was a comfortable victory for City. However, United have lost six of their last 8 derbies across all competitions.

Meanwhile, manager Eric Ten Hag is under lot of scrutiny as United lost five of their 10 ten fixtures in the Premier League this season. They spent over £200 million in the summer transfer window.

After the match, both Carragher and Neville engage in a debate wheather Ten Hag was the problem at Old Trafford. The Dutchman’s position at the club is under question.

Starting the debate, Carragher said on Sky Sports:-

“None of us here can still explain what Manchester United try to do, in terms of how they play. He’s [Ten Hag] been here now nearly 18 months, we’ve seen Unai Emery come in at Aston Villa, [Ange] Postecoglou at Tottenham.

“That doesn’t mean you win every week but, when you go to the games, you know what you’re going to see. We still don’t know what we’re going to see at Manchester United. You tell me how they play with the ball.

Neville is not happy with United’s ongoing ownership shuffle

Neville countered Carragher as he is not happy with United’s management. He said :-

“No. And Carra, to be honest with you, I can’t disagree with you. Those managers you are talking about come into stable environments. They [United] have currently got a guy over their heads a guy all over the news, [Sir Jim Ratcliffe] who is going to own 25% [of the club].

“Imagine you’re in a football club and the news is there is a guy [Ratcliffe] that will come in and wipe out the whole football department. Imagine what is going on in and around Ten Hag, it is toxic.

“I know you can say ‘carry on’, but imagine what’s happening. Jim Ratcliffe is going to come in with Dave Brailsford and they are going to sweep out the football department and they will all get moved away. That’s what’s happening.
