Transfer: You’ll regret it – Carragher warns Liverpool over Mohamed Salah

Liverpool legend, Jamie Carragher has warned the club’s owners they will never be forgiven if they allow Mohamed Salah to leave the club. Salah’s current deal at Liverpool runs until the summer of 2023 and the player wants to remain at Anfield. Carragher is of the opinion that the club should not hesitate to give the player whatever he wants despite the Egypt International reportedly demanding to become the highest paid player in the Premier League. “Those two players [Salah and Mane] are obviously a big miss and this talk of Salah’s contract will probably intensify even more because when he is not there, you see the effect it has,” Carragher told Sky Sports after Arsenal’s 0-0 draw at Anfield. As a Liverpool supporter you should be wary that this [Salah’s contract situation]...

You’re lazy – Hasselbaink, Souness slam Liverpool star

Former Chelsea striker, Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, and Liverpool legend, Graeme Souness, have criticised Reds defender, Virgil van Dijk for his ‘lazy’ defending. This was after Liverpool threw away a two-goal lead against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday. Liverpool, through Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah, were ahead a few minutes into the first half but they were pegged back by the interval after Mateo Kovacic halved the deficit and Christian Pulisic equalised. While Liverpool could not stop Kovacic’s stunning long-range strike, Pulisic was allowed to race through and shoot on goal with little pressure. Hasselbaink was quick to criticise the Netherlands international for his decision, agreeing with Liverpool legend Souness that Van Dijk was ‘lazy’. “He’s just running in ...

Liverpool legend names ‘brainless’ player in Chelsea squad

Liverpool legend, Steve Nicol has branded Romelu Lukaku as ‘brainless’ after Chelsea’s record signing publicly aired his grievances with Thomas Tuchel. Lukaku had in an interview aired on Thursday said he was ‘not happy’ at Chelsea and wanted to return to Inter Milan. The Belgian has since returned to the Blues lineup, scoring some vital goals for the team. Nicol believes the interview was ill-advised and fears he has done irreparable damage to his relationship with the club’s fans especially when he talked about returning to Inter Milan. “It’s kind of brainless, isn’t it. It’s some really brainless things to say,” Nicol told ESPN FC. “Listen whenever you get pulled up when you’ve slaughtered somebody then you will start to spin it the other way and say ‘oh I didn’t mean t...

Jamie Carragher Snubs Liverpool, names team to win Premier League title this season

Liverpool legend, Jamie Carragher has backed Manchester City to lift the Premier League title this season ahead of Chelsea and Liverpool. Chelsea managed a 1-1 draw with Manchester United on Sunday to keep their place at the top of the table. But Manchester City’s 2-1 win over West ham meant that Chelsea are now only one point ahead of Pep Guardiola’s side . Liverpool, who thrashed Southampton 4-0 earlier on Saturday, are just two points off the top. Carragher noted that both Chelsea and Liverpool have been impressive so far but still tipped City to defend their title. Carragher added, “It’s been a good weekend for Liverpool but they’ve dropped some silly points this season so I’m with Roy, I think I’d probably just go with Man City. “Liverpool have kept a...

Thierry Henry, Carragher terms Cristiano Ronaldo big problem for Man United

Arsenal and Liverpool legend, Thierry Henry, and Jamie Carragher have both criticised Cristiano Ronaldo, describing him as the passenger in Manchester United. They accused Cristiano Ronaldo of lack of defensive contribution to the squad and feel the Portugal star is a ‘massive problem’ for the next Manchester United manager. Ronaldo scored again when Man United beat Villarreal 2-0 in Spain in midweek, taking his tally in the Champions League this season to six. He has also bagged four goals and two assists in the English top-flight in what has been a largely productive return to Old Trafford. Carragher and Henry feel Ronaldo’s individual stats are obscuring his detrimental impact on the team. “How can a club the size of Manchester United still rely on a guy who’s [nearly] ...

Mauricio Pochettino told to ‘get out’ of PSG immediately after 2-1 defeat to Man City

Liverpool legend, Jamie Carragher wants Pochettino to ‘get out of’ PSG as quickly as possible and head to Manchester United if the Red Devils come calling for him.

Jamie Carragher mocks Rio Ferdinand after Man Utd’s 2-0 win over Villarreal

Liverpool legend, Jamie Carragher has told Manchester United to give the vacant permanent job position to caretaker manager, Michael Carrick. The former Premier League star also mocked United legend, Rio Ferdinand’s memorable ‘Ole’s at the wheel’ outburst. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was sacked on Sunday and Carrick was placed as the caretaker manager as the club’s hierarchy search for a more experienced gaffer. Carrick led United to a 2-0 win against Villarreal in the Champions League on Tuesday night. When United knocked PSG out of the Champions League in March 2019, Rio Ferdinand called on the club to give Solskjaer the United job immediately when he was standing in on an interim basis.

Man United have only won one of their last four matches under Solskjaer and have suffered defeats to Leicester City, Liverpool and Manchester City recently. But Carragher believes Solskjaer is not being ‘judged solely on the quality of his work’ and that Man United have stuck with the Norwegian because of his ’emotional attachment’ with the Red Devils fans. “There will be those who will argue Arteta should be included in the group alongside Lampard, Pirlo and Solskjaer as a notable ex-player struggling to prove he is an elite coach at the club he played for,” he told The T...
