Pundit Vinnie Jones has warned “cowardly” Jamie Carragher for spitting at a young female football fan and says he should be sacked by Sky Sports.
Shocking footage emerged of TV pundit and former Liverpool skipper Carragher spitting in the face of a 14-year-old girl after her father mocked him about Manchester United’s 2-1 win over Liverpool on Saturday.
He has since issued an apology for his actions but that does not seem to be enough to pacify former footie hardman, Vinnie Jones, who bashed him in colourful fashion.
“It is cowardly,” Jones told talkSPORT.
“How has the lad driving it not driven after Jamie, rammed him, dragged him out of the car and beat seven… you know what I mean.
“If someone spat at my daughter sitting in the car, I would have been after them. There is no sitting on the fence here, Jamie is down the road – down the Jobcentre tomorrow.
“Spitting at 14-year-olds through a window? He is presenting on the TV. For Christ’s sake, he is supposed to be one of the top men. You can’t condone that whatsoever. It is filth, it is absolute filth.”
The teenage United fan was sitting in the passenger seat while her father was driving and talking to Carragher about the game.
When the girl’s dad teased the former England defender by repeatedly mentioning the score, Carragher first said ‘alright’ before spitting at the car.
The former Liverpool skipper apologised on Sunday through Twitter:
“Totally out of order & Ive apologised personally to all the family this evening. I was goaded 3/4 times along the motorway while being filmed & lost my rag. No excuse apologies.”
Former Newcastle and QPR midfielder Joey Barton expressed his surprise at Carragher’s actions.
“If Jamie is that annoyed he should just keep his window up, or just tell him to mind his own business,” Barton was quoted by the Independent.
“I’ve done a lot of stupid stuff, and we all get stick, but to do that? Surely he’s got to see the fact there’s a young girl in the car… he’s got kids himself!
“Why is he that emotionally attached to the game? He should be an impartial pundit.
“Look, he’s made a mistake but say that was me, I think my position should rightly be under fire and I think his will be.”
It is indeed a shameful act and Carragher should have rather behaved for the respected figure that he is.
Former Red believes Jose Mourinho could get sacked if Man United lose to Liverpool
Former Liverpool star Jamie Redknapp believes that a loss for Manchester United against Liverpool will inevitably lead to Jose Mourinho’s sacking.
The two giants of Premier League football meet on Sunday, and the Reds are 16 points ahead of United after just 16 games this season.
Liverpool are the only unbeaten side in the Premier League and are giving Manchester City a run for their money in the race for the title.
The Reds know a win will keep them on top of the table while a loss for United could scupper their chances of a top-four finish.
“These sorts of games are season-definers. They are the ones that fans wait for. If United win, it will be, ‘Wow, okay, we’ve got to give this guy more time. He can turn it around’.
“But if they lose it will become a situation where you have a snowball effect. The inquest will be so big afterwards and it might feel that it’s all becoming inevitable for Jose.”
The former Red claimed that losing to Manchester City would be acceptable as they are one of the best sides in the world but a loss to the Reds would be too much.
United do have a decent record against us in the Premier League with Jurgen Klopp in charge. Hopefully, we get the win on Sunday and keep our title dreams alive.
“Do I have to win it?” – Jurgen Klopp responds to Jose Mourinho’s latest trophy jibe
The United manager was speaking ahead of our clash against the Red Devils, and Klopp was not going to have any of it.
The German claimed that anything less than a trophy would not be considered as a failure after our great start to the season (h/t Liverpool Echo).
“Do I have to? Do I have to win it?”
“People might remember that but what I have to do is make the best of the things the club is offering me – that is what I believe in.”
The manager also spoke about the Champions League ride last season, claiming it was brilliant, even if we didn’t win the title.
Klopp also claimed that life wouldn’t be great if it was only about doing the best all the time.
“I enjoyed it a lot. Going to the final was fantastic but in life – in all departments of life including your job – if only the best counts and effort doesn’t count then life is s***.
“You can do whatever you want but if I’m not as smart as Einstein or whatever, I can’t try a little bit? I will never be him.
“I love the challenge. Make the best of it. That is how I understand life, I learned it a little bit in football. In the end other people have to judge that.”
The manager is yet to win a trophy during his time at Liverpool, but came close by making it to three finals. Liverpool have made their best start ever in the club’s history, and lead the Premier League after 16 games.
Klopp could certainly make this season even better with a win over United on Sunday, a feat the German has never achieved in the Premier League.
Liverpool star claims this action against Napoli was similar to scoring a goal
Alisson produced the moment of our Champions League campaign when he saved in the dying seconds from Arkadiusz Milik.
The save ensured Liverpool defeated Napoli in our final group game 1-0, and we can now think about the knockout rounds.
“A save at the end of the game is always great and you feel you have contributed to the game.
“Of course, an important save in the first minute is as important as a save in the last minute but for the fans it’s the closest thing to scoring a goal in the last minute, like we did in the derby against Everton.”
The former Roma keeper also thanked the teammates for helping secure the win.
“But I only managed to make that save with the help of my teammates’ contribution and thank God we got the victory.”
The next test for the Brazilian would be the clash against Manchester United. A win will keep us at the top of the table, and we need to put United to the sword on Sunday.
Alisson was excellent in our draw against Chelsea in the Premier League and has only grown in stature. Hopefully, the Brazilian puts up a fantastic performance against our arch rivals.
