Liverpool icon Jamie Carragher trolls Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand over Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Peter Schmeichel gets the heat for Man City transfer


Jamie Carragher was aiming for brutal digs against two Manchester United legends as the Liverpool icon set about trolling his rivals.

Rio Ferdinand and Peter Schmeichel fell victim to a tough week for the Red Devils, and Carragher had no mercy for either.

Carragher loved life

Former England center-back Ferdinand was one of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s greatest cheerleaders during his tenure as goalkeeper three years ago.

When the Norwegian staged Man United’s famous Champions League win over Paris Saint-Germain to reach the quarter-finals of the competition in 2019, he loved every minute of it.

Live on BT Sport he said: “Man United may not thank me, but take out the contract, put it on the table, let him sign, let him write down the numbers he wants to put in it considering what he’s done since he came in and let him sign the contract and go.

“Ole’s driving, man – he does his thing. Man United are back!

And after Michael Carrick, United’s new interim boss following Solskjaer’s sacking, helped his side secure a 2-0 victory over Villarreal and advance to the Champions League round of 16, Carragher failed could withstand a search.

He tweeted: “Man Utd might not thank me, but get the contract, put it on the table and let him sign it, let him fix the numbers he wants, let him sign the contract . Carrick’s driving, man!

Carragher was not done there either as he spent a ruthless night at the expense of former enemies.

Danish hero Schmeichel was also a target after claiming he “would do anything for this club”.

Schmeichel is arguably United and the Premier League’s top scorer, winning match after match for the Red Devils with stunning saves.

Schmeichel said he would do anything for his old team

Schmeichel won it all playing under Sir Alex Ferguson between 1991 and 1999, alongside teammate Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Solskjaer was dismissed as United boss after a series of humiliating defeats that culminated in a 4-1 loss to relegation fighters Claudio Ranier at Watford.

And although he doesn’t have a management resume to speak of, Schmeichel was asked by fellow expert Micah Richards if he would do the same as Solskjaer and parachute to save his club.

“I would do anything for this club. I would like. Of course I would, I would help them in any way I could, ”he said.

But Carragher was quick to raise a glaring issue with Schmeichel’s stated loyalty to United, referring to his plight as their city rivals …

“You signed for Man City, didn’t you? Carragher said with great amusement in the CBS studio.

As Carragher and Richards laughed at Schmeichel’s reaction, the Dane climbed for the only comeback he could think of that would hurt former Liverpool defender Carragher.

“You know what’s really, really interesting, after Jurgen Klopp wins a Premier League, all of a sudden you’re right up there, sitting up there watching us.”
