Jamie Carragher was on top form while covering Manchester United’s Champions League exit

Jamie Carragher turned in one of the best performances of his punditry career last night as Manchester United crashed out of the Champions League.

United lost 3-2 to RB Leipzig in Germany but they could’ve equalised in the dying embers to qualify from Group H.

Paul Pogba put a cross in the box that ricocheted off Nordi Mukiele and onto goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi’s legs.

It was inches away from going in and former Liverpool man Carragher, who was working as a pundit for CBS Sports, couldn’t contain his joy.

He was on top form throughout the night and it begun with a cheeky dig at former teammates Pepe Reina and Lucas Leiva.

The duo started in Lazio’s 2-2 draw with Club Brugge and when asked about them, Carragher remarked: “Well that’s probably why they haven’t kept a clean sheet yet!”

Carragher then turned his attention to best frenemy and Sky Sports co-worker Gary Neville on Twitter.

With United losing 3-0, the 42-year-old posted a photo of himself next to the scoreline captioned: “#ChampionsLeague @GNev2 ‘They’ve not backed the manager.’

The previous day on Monday Night Football, Carragher had made his feelings known on United’s record signing Pogba.
