Jamie Carragher’s Twitter activity after Man Utd drew Juventus in the CL was superb

The Champions League group stage draw has now been decided.

Four English teams featured in the competition this year: Manchester United, Manchester City, Tottenham Hotspur and last season’s finalists Liverpool.

All were hoping to avoid the likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain to ensure they had the easiest possible passage to the knockout rounds.

City arguably ended up with the simplest draw of all the English teams with their group consisting of: Shakhtar Donetsk, Lyon and Hoffenheim.

Tottenham didn’t fare so well, however, drawing the very difficult group of Barcelona, Inter Milan and PSV Eindhoven.

Nevertheless, perhaps the most interesting fates being decided were those of Liverpool and United given their mixed fortunes so far this season.

Kopites nervously awaited the draw after Benfica’s play-off victory over PAOK ensured they landed themselves in the more difficult pot three.

Meanwhile, United supports will have had their fingers crossed for a kind draw after defeats to Brighton & Hove Albion and Tottenham in the league.

CARRAGHER’S TWITTER ACTIVITY
In the end, neither had the easiest of draws with Liverpool facing PSG, Napoli and Red Star Belgrade.

United’s draw read a little better with Valencia and Young Boys on hand but they’ll have to contend with Cristiano Ronaldo’s Juventus to bag themselves top spot.

It was such an unlucky draw for the Red Devils that Jamie Carragher couldn’t help mocking his rival and – in turn – Gary Neville.

Although he didn’t rustle up a tweet of his own, he let his Twitter activity do the talking and retweeted this brilliant video of Neville lamenting having to play Juventus.

Check it out below:

Credit to Joe.co.uk for finding such an old clip of Neville who can be seen in the video asking whether Juventus have qualified, being told they have and visibly bemoaning it.

It sets up a fairytale return for Cristiano Ronaldo who plied his trade at Old Trafford between 2003 and 2009 and recently switched to Juventus.

Speaking about the five-time Ballon d’Or winner during the World Cup, Jose Mourinho noted: “He’s got what I used to call the feeling of the game, the specific intelligence of playing football.

“And he has this little touch, this little extra feeling, and the goal is fantastic. The wall is correct, the goalkeeper is correct, but the flight of the ball is impossible to save. Top corner.”
