Jamie Carragher: ‘Nobody wants to grow up to be a Gary Neville’ (Video)


Jamie Carragher and Gary Neville have provided plenty of light relief in their brief double act to date and there was another hilarious exchange between them on MNF this evening.


The two ex-defenders were discussing the art of defending before Swansea’s clash with Liverpool this evening when Carragher turned his attention to full-backs in particular.

The former Liverpool man, who played full-back and centre-back for the Reds, expressed his opinion that no player starts out wanting to play in the position but that players tend to end up there ‘by hook or by crook’.

Carragher wasn’t about to turn up the chance to have a cheeky dig at one of Manchester United and England’s best full-backs of the modern era and turned to his new best friend before saying ‘Nobody wants to grow up to be a Gary Neville,’ a line that Neville himself and host Ed Chamberlain got a great kick out of.

‘Top bantz’ as the cool kids might say.
