Jamie Carragher on Man United TV
A clip is doing the rounds on social media this week of when former Liverpool centre-half Jamie Carragher appeared on MUTV.
Carragher was doing the co-commentary for Man United’s match against Huddersfield Town.
Man United won the Boxing Day clash 3-1 at Old Trafford.
However one United supporter called up MUTV after the game to complain about Carragher.
The case was made that Carragher is biased against Man United when he’s on Sky Sports.
Lou Macari and Wes Brown were the former players on MUTV at the time.
As they were discussing Carragher’s perceived bias against Man United, the pundit popped up on set.
Macari said: “If I could get my hands on Jamie Carragher right now…”
Then Carragher popped up on set claimed Man United “weren’t bad” against Huddersfield.
Cue the laughs and happy faces from everyone involved.
Enjoy the short clip from MUTV below.

Are there too many ex-Liverpool players in the media?
In the Times this week chief football writer Henry Winter has looked into which ex-pros dominate the media landscape.
Are there too many former Liverpool players on TV and radio? Are Liverpool over-represented? Henry Winter assessed the situation as follows:
Talk to fans of other clubs and they frequently claim a media love-in with Liverpool. One Chelsea diehard totted up the number of former Liverpool players working as pundits and, exhausted, stopped at 44. Manchester United alumni fill studios, too.
Most of the former United and Liverpool pundits are pretty objective… And yet there is this perception of Liverpool being the media darlings.
