Jamie Carragher has showed off his Christmas jumper ahead of tonight’s festive edition of Friday Night Football – and naturally aimed a dig at Gary Neville in the process.
The main part of the jumper is adorned by a logo dedicated to Liverpool‘s 7-0 win over United in March, with the two teams facing off at Anfield in a repeat of that fixture on Sunday.
There is a picture of Carragher laughing directly at Neville alongside the speech bubble: “I wish I could relive this everyday…” – a play on words, of course, of the iconic Wizzard hit.
The song on the jumper continues with: “When the Kop starts singing, the Reds begin to play…”
While Carragher couldn’t hide his glee at the jumper, Neville bluntly responded: “Arrogance is a sure path to failure.”
But the Liverpool icon hit back, with his eye on Sunday’s clash: “Confidence. Confidence my friend.”
Neville, though, didn’t express too much confidence of United going to Anfield and getting a result.
Speaking on the Gary Neville Podcast last weekend, Neville said: “The thing that United have to fear most is that Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp are a professional bunch and they’ve done well over a seven-year period.
“My concern with this Manchester United team is that they haven’t got it in them to surprise us.
“[Anfield for a United player] can swallow you up, and if those players don’t stand up and stick that chest out next week and they don’t take the ball and show courage, it will eat you alive.
“That’s what they’ve got to prepare for next week. Courage to play.”
