Gary Neville gloats about winning bet with Jamie Carragher over Paulinho

Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher have shared more than a few crossed words during their time together in the television studio - however it's certainly the former Liverpool man who has come off worse this time round.

The Manchester United legend has revealed on Twitter this afternoon that his foe has lost a bet on the amount of goals Paulinho would score for Tottenham last season.

The Brazilian is on the cusp of a move after a disastrous two-year spell with Tottenham, having joined the club for £17 million in the aftermath of Gareth Bale's world record transfer to Real Madrid.

According to Neville, Carragher was confident that Paulinho would manage 15 goals in a season during his time in England - however he failed to find the net during the last campaign and scored six times during his first season.

The former Corinthians ace is seemingly on the verge of calling time on his career in England with a move to Chinese side Guangzhou Evergrand - and Neville has taken to Twitter to reveal Carragher's forfeit for losing the bet.

He wrote: "Twitter @Carra23 needs to wear a G.Nev united shirt for the day! He's lost a bet that Paulinho wouldn't score 15 PL goals in a season!"


Carragher made more than 500 appearances for Liverpool during his 16-year career, and helped the club win the Champions League in 2005 as well as two FA Cups as well as the UEFA Cup.

He took the news in typically good grace - or not as the case may be - responding to Neville's tweet: "Send me one I don't want to take the framed one down off the bedroom wall. 15 in the season not just prem!"

Who is the better TV pundit - Gary Neville or Jamie Carragher?
