Everyone has an opinion on the Jamie Carragher spitting incident.

Some, like Vinnie Jones, are demanding Carragher be sacked after footage of him spitting at a Manchester United supporter and his 14-year-old daughter went viral.

Others, such as Gary Neville, believe the former Liverpool centre-back deserves a second chance.

“I’ve been on TV for 3 years with him and imo this isolated incident shouldn’t stop us working together,” Neville wrote on Twitter on Monday.

Carragher has been suspended by Sky Sports and it remains to be seen whether he will appear as a pundit or co-commentator for the remainder of the season.

It was clear in his interview with Sky News on Monday that the 40-year-old is deeply sorry for the events that happened after Liverpool’s 2-1 defeat to Man United on Saturday.


Man United fan's Carragher video goes viral

Allegiances come into things and while many Liverpool supporters feel that sacking him would be harsh, some Man United fans believe Sky Sports have no choice.

But Carragher has received backing from one devoted Man United supporter, whose Facebook video has gone viral.

Graeme Keast has caused a stir among football fans with his video, which has been shared on Facebook more than 9,000 times.


“The headlines that he spat at a 14-year-old are a bit harsh,” Keast says. “Unfortunately there was a 14-year-old there when he spat towards the gent.

“Firstly, we don’t see the videos beforehand where he’s probably goading Jamie.

“But listen to his daughter in the video: ‘stop it, stop it dad, stop it.’ Before Jamie Carragher puts his window down, the girl is saying ‘stop doing this’.

“He’s more a**ed about making some f***ing viral video towards Jamie Carragher than he is his daughter.”

Keast is totally against the idea that Carragher deserves to lose his job.

“And Jamie Carragher should all of a sudden lose his job? Come on, do me a favour,” he added.

“Jamie Carragher lost his mind and he did something wrong, but he should not lose his job over it.”

Keast went on to cite Joey Barton and Wayne Rooney, both of whom have fulfilled media duties despite being caught in controversial incidents off-the-pitch.

He certainly makes a very good case in defence of Carragher.
