Roy Keane shuts down Jamie Carragher while talking about Liverpool on Sky Sports


Even if fireworks weren’t guaranteed during Sunday’s two Premier League fixtures, they were inside the Sky Sports studio.

Graeme Souness, Jose Mourinho and Roy Keane were all on punditry duty for the West Ham v Man Utd and Chelsea v Liverpool matches.

Three men with some of the biggest egos in football - what could possibly go wrong?

They had plenty to discuss thanks to terrible United’s 2-0 defeat at the London Stadium and Liverpool’s 2-1 victory at Stamford Bridge.

And by and large, all three men seemed to be singing from the same hymn sheet on most of the day’s key talking points. It’s just lucky that Paul Pogba wasn’t playing.

However, there was one somewhat awkward moment when Jamie Carragher joined the party later in the show.

The former Liverpool defender was making the point that things probably aren’t as bad for Man Utd as some people are making out, highlighting the transformation that Luis Suarez made at Anfield following his arrival back in 2011.

“I know they were poor today but it’s never as bad as you think,” Carragher argued. “Sometimes you just need those two or three players. I think of Luis Suarez coming to Liverpool. Liverpool for four or five years were finishing sixth and seventh - exactly where United are at - almost won the title when Suarez came in.

“Sometimes that one player can make a huge difference…”

At this point he was interrupted by Keane, who said: “Jamie: you just said almost won a title, you didn’t win a title.”


Ouch. Typically savage from Keane.

Watch it here...

Carragher’s face was an absolute picture.


Carragher went on to argue that Liverpool at least bridged that gap with Suarez in their squad.

Keane simply replied: “That’s right. But Liverpool are still trying to bridge that gap.”


Sadly for Carragher, Keane has signed up with Sky Sports indefinitely.
