Jamie Carragher digs out Gary Neville and Roy Keane over Man Utd “excuses”

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is facing increasing scrutiny, but ex-Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher believes his former team-mates have been making too many excuses

Sir Alex suggests Solskjaer should have started Ronaldo

Jamie Carragher has warned his Manchester United pals in the media that the time for excuses has to stop.

After finishing second last season, Old Trafford bosses were aggressive in the summer window in order to close the gap on champions Manchester City.

Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane were the first through the doors, signing for £73m and £34million respectively.

They then concluded the window with the stunning return of Cristiano Ronaldo.

The 36-year-old has already netted five times in his first seven games for the club, but after a run of just two wins in six games, the pressure is piling back on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Gary Neville and Roy Keane both lined up alongside the United boss during their playing days and Carragher believes the pair have been giving him an easy ride.

Asked what has recently annoyed the Liverpool legend, Carragher took aim at the two pundits.

“It must be something to do with football…and it must be something to do with Neville,” Carragher told BBC’s ‘Tony Bellew Is Angry’ podcast . “He’s permanently making excuses for his mate Ole, isn’t he?

“I did a newspaper column on it – I was with Gary Neville a few days before and we did this YouTube chat about the season with Roy Keane.

“The two of them just make occasions for Ole because they played with him and he’s their mate.

“They were saying, ‘they can’t win the league, they still lack this, they still lack that, the Glazers aren’t putting enough money in, they should be going for Harry Kane’.

“I’m sitting there thinking, ‘you’ve just signed a player that’s won the Champions League four times, you’ve just spent 75 million on a winger. You finished second last season, you didn’t lose a game away from home all season’, and I’m like…’there’s only one step to go!’.

“Honestly, it wound me up so much. I went, ‘that is it. I’m doing my newspaper column on it’.

“The excuses have got to stop at Manchester United, I’m sick of it. Every player is over 50 million, it’s unbelievable.”
