Jamie Carragher Mocks Gary Neville with his ‘favourite moment of 2016’

The banter between Sky Sports pundits Jamie Carragher and Gary Neville never ceases. Really, it never ceases.

Gary Neville’s first foray into management ended before it had begun, with the former Manchester United captain sacked by Valencia in an announcement nearly as surprising as his initial appointment in December, 2015.

Although Neville will undoubtedly feel that he should have been given more time, the statistics at the time of his sacking were damning.

Valencia gained just 14 points from his 16 league games at the helm and a run of three consecutive defeats, culminating in a 2-0 home loss against Celta Vigo left them just six points clear of the relegation zone.

So it should come as no surprise that, when asked for his ‘favourite moment of 2016, former Liverpool defender and arch rival Jamie Carragher managed to spin his answer to take a swipe at Neville.

“Gary Neville at Valencia!” Oh, I wonder if he’s watching!”

The hysterical response from the sofas, if shown to Gary, could send him into temporary shock.

Ah well, Neville’s ill-fated stint in La Liga won’t be quickly forgotten, even in 2017.
