Gary Neville makes request of Sky Sports, who suspend Carragher

Posted by

Gary Neville has defended Jamie Carragher on Twitter.

The former Liverpool centre-back has been suspended by Sky Sports for spitting at a Manchester United fan following the Old Trafford game on Saturday lunchtime.

As a result, he won’t be on Monday Night Football this evening.

A road user wound him up and Carra, clearly very angry, retaliated by launching a mouthful of saliva out his car window.

It hit a 14-year-old girl and the father, the instigator, sold the video to the press.

Neville though wants Carra to be given his job back after his suspension.

Carra: ‘I didn’t see her…’ ‘I hate that she’s involved’

Fair play to Neville. Many in the media are getting on their high-horse and it would have been possible for a United legend to do the same.

But he’s reacted fairly.

We think Carra’s actions were pretty appalling, but think he should be given another chance.
