Jamie Carragher has suggested that the likes of Jurgen Klopp, Pep Guardiola and Thomas Tuchel “could win the league” with Manchester United’s squad.
This follows from predictions issued by both the former Liverpool star and his fellow Sky Sports pundit, Gary Neville, with both commentators backing Manchester City for the title.
To the ex-centre-half’s credit, he did admit that it was possible his old club were being overlooked for the current campaign.
“I think Liverpool have a better team, a better manager, they only finished six points behind United last season despite having no centre backs for most of the season,” the Englishman was quoted as saying by Give Me Sport. “And I think maybe Liverpool are going under the radar and some people – myself included – are forgetting how good they were for a couple of years.”
Nonetheless, it feels somewhat bizarre to think that Carragher has insinuated Klopp would be more capable of winning the league with United’s squad rather than his own formidable Liverpool outfit.
