Carragher mocks Erik ten Hag following Manchester United’s historic loss.
During their respective teams’ marquee match, Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher couldn’t help but mock Manchester United foe Peter Schmeichel.
The largest victory in the storied matchup was achieved by Liverpool over United at the weekend (7-0), which was also United’s worst loss since 1931.
Carragher had the good fortune to be at Anfield commentating on the game with Gary Neville, who he had previously lined up against in the same encounter. The game will go down in English football history.
After Cody Gakpo, Darwin Nunez, and Mohamed Salah each scored twice before Roberto Firmino made it seven, Sky Sports cameras filmed the former Reds center-back giddy with joy.
It was Schmeichel’s time when the two analysts teamed up for CBS’ coverage of the Champions League after Neville had already taken a beating from his teammate during and after the game.
Seated with a 7-Up bottle Carragher started shakily tossing the number into any questions posed to the former United keeper in order to represent the record score.
“Peter, I feel like it’s getting more significant now that we’re moving into March, the seventh of March,” he remarked, referring to the Champions League stage.
How crucial does it feel to be at the Bridge given how competitive these games are going into March 7th, as I said?
Jamie, we’re unable to hear you even though we can see that you’re speaking, Schmeichel said.
Another attempt was made by Carragher, who said, “Jude Bellingham is there, he’s a superstar, and we feel he’ll go on in the summer. What kind of price tag are we talking about? We believe it must begin with a seven and proceed from there.
Furthermore, “Peter you’re going to be at AC Milan tomorrow, how big of a deal would that be if they were eliminated from the Champions League? We are discussing the seven-time champions, or the seven times they have won the Champions League.
The Dane froze for a moment before saying, “Ah, I see what he’s doing. Are we seven points better than you?
We have the 7up, so don’t worry, Carragher said.
Schmeichel then talked about the historic loss but was at a loss for words.
He admitted, “I have to say, it wasn’t wonderful for me. “I’ve been attempting to make sense of everything, but I still have no idea whatsoever how that occurred.
Ten Hag stated, “I hope he’s right. It was embarrassing, unprofessional, and it can never happen again.”
Before being interrupted, Carragher pushed in one more joke.
It’s actually Seven Hag, you just named him Ten Hag, he said.
Two bidders ‘ignore’ demands as Raine Group are ‘surρгιsеd’ by ‘financial leaks’
Sir Jim Ratcliffe and Sheikh Jassim bin Hamad Al Thani, the two bidders for Manchester United, allegedly disregarded requests from acquisition brokers Raine Group.
The two known suitors for Manchester United, who were put up for sale by the Glazer family in November, are Ratcliffe and Sheikh Jassim.
About £6bn is the asking price that the present owners have set. It was anticipated that a takeover would be finalized early in 2023, but it is now known that the Glazer family is delaying this until the summer in order to get the highest price.
According to a recent article from Football Insider, Raine Group officials intended to “keep key parts of the process strictly confined,” but Ratcliffe and Sheikh Jassim allegedly disregarded their requests.
According to the source, the two companies’ initial offers were “between £4.5bn and £5bn” each.
When it came to “particular financial data,” such as “the anticipated structure and value of offers,” Raine Group was keen to keep them under wraps. But this ‘directive has been flouted’ on ‘many instances’.
A deal of this potential significance “would never have realistically anticipated to go through without leaks,” according to the Raine Group, but they have been “surρгιsеd” by the “amount of material” that has surfaced publicly.
Ratcliffe and Shaikh Jassim have been informed that they have “made it through to the next round of the process to buy Manchester United,” according to Sky Sports’ Kaveh Solhekol, who made the revelation earlier this week.
Solhekol said to Sky Sports, “It is really significant (news) since it implies the Glazer family is definitely serious about Man Utd.
According to our knowledge, the proposal from Sir Jim Ratcliffe and the bid from Sheikh Jassim bin Hamad Al Thani of Qatar have advanced to the next round. We have also been advised that there might be one additional unknown bidder.
“What does the following phase entail? Similar to when you want to buy a car, you see the advertisement online, you call and talk to someone about it, you learn the pricing, and now you get to have a test drive, which will be happening in the next weeks.
The potential buyers will travel to Old Trafford to meet Raine Group representatives, maybe run into Glazer family members, and receive access to comprehensive financial data on Manchester United. They must view the books and accounts in order to understand what is going on.
“After they’ve accomplished that, they can submit a firm bid for the club. Hence, if you are one of the many Man Utd supporters who want to see the Glazers go, you will be thinking this morning that the facт that the process is moving forward is excellent news.
