Jamie Carragher trolls Peter Schmeichel with can of 7 Up after Manchester United’s record loss to Liverpool.
After their respective teams’ marquee match, Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher couldn’t resist ridiculing Peter Schmeichel of Manchester United.
The weekend’s Premier League meeting between Liverpool and United featured the largest victory in the history of the rivalry—7-0—and United’s worst loss since 1931.
Carragher was fortunate enough to be at Anfield commentating with Gary Neville, who he used to line up against in the same game, and the game will go down in English football history.
The former Reds center-back was captured by Sky Sports cameras beaming with joy as Cody Gakpo, Darwin Nunez, and Mohamed Salah each scored twice before Roberto Firmino made it seven.
When the two pundits teamed up for CBS’ coverage of the Champions League, Schmeichel had already taken a beating from his colleague Neville during and after the game.
seated holding a can of 7 Carragher started hesitantly dropping the number into any questions aimed at the former United goalkeeper in order to signify the record score.
“Peter, I feel like it’s particularly crucial now that we’re moving into March, the seventh of March, with the Champions League,” he remarked.
How crucial does it seem to be at the Bridge when these games are so competitive, as I mentioned, into March on the seventh?
“Jamie, we can’t hear you. We can see that you’re talking, but we can’t hear you,” Schmeichel retorted.
Jude Bellingham is there, he’s a celebrity, and we think he’ll go on in the summer. What kind of price tag are we talking about? Carragher retorted. Our opinion is that you should start with a seven and work your way up from there.
And one more: “Peter, you’ll be at AC Milan tomorrow. How problematic would it be if they were eliminated from the Champions League? We’re talking about the seven Champions League champions, exactly seven times.
The Dane reacted abruptly, saying, “Ah, I see what he’s doing. Do we have a seven-point lead over you?
Carragher responded, “Don’t worry Peter, we’ve got the 7up.
Schmeichel then talked about the record loss but was unable to fully explain it.
I have to admit, it wasn’t wonderful for me, he added. “I’ve been trying to understand it, but I still have no idea how it occurred.
I hope Ten Hag is right when he says that it was embarrassing, unprofessional, and could never happen again.
Before he was interrupted, Carragher hurriedly tried to crack one last joke.
He said, “You just called him Ten Hag, it’s actually Seven Hag.
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.
