'Neville would never do that!' - Danny Simpson and Jamie Carragher trade blows on Twitter
Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher has been involved in a Twitter war of words with Leicester defender Danny Simpson after criticising the team’s efforts in beating Liverpool on Monday night.
The spat began with Simpson referencing a Sky feature which involved Carragher interviewing Everton striker Romelu Lukaku, in which the former Liverpool defender wore the club’s training kit, before claiming Sky colleague and ex-Manchester United defender would never wear a City kit.
Carragher then responded by questioning the Leicester players’ commitment to former manager Claudio Ranieri, having won the first game since his sacking last week.
More offensive than you lot running around on Monday?!!! https://t.co/Paefz3fqOd— Jamie Carragher (@Carra23) 1 March 2017
Simpson then dealt a low blow to Carragher, pointing out that although he respects him, only one of the two of them has won the Premier League.
@Carra23 I respect your opinion, and as a defender I look up to you and what you've achieved. However i won the league you haven't ?? ? ?— Danny Simpson (@dannysimpson) 1 March 2017
To make matters worse for Carragher, Neville then chipped in to stir the situation up even more.
You put it out there Daniel!! Good win Monday ... he was very hurt in the studio... https://t.co/5kMVAkZvgo— Gary Neville (@GNev2) 1 March 2017
Oh and be ready for a whack back.... get your helmet on... he's a reckless individual on here... https://t.co/5kMVAkZvgo— Gary Neville (@GNev2) 1 March 2017
But it was always going to be down to Carragher to have the final word…
