- Jamie Carragher suffered an embarrassing moment after Cristiano Ronaldo ignored him during the build-up to Manchester United vs Liverpool game at Old Trafford
- Ronaldo made a point of greeting Carragher’s colleagues on the panel but ignored the former Liverpool man who joked that he was blanked by the prolific striker
- The Portuguese star came off the bench against Liverpool, with United putting in a dominant performance to record their first win of the season
Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher was given the cold shoulder by Cristiano Ronaldo ahead of Liverpool’s game against Manchester United.
Ronaldo, who was named on the bench by Erik ten Hag, walked across to the pitchside where Carragher and other former football players were doing analysis. Carragher now works for Sky Sports as a pundit.
He was in the company of former Manchester United players Roy Keane and Gary Neville. Ronaldo walked straight to Neville, then skipped Carragher, who was in the middle and went straight to Keane despite Carragher’s attempts to greet him.
Givemesport reports that Ronaldo might have had a lot of reasons to snub Carragher. The retired defender once said that Lionel Messi, Ronaldo’s nemesis, was the greatest player of all time.
Carragher has also blasted Manchester United for resigning the former Real Madrid and Juventus striker. Plus, Carragher is a die-hard Liverpool supporter, an old rival of Ronaldo’s team.
Either way, Ronaldo made his feelings known in what was an embarrassing moment for Carragher, who appeared to take it lightly.
Bruno Fernandes thinks that Ronaldo still wants to leave Manchester United
At the same time, Sports Brief reported that Bruno Fernandes has suggested that Cristiano Ronaldo is still keen on leaving Manchester United this summer.
Ronaldo has widely been linked with an exit despite still having a year left on his current deal with the Red Devils.
It is believed that the 37-year-old has already made it clear to United about his desire to quit the Theatre of Dreams. Ronaldo’s agent, Jorge Mendes, has been hunting for a new home for the five-time Ballon d’Or winner, but there have been no interested suitors.
