Ex-Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has pointed out that Manchester United ‘s defensive play was “fun and messy” in the demolition of his former club.

         “The Reds” won at Old Trafford with the most goals of all time 5-0, which Carragher’s view pointed to the defensive meekness of the “Red Devils”. “Until the door was knocked on.

         “I’m not trying to be smart here, I don’t think Liverpool are doing their best in terms of possession. But whenever they move closer to United’s back four. That’s a joke for the four defenders right now. It’s really chaotic,” Carragher told Sky Sports News.

         “There is no better way. If there is a slight mistake. There’s half an hour to meet United with 10 men – you’ll never get that chance again.

         “Manchester United and Liverpool are the biggest rivals. Perhaps the biggest in football world – two big clubs, great competition and great respect for their achievements. But you won’t have that opportunity very often.”

“I’m not going to sit here and criticise Man Utd fans because I’m Liverpool. Two weeks ago fans came together. There will always be idiots who get involved. I think it’s a good thing, protesting not being happy at what’s happened at the club.

“There will always be someone who takes it too far not just in a protest. That’s a night out with mates. There’s always someone who does something stupid.

“We’ve lost a game of football but I almost accept that. I’m sure that [trouble] will dominate the news. It happens to fans all the time.

“I don’t want to see other supporters scoring points against Manchester United fans. The majority of Man Utd supporters were peaceful.”

Roy Keane also suggested that United fans “have had enough” of the Glazer’s:

“I’m disappointed the game is off. We all are.

“United fans have had enough. They’re doing this because they love the club. It’s not just the last few weeks and the Super League, it’s been building for years. They’ve thought enough is enough. It’s a huge statement for the game to be called off.

“This has been the build-up of the last few years. The leadership of the club hasn’t been good enough. When they look at the owners they think it’s all about making money. I believe the United fans are doing this because they love the cub.

“People might not agree but sometimes you have to put a marker down for people to notice. This will go all over the world. Hopefully, the owners see the fans are deadly serious.

“There’s more to come, this is just the start from Man Utd fans, I guarantee you.”
