Gary Neville Addresses Jamie Carragher’s Future As Pundit Gets Suspended From Sky Duties

Gary Neville has weighed in on the developing controversy surrounding Jamie Carragher…

On Monday morning, some shocking footage began to circulate online appearing to show Jamie Carragher spitting in the direction of a fan.

The former Liverpool defender turned pundit has since apologised for his behaviour on multiple occasions. However, Sky released a statement on Monday afternoon announcing that they had taken the decision to suspend the 40-year-old from his duties.

“Sky takes this matter extremely seriously and strongly condemns Jamie’s actions, we have made that clear to him in person today and suspended him from his duties. It falls well below the standards we expect of our people.”

Given the nature of their work and how often they appear as a duo, it was only a matter of time before Gary Neville would be asked to comment on his colleague’s conduct. Tweeting about the controversy on Monday evening, the former Manchester United defender stated that, although there can be no excusing Carragher’s actions, he did not feel that the incident should cost his co-commentator his job.

I’ve just watched Carra23 say sorry. No excuses he’s made a big mistake . He’s massively passionate about football and he’s overstepped the mark and shouldn’t have reacted . I’ve been on TV for 3 years with him and imo this isolated incident shouldn’t stop us working together
