Liverpool's unexpected 7-0 victory over Manchester United on Sunday continues to reverberate throughout the world of football. One person who has been making the most of the historic result is former Liverpool footballer turned pundit, Jamie Carragher.
"We are getting to stage in the Champions League, we are in March, the 7th of March, these games are really cut-throat in March on the 7th," said Carragher during the commentary, cheekily holding up a can of 7up.
However, former Manchester United goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel wasn't amused by Carragher's antics, jokingly saying, "I'm sure that was a great question, but we can't hear you, I can see that you are talking but we can't hear you." Schmeichel also quipped about the potential transfer fee for young star Jude Bellingham, saying "it would have to start with a seven and go from there." Carragher, undeterred, continued to needle his rivals about Bellingham, prompting Schmeichel to retort, "Aren't we seven points ahead of you?" Carragher later tweeted a clip of the exchange with the caption "7️⃣ May 7️⃣0️⃣M for Jude 7️⃣ times CL 🏆Milan," further rubbing salt in the wound.
But Carragher wasn't done there. During a recent Champions League broadcast, he brought a can of 7up to the studio and prominently displayed it throughout the show, a clear nod to Liverpool's historic victory over their arch-rivals.
Liverpool's crushing defeat of Manchester United has set a new record for the derby, cementing their dominance over their long-time rivals. And while the defeat may be hard for Manchester United fans to swallow, it's clear that Jamie Carragher is relishing the chance to remind them of their team's humiliating defeat.
The Importance of Derby Matches in March
The match between Liverpool and Manchester United was a crucial one, with both teams vying for a place in the Champions League.
But as Jamie Carragher pointed out, the importance of derby matches in March cannot be overstated. "These games are really cut-throat in March on the 7th," said Carragher, highlighting the intense pressure and stakes that are at play during these matches.
And while Liverpool emerged victorious, the result serves as a reminder that anything can happen in these high-stakes, high-pressure encounters.
