Carragher fires back at Evra over criticism of Cristiano Ronaldo after Man Utd’s defeat


Liverpool legend, Jamie Carragher has hit back at Patrice Evra after the Frenchman took a swipe at him for his criticism of Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo.

Ronaldo was handed the captain’s armband by the Red devils interim manager, Ralf Rangnick, on Monday against Wolves.

But the Portugal international failed to fire up his team-mates as they delivered another below-par display to lose 1-0 at Old Trafford to Wolves.

The result has produced fresh questions over Ronaldo’s impact, a question that Carragher addressed back in November during a debate with Roy Keane.

“You finish second and sign Ronaldo at 36 – you are not going to win the league in four years. If you sign someone at 36 it’s to win right now,” Carragher stated, before asking: “Are they any closer to winning the league?”

Those comments got Evra annoyed, who felt the need to come to the defence of Ronaldo, his former United team-mate.

While working for Amazon Prime, Evra said: “There’s a lot of talk about this player [Cristiano Ronaldo] and I really don’t understand it.

“Some players like Jamie Carragher, he had 775 games, today Cristiano scored 801 goals. And those kinds of people talk about Cristiano. “Sometimes I just think people have to stay in their lane and I don’t understand that hate.”

However, after United’s defeat to Wolves, Carragher could not help but hit back at Evra.

The former England player took to his Twitter account and wrote that he was “getting back out of the lane” in a direct swipe towards Evra.
