Jamie Carragher names Man Utd star he would like to see at Liverpool

Jamie Carragher, the Liverpool icon, has disclosed his top pick from Manchester United’s roster that he’d love to see in a Liverpool jersey. In a hypothetical scenario, Carragher’s choice would be a rising star.

Kobbie Mainoo, at the tender age of 18, has emerged as a remarkable talent for United, participating in 21 games across various tournaments.

His recent debut for England’s senior team in the game against Belgium has only added to his growing reputation.

Despite his youth, Mainoo has quickly become a valued member of Erik ten Hag’s squad at United. His notable performances have not only won over United fans but have also drawn admiration from rival supporters, including Carragher.

Faced with the hypothetical choice of selecting a player from Ten Hag’s lineup for the upcoming clash between United and Liverpool, Carragher’s preference for Mainoo stands out, even over established players like Marcus Rashford. This underscores the limited number of standout options available.

“I think I’d probably take the young kid Mainoo. His age, number one, I think he looks like a superstar and he could go on to be a real superstar,” Carragher said during The Overlap Fan Debate.

He added: “I’m trying to think who else in the United team is better playing in their position. Maybe Rashford because Liverpool in the summer, obviously under a new manager, but would that be a position you look at?

“Wide left because I think Luis Díaz is good, I don’t think he’s great. So that could be a position. But I think with Mainoo in central midfield. Yeah, I would go with him just for the age factor.”

Erik ten Hag couldn’t hide his admiration for the youngster, Mainoo, after his superb performance against Belgium. He felt proud as he spoke to the media pre-Brentford match.

“I thought it was very good, but we are not surprised,” Ten Hag said. “We have seen what he is capable of, that he can very quickly adapt to high levels. It looks very natural. We are very happy for him and of course a little bit proud.

“I would say very proud. It’s great for the academy of Manchester United that they bring up a player so young going into the national team. That is a big compliment for the whole club. I think definitely in the first place for himself because he did it.”
