JAMIE CARRAGHER has trolled Gary Neville for old comments made about Liverpool star Thiago Alcantara in the wake of his brilliant performance against Manchester United.
However, Neville fired back by claiming the ace simply had “one good game against a pub team.”
The Spaniard put on a stunning midfield show on Tuesday night as the Reds smashed rivals United 4-0 at Anfield.
Thiago was here, there and everywhere as he dictated play while bullying United in the heart of the pitch.
The ex-Bayern man got a standing ovation when he was subbed off later in the game.
And Carragher, who already trolled Neville after the result, couldn’t resist poking fun at disparaging comments made by his pundit pal in 2020.
