SOCCER fans accused Jamie Carragher of “filling up Gary Neville” with his comments during Chelsea’s remarkable 4-4 draw with Manchester City.
Manchester United legend Neville, 48, has gained a reputation for screaming and squirming live on air, with social media often making fun of the sounds.
He is known to have let out a long groan when Fernando Torres scored for Chelsea against Barcelona 11 years ago.
However, he was not present for Sunday’s clash at Stamford Bridge as Liverpool icon Carragher joined Peter Drury on commentary.
And viewers caught the 45-year-old former Reds defender squealing in a similar manner.
Carragher caused a stir at various points in the game as Chelsea twice fell behind – with Cole Palmer scoring a stoppage-time penalty against his former club.
One of the sounds came during game time when referee Anthony Taylor blew his whistle as Chelsea were about to launch a counter-attack.
And numerous fans reacted quickly on social media.
One said: “Carragher is worse than Neville because he makes moaning noises every time something happens. Sky needs to speak out.”
Another added: “At the end of the game Carragher did the Gary Neville thing where he stopped commenting and just made noise.”
A third replied: “Omg I’m sorry but what the f*** is that from Jamie Carragher?” 🤣. It was good play, but not orgasmic good, my God.”
While a fourth replied: “I love Carragher and Neville in MNF, they are brilliant but everything is way too emotional in the comments. Too much screaming.”
And a fifth said: “Did Jamie Carragher take commentary lessons from Gary Neville? 😂”
Another simply described Carragher’s comment as “full of it, Neville.”
