‘He was going to Liverpool’: Gary Neville says £55m ace joined a ‘graveyard’ amid Jamie Carragher argument

Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher were involved in yet another heated argument on Sky Sports over the weekend following Manchester United’s defeat to Manchester City.

The name of Mason Mount was brought up by Gary Neville and how he was ‘going to Liverpool’ in the summer, but instead, he opted to join a ‘graveyard’ at Manchester United.

In one corner, you had the former right-back throwing punches at the Glazers and how they are at fault for Manchester United’s issues.

But Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher was having none of it, as he feels that Erik ten Hag needs to take more responsibility, as he told Sky Sports.

After ten Premier League games, the Dutchman, after winning the League Cup last season and securing a top-four finish, seems to be going backwards.

Gary Neville previously spoke about how it’s ‘rinse and repeat’ with managers at Old Trafford and how they all face the same issues.

And he was sure to lay the blame on the Glazers by stating that ‘you can’t keep blaming the kids in the class’.

Gary Neville on Manchester United
“Harry Maguire was going to go to Manchester City,” said Neville. “Mason Mount was going to go to Liverpool.

“They have come here and it’s a graveyard for them. Are we going to keep blaming the kids in the class? Are we going to keep blaming the headteacher?”

There was a lot of drama and noise around Mount’s call to leave his boyhood club in the summer, with many Chelsea fans unhappy with the playmaker.

There were claims that Liverpool wanted him on board, but it seems as though the recently snubbed England international had other ideas on his mind.

Instead, he secured a £55 million transfer to Old Trafford (Sky Sports), and as of this moment, he is struggling to start in this abject Manchester United side.

From his six Premier League games, he is yet to score or assist for his new club, with his only goal contribution coming during a League Cup win over Crystal Palace.
