WATCH: “He says this every year”: Carragher Mocks Neville For Naming Paul Pogba As His Player To Watch In 2021: Neville’s gaffe was not going to go unnoticed by Carragher who was quick to run into Neville
Ever since he’s made his presence felt in the Premier League, Paul Pogba has seen a slew of unknowing and clueless bunch of supporters line up to defend him every season. Despite calling out the midfielder for his horrid displays and equally torrid attitude, Manchester United supporters have claimed its only a matter of time till Pogba comes good.
While Pogba has blatantly refused to repose the faith he’s been entrusted with, outlandish claims of him being unlocked continue doing the rounds. And the club’s old player, Gary Neville became the latest to hop onto train as he claimed that Paul Pogba was going to work wonders in 2021.
Asked to give his predictions for the forthcoming year while appearing on Monday Night Football, Gary Neville went onto say that his player to watch for 2021 was Paul Pogba. His statement prompted a burst of laughter from Jamie Carragher who was having none of the same old rhetoric.

Neville tried to indulge in firefighting with the player quick to claim that he had no part to play in the prediction. Neville said after Carragher’s jibe: “I didn’t even fill that in by the way!
“Do you want to know something? I’ve said it for the last three years, because I still want him to be the player that he can be at the club and drive them towards a title,” Neville continued.
“And that sounds laughable at this moment in time.”
“It is!” Carragher replied, before Neville went onto add: “That’s what I’d like to see him do, but I didn’t actually pick him on that screen!
“Do you know something, someone’s messed around with that.”
Carragher meanwhile chose Manchester City’s John Stones as his player to watch. Both he and Neville were on more cordial terms though when it came to the rest of the predictions with both agreeing upon Liverpool as the league winners while finding a meeting point for Sheffield United as the club to be relegated.
