Gary Neville hits back at Jamie Carragher after the Reds legend mocked his views on the Man United takeover – and tells his punditry partner to use his ideas when he’s ‘trying to kick Liverpool’s owners out’ in a few years’ timeGary Neville fires back at Jamie Carragher following social media exchangeCarragher had poked fun at his fellow Sky pundit’s ideas on Man United ownersListen to the latest episode of Mail Sport’s podcast ‘It’s All Kicking Off!’By Dan Evans For Mailonline Published: 01:00 BST, 16 October 2023 | Updated: 01:00 BST, 16 October 2023 Gary Neville has hit back at fellow Sky pundit Jamie Carragher after the former Liverpool defender poked fun at his ideas to improve Manchester United’s ownership structure. It was announced over the weekend that Sheikh Jassim of Qatar had pulled out of the race to buy United, with Sir Jim Ratcliffe set to purchase a 25 per cent stake in the club.Neville, who made 602 appearances for the Old Trafford club, responded to the news on Sunday morning by outlining six ‘non-negotiables on a takeover of Manchester United’ on X, before listing 16 questions he felt United fans would want answering in light of the upcoming minortiy investment.  Carrager is no stranger to having a laugh at Neville’s expense either on-screen or on social media, and he was quick to make light of the post. The ex-Liverpool man was particularly amused by Neville’s ‘non-negotiables’ before adding that there were ‘a few other crackers as well’ in the post. Gary Neville hit back at his Sky colleague Jamie Carragher during an exhange on X about the ownership of Manchester United The former United captain posted that Carragher can borrow some of his ideas to bring about change at the club if Liverpool face similar problems down the line Neville did not take the ribbing lightly though, offering a reply within minutes. He posted, ‘You can use it (the post) when you’re trying to kick your owners out in a few years’ and followed with a thumbs up emoji. The ex-United captain has been a long-term critic of the Glazer family’s ownership during their time at the club, suggesting in September that they are a responsible for ‘mediocrity on and off the pitch’.He is therefore unlikely to be satisfied that the deal with Ratcliffe will see them retain a controlling stake in the club. Neville has been a vocal critic of the Glazer ownership over the past few years, suggesting they are responsible for ‘mediocrity on and off the pitch’ at Old Trafford There has been long-term distress over the Glazers’ ownership in Manchester, which has not been helped by a lack of clarity over a potential sale Sir Jim Ratcliffe is to complete a deal for 25 per cent of Manchester United after Sheikh Jassim pulled out of the race to buy the clubRatcliffe, a lifelong United fan, will pay around £1.4bn for a quarter share at Old Trafford, in the first step in what is being viewed as a staged buyout.In his original post, Neville asked: ‘How does a minority stakeholder positively impact the club to achieve the [issues listed] above? Can a minority shareholder have any impact on the above. It leaves more questions than answers.’My preference is and always will be now for a Glazer family full exit. They have overstayed their welcome in Manchester yet seem oblivious to this fact.’United supporters have regularly protested against the Glazer ownership at matches over the past few seasons, and it remains to be seen how they will respond to recent developments at Saturday’s game against Sheffield United.  IT’S ALL KICKING OFF!  It’s All Kicking Off is an exciting new podcast from Mail Sport that promises a different take on Premier League football.It is available on MailOnline, Mail+, YouTube, Apple Music and Spotify.
