While it’s usually at Roy Keane’s expense, Micah Richards loves nothing more than to stir the pot with his colleagues at Sky Sports.
Today he made Gary Neville the butt of a joke and Jamie Carragher got involved to make fun of the former United captain’s stance on manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
It wouldn’t be the first time but we wholeheartedly respect Neville’s stance.
Not once do I recall a pundit calling for a manager’s head — let alone Neville, so it’s bizarre that people across social media are so obsessed with him having to call out his former team-mate.
He has respect for Ole — just like us — and it’s our job as fans to get behind the team win, lose or draw.
The joke started when the former Man City defender responded to Aston Villa’s appointment of Steven Gerrard. Richards was clearly eager to know if Carragher would protect Gerrard, a former team-mate, just like Neville has done with Solskjaer.
Carragher kept the joke running, quoting himself in the future as saying: “They should keep him as they’ve tried Dean Smith & Steve Bruce before so they’re not going down that road again!”

Neville’s job is to assess the Premier League and that will always see United at the focus.
The biggest joke here, however, is when Neville turns the heat on these pundits, they don’t call for Solskjaer’s head. I don’t know how nobody has seen that.
