Photo: Manchester United youngster's dressing room snap will have Carragher and Scholes speechless

Manchester United stars posed after the club's under-21 win over Liverpool.

What would Jamie Carragher and Paul Scholes make of this?

Manchester United youngster Andreas Pereira uploaded a dressing room photo to Twitter after the club's under-21 win over Liverpool.

The win featured former Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes, who helped earn a 2-1 victory on his first ever game in a Red Devils shirt.

Pereira also pictured forgotten midfielder Anderson, along with youngsters Jesse Lingard, Saidy Janko and Vanja Milinkovic.

United won thanks to goals from Nick Powell and Paddy McNair, with Scott Sinclair scoring for Liverpool.

For the youngsters, playing alongside Valdes may well be a moment they want to savour, with the three-times Champions League winner's place in modern football history part of the folklore of what will be considered a legendary Barcelona side.

Ex-Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher had last week told SkySports however that he wanted the trend of post-game selfie photos to end, saying: "Normally you have those pictures with a cup. It’s not just Arsenal, plenty of teams do it. It’s absolute nonsense. Stop doing it."

United legend Paul Scholes agreed, telling The Mail: "In my final couple of years at United we had one player, new to the team and young, who posted a picture from the dressing room on Instagram or Twitter. I won't embarrass him by naming him because that too would contradict the rules about what stays private. Safe to say, the manager went ballistic and the player never did it again."

Perhaps for Pereira's sake, it's best Sir Alex Ferguson is no longer around.
