Photo: A mix-up to terrify Liverpool and Manchester United fans

Former Manchester United and Liverpool defenders mixed up by SkySports error.


Amid the chaos of transfer deadline day, SkySports made a monumental slip up concerning two of their high profile pundits.

Manchester United and Liverpool fans will surely have been baffled to see Jamie Carragher incorrectly labelled as his old rival, Gary Neville.

Neville was in the studio at the time sitting next to him as they assessed the deals which were close to being completed, or in some cases not being done at all, with the transfer deadline a shadow of previous windows with a lot more late, and big deals being pushed through.

Carragher and Neville clashed on numerous occasions on the pitch prior to both retiring, but both provide a fascinating dynamic on Monday Night Football with their defensive expertise used to analyse the good and the bad of the Premier League weekend.

We are betting neither however would be particularly impressed with this imposed name swap by their employers.

May be Carragher wouldn't mind having Neville's Premier League honours attached to his career though...
