Carragher: There is no way I'm having a Manchester United shirt touch my skin!

The Liverpool legend says he will have to wear something underneath the top when he fulfils his bet with Gary Neville.

Liverpool icon Jamie Carragher says he will have to wear something underneath his Manchester United shirt if he fulfils his bet with Gary Neville on Monday Night Football, according to the Daily Mail.

Indeed, Carragher lost a bet with Neville over whether Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Paulinho will be a Premier League success.

There are no prizes for guessing which side of the argument Carragher was on and he now has to wear a Manchester United shirt while broadcasting.

The former Liverpool defender has made the emphatic statement that he can't even let it touch his skin, however, meaning he'll have to make extra preparations...

He told the Mail: "If I wear it, I’d have to wear something underneath it; there is no way I am having that touching my skin

"I have to remind myself that it’s for charity. For Alder Hey children’s hospital. It will be auctioned off afterwards."

'Carra' also joked that he won't be making any more bets with the former Manchester United defender of a similar nature - and he will still be regretting this one.

As for the Reds themselves, their Premier League campaign kicks off against Stoke City this weekend, the very same team they last played in the top flight, duly losing 6-1...

It is United who will start the season as a whole, though, playing Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford on Saturday lunchtime.
