Jamie Carragher reacts on Twitter to Liverpool-United draw, jokes about Van Gaal

Louis van Gaal

The Liverpool legend is fascinated by the Reds drawing Manchester United in the Europa League.

Jamie Carragher believes Liverpool's Europa League draw against Manchester United is great for the Reds in two ways.

Indeed, a win is a win - but he has joked that a loss could see Louis van Gaal stay at Old Trafford!

The duo were paired together in the last 16 of the Europa League, setting up the tremendous prospect of a two-legged tie involving Anfield and Manchester United's home ground.

This is how Carragher reacted to the draw...

Meanwhile, former Liverpool striker Robbie Fowler kept things simple on Twitter and reacted with the following:

And ex-Liverpool midfielder Don Hutchison feels all the draws are fantastic, with Tottenham also paired against Borussia Dortmund.

Liverpool will now have the chance for revenge after losing to Manchester United twice already this season. Suddenly, the Europa League has taken on an all-new importance and is looking far more appealing for all its Premier League representatives!
