Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher hilariously argue about Aleksandar Mitrovic’s red card


You can’t say that there was any element of surprise that Aleksandar Mitrovic was red-carded just three weeks into his Newcastle career.

The young Serb came with a certain reputation that pretty much broke him down to being part Mario Balotelli and part Eric Cantona.

Mitrovic was given his marching orders just 16 minutes into the Magpies home game against Arsenal for a challenge on Francis Coquelin.

Jamie Carragher has been known to argue with Neville in the studio, and it clearly wasn’t going to stop there.

But Neville, quick as a flash, responded by bringing up an instance back in 2011 that saw Carragher sent off for a similar challenge on Nani.

Carragher came back with some refreshing honesty.
