JAMIE CARRAGHER slammed Manchester United after their humiliating defeat to Crystal Palace.

The Red Devils were hammered 4-0 at Selhurst Park in a loss that surely spells the end to Erik ten Hag’s reign.

Palace continuously ripped a woeful United apart as goals by Michael Olise, Jean-Philippe Mateta and Tyrick Mitchell did the damage.

Live on Sky Sports after the final whistle, Carragher didn’t hold back in his criticism of Ten Hag‘s side.

He said: “This is one of the most poorly coached teams in the Premier League, that’s a fact. That is not an opinion. That is a fact.

“The numbers tell you that when you see them bottom of the league defensively, lower than Sheffield United.

“I struggled to see how United would win tonight but I thought Palace would win one or two nil. No Manchester United team should be getting beaten 4-0 by Crystal Palace.

“Manchester United’s Under-23 team, if they are at Manchester United, have come through their academy, have been coached and taught to play, I would still not expect them to lose 4-0.

“I have never been a manager or a coach but I have been a player and I have been coached by top coaches and some of the things that I see are just wrong.”

Carragher then singled out Casemiro for criticism as the midfielder had a nightmare as a makeshift defender due to an injury crisis.


The pundit said the ex-Real Madrid star should “call it a day” on his career and move away from the elite level of the game to the MLS or Saudi Arabia.

Carragher said: “I’m deadly serious. He’s ageing, the people around him they need to tell him this has to stop.

“He’s been an absolute great. But I always remember something when I retired myself, there was a saying I always remember as a footballer, ‘leave the football before the football leaves you’. 

Carragher also blasted Antony, Mason Mount and Andre Onana as the trio were making gestures and covering their mouths as they spoke while trudging off the pitch.

The former Liverpool defender exclaimed: “Just get off the pitch. I mean, talking, whispering behind your hand.

“Been absolutely awful. You’re probably talking about one of the players or somebody else or the set-up or the manager.

“Just get off the pitch. Shut up and get in. You’ve been beat 4-0. Whispering and talking about other players, honestly, embarrassing.”

Pressure is now mounting on Ten Hag as the team languish in eight place on 54 points with three league games to go before the FA Cup final against Manchester City.

United have never finished below seventh and their lowest points total came in the 2021/22 season when they finished on a underwhelming 58 points.

Pundits verdict on Ten Hag’s future

Where do the pundits stand on Erik ten Hag’s Manchester United future

Jamie Carragher – Sacked

“I don’t see how Erik ten Hag stays. It’s just performance after performance.”

Gary Neville – Stay if he wins the FA Cup

“To sack a manager who’s won two trophies in his first two seasons at the club I think would be extreme.”

Louis Saha – On the fence

“I don’t see it as clearly but they need changes from the players but they need changes from him as well.”

Alan Shearer – Sacked

“I believe the future of the Man Utd manager is already determined. Even if they win the FA Cup I think he’s gone.”
