Jamie Carragher tears into ’embarrassing’ Man Utd star and tells Erik ten Hag to take him off

Jamie Carragher pulled no punches in his assessment of the Manchester United player.

Jamie Carragher laid into a Manchester United star for his ’embarrassing’ first-half showing against Crystal Palace.

Man United trail Palace by two goals following strikes from Michael Olise and Jean-Philippe Mateta in the opening 45 minutes.

Fans online took aim at one player after a woeful performance at Selhurst Park.

At half-time, Carragher pulled no punches in his assessment of Casemiro, who started the game at centre-back following the injury to Harry Maguire.

Carragher called his attempt at closing down Olise ’embarrassing’ and urged Erik ten Hag to take him off the pitch.

“Listen, he’s playing out of position tonight,” he exclaimed. “This has got nothing to do with playing out of position. That could be a holding midfield role. That is embarrassing.

“They need to bring him off. He needs to come off the pitch,” he added. “Honestly. Nothing can be worse than Casemiro playing at centre-back in this second-half for Manchester United. Put Wan-Bissaka in the middle and bring a full-back on.”

Before the resumption of the second-half, Carragher said it’s “sad to see” a legend of the game perform like this.

He said: “It’s sad to see a great player performing like this. We’ve all been there at the end of our career but he’s only 32. What he’s achieved in the game but he’s miles off it.

“He’s miles away from it.”

Ten Hag made no changes at the break despite his side’s shocking display.
