Jamie Carragher hilariously calls out Kasper Schmeichel on Sky Sports MNF and warns: ‘You can’t say that as a pundit’ | The Sun

JAMIE CARRAGHER hilariously called out Kasper Schmeichel during his maiden appearance on Monday Night Football.

Schmeichel, who left Leicester last summer after 11 years at the King Power, was on Sky Sports as a pundit to run the rule over his old side as they took on Everton.

Ahead of the 2-2 draw, Carragher asked Schmeichel who the leaders in their dressing room would be amid the Foxes' struggles.

After reeling off names including James Maddison, Jonny Evans and Youri Tielemans, the 36-year-old referred to Leicester as "we".

Presenter Dave Jones pointed out what Schmeichel had said.

And Carragher laughed as he wagged his finger at the Dane and said: "You can't say that as a pundit, you can't say we."

Schmeichel smiled as he sheepishly responded: "I'm not a pundit yet."

The goalkeeper quit Leicester for Nice, owned by Manchester United hopefuls INEOS, last year.

On what Sir Jim Ratcliffe and Co are like as owners, Schmeichel explained: "One of the biggest reasons that I joined Nice was because of INEOS and because of Sir Jim Ratcliffe and Sir Dave Brailsford, their vision and how they want to evolve their sports.

"Because they've been successful, not just in business, but in every other sporting venture they've thrown their investment at. I think with Manchester United particularly, Jim [Ratcliffe] is a big fan of the club and that speaks a lot to fans.

"He's someone coming in who cares deeply about the club. From my own experience at Nice, he's a man who is present, he comes to games, a guy that's knowledgeable about football and who has a vast knowledge about performance in general.

"He has people like Dave Brailsford working for him, who again, are present and I think that's the main thing with any club I've played at, look at Leicester, for example, the owners are present and there is not a divide.

"So I think – and I'm biased hoping INEOS are the preferred bidders – let's wait and see."

Schmeichel also offered his take on where things went wrong for Brendan Rodgers at Leicester this term.

He said: "Brendan is one of the best managers I've ever seen up close. I only have good things to say about him.

"When you hear the same message over and over again sometimes the message might not have the same impact even if it's the right message. That happens sometimes in managerial cycles.

"Only time will tell. Particularly the first two years of Brendan being there it's the best football as a club Leicester's ever played."
