Jamie Carragher Will Have To Wear Manchester United Shirt After Losing Bet Over Paulinho

Jamie Carragher Will Have To Wear Manchester United Shirt After Losing Bet Over Paulinho

Jamie Carragher could be forced to make an embarassing forfeit after losing a bet with Sky Sports pundit parnter Gary Neville.

Former Liverpool defender Carragher made the wager with ex-Man United full-back Neville that Spurs Paulinho midfielder would be a 15-goal-a-season player.

But with that now proving untrue, and with Paulinho set to move to the Chinese Super League to join Guanzhou Evergrande, Carragher could now be forced to wear a a United shirt, as revealed by Neville.

The bet was lost in such emphatic style by the fact that Paulinho only mustered six Premier League goals in 45 appearances for the White Hart Lane side.

An agreement is now in place for the Brazilian midfielder to sign for the Chinese giants, which will see him reunited with Luiz Felipe Scolari, who he played under for the Brazil national team.

And Anfield legend Carra will be a little more careful with who makes his outrageous bets on next time round.
