Liverpool Icon Jamie Carragher Hits Back At Crystal Palace Boss Alan Pardew

Liverpool Icon Jamie Carragher Hits Back At Crystal Palace Boss Alan Pardew

Pressure is mounting on Alan Pardew as Crystal Palace continue to tumble dangerously down the table.

The Eagles are still without a win in the Premier League in 2016, with their latest defeat coming at the hands of eight-point leaders Leicester City.

Ahead of Saturday’s 1-0 loss at Selhurst Park, boss Pardew took the opportunity to aim a swipe at Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher in his notes in the match programme.

Pardew took exception to Carragher’s comments relating to how Reds striker Christian Benteke won a late penalty winner for Jurgen Klopp’s side against them earlier this month.

The former Newcastle gaffer had addressed the issue in a press conference before Saturday’s match but clearly felt he hadn’t quite said all he needed to say on the matter, insisting the ex-England defender’s loyalties to Liverpool had blurred his opinion.

But the former Anfield stopper took to Twitter to respond to Pardew’s comments, saying: “Wow! Also what’s the time of the game got to do with whether it’s a penalty or not? No answer on the pen at reading!”
