Jamie Carragher jibes at Manchester City after Borussia Dortmund fans’ message to Newcastle United

Jamie Carragher brutally mocked Manchester City when he saw Borussia Dortmund fans’ message to Newcastle United in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday night.

 

At the start of the second half, Borussia Dortmund fans held up a banner which read ‘You don’t care about the sport – all you care about is money’.

 

The Dortmund supporters also throw fake gold bars and money onto the pitch seemingly in protest at Newcastle United’s Saudi-led takeover, which has helped them reach the heights of the Champions League for the first time in two decades.

 

Previously, the team struggled for many, many years under the stewardship of Mike Ashley, including suffering two relegations.

 

But Jamie Carragher was also keen to aim a dig at Manchester City when he saw that message from Dortmund, by claiming ‘let’s hope Manchester City don’t get Dortmund in the knockout stages’, as he told CBS Sports on Paramount+ (07/11/23 at 10:20 pm).

 

Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City have already booked their ticket to the knockout stages, with two games to spare, whilst Dortmund have a fight on their hands in a group with Newcastle, AC Milan and PSG.

 

Dortmund fans’ message to Newcastle

“Let’s hope Manchester City don’t get Dortmund in the knockout rounds,” said Carragher to the laughter of the studio and Micah Richards just responding with one word ‘really?!’

Not just Newcastle…football is about money only now

The message from Dortmund fans is understandable and many would agree with it. But this isn’t just Newcastle throwing money at the game.

 

Nearly every team in English football or the Premier League does so. Year in, year out. Clubs spent billions.

 

Even Dortmund themselves splash the cash, in comparison to other Premier League teams it might not be enough, but it’s still bigger than a European team in Denmark, Belgium, Scotland or Holland.

 

Are they going to get banners out for Dortmund? Football being the norm was gone a long time ago and has been all about the money, from top to bottom, a long time ago.
