Jamie Carragher has looked to patch things up with Peter Schmeichel on air in hilarious scenes after the Englishman disagreed with the Manchester United icon’s assessment of Neymar’s performance earlier this week.
Former Liverpool defender Carragher is covering the latter stages of the Champions League with US broadcaster CBS Sport alongside Schmeichel, former Man City star Micah Richards and Roberto Martinez.
And on Wednesday, Sportsmail reported that Carragher and Schmeichel clashed over the display of Neymar during Paris Saint-Germain’s dramatic comeback win over Atalanta in Lisbon.

The Danish icon was particularly critical of the Brazilian for wasting two ‘gifted’ chances in the quarter final tie. Carragher disagreed with Schmeichel’s assessment, and lightheartedly told him to ‘stick to goalkeeping’.
And the Sky Sports pundit looked to make amends for his jovial comment, with fellow pundit Alex Scott acting as mediator for the pair in amusing scenes.
Referencing the article published by this website, Scott said: ‘We did actually see the article over here didn’t we.’
Schmeichel replied: ‘We did, yeah. It’s one of those things where you go through your morning routine, trying to find out what’s happening around the world… and then I find out that I am in a feud with you, Jamie? That’s not right, I like you!’
‘No, no, no, no!’ Carragher intervened. ‘Listen, if you’re that offended by it, do you want me to apologise and make it up to you? Come on, give me a high-five.’
The Liverpool legend strolls to a giant in-studio screen displaying Schmeichel and Scott and hugs it, while the Dane puts a hand out to high-five his fellow pundit.
‘I’ve seen it all now!’ exclaims Richards, who is given a front row seat to witness the comical moment. ‘That’s only because he’s won more trophies than you – you wouldn’t be saying that to me!’
Carragher typically contends with Gary Neville on Sky Sports, with the pair forming a formidable double-act on Monday Night Football.
The British broadcaster have permitted the popular pundit to work for the stateside broadcaster, who have signed Clive Tyldesley to provide commentary over the elite European competition.
