Vinnie Jones Slams 'Cowardly' Jamie Carragher After Spitting Incident


Vinnie Jones Slams 'Cowardly' Jamie Carragher After Spitting Incident

Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has been suspended by Sky Sports after a video was released, showing the pundit defender spitting towards passengers in another auto who had been taunting him after his former side lost 2-1 to Manchester United.

The 14-year-old daughter of the United supporter was in the passenger seat and claims to have been hit in the face by Carragher's saliva.

The former Liverpool defender will also not be making a scheduled appearance on the Danish TV station TV3 Sport, who dropped Carragher from his role as a summariser for Manchester United's Champions League encounter with Sevilla on Tuesday.

"I'm speaking with people and Sky and working out what is best for me and for Sky".

SH: I'm a mum of three and if one of my children, my five-year-old, came home and spat I'd be absolutely horrified and you're a grown man. If someone had done that during the game, I would have vilified them.

"He has spoken to the family and he has apologised personally, and when you make a mistake in life, and I've made worse ones than that, you have to own them. If someone spat at my daughter sitting in the auto, I would have been after them". "I could just see him lurch towards his window and spit".

SH: Tell me about the family.

'All I can do is apologise as much as I can, obviously I can't go back but hopefully the family can accept that.

On Monday morning, some shocking footage began to circulate online appearing to show Jamie Carragher spitting in the direction of a fan.

Speaking to the BBC on Monday, he said: "It looks terrible and I accept that". "What I would say is there's no doubt what I have done on Saturday after the game is disgusting, I apologise for it. Especially the young 14-year-old daughter".

"They will be aware of the media storm", he said.

Sky's statement did not say how long Carragher's suspension would last.

Former Manchester City footballer Joey Barton called the act "absolute madness".
