Jamie Carragher has told Mauricio Pochettino to ‘get out of’ Paris Saint-Germain as quickly as possible and to bite Manchester United’s hand off if they come calling for him.

Pochettino’s PSG side were beaten 2-1 by Manchester City in the Champions League on Wednesday night, with Kylian Mbappe opening the scoring before goals from Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus gave City the win.

The French side fielded their superstar front three of Lionel Messi, Neymar and Mbappe, but Carragher was left thoroughly unimpressed by the trio.

The Liverpool legend even said it was these three huge names that should leave Pochettino looking for the exit door at PSG and hoping that the Red Devils make a move for him.

‘Pochettino has to get out of the club,’ Carragher told Paramount Plus. ‘If he has the chance to go to Manchester United I would be gone tomorrow, I honestly would and it’s because of those three stars.’

Carragher was left fuming by the attitude and work rate of Messi, Neymar and Mbappe, believing that a team simply cannot operate at the elite level while they carry passengers when they don’t have the ball.

‘They [PSG] are carrying three, they’ve got absolutely no chance of winning the Champions League, Paris Saint-Germain, absolutely no chance,’ he said.

‘I get frustrated watching it because with Mbappe more than anybody. I can almost understand Messi to a certain extent, he’s 34, he has to save himself for certain moments, I still don’t think they can carry him, let’s not forget Barcelona haven’t won a Champions League for a long time.

‘But Mbappe is 22, he should be sprinting back and getting back helping his teammates against a top Man City team. This thing about walking around the pitch, it’s not for me.

‘I just can’t accept, I don’t care how good they are, that they don’t work for the team. The days of carrying passengers are long gone.’
