Video: Football fans are loving Neville and Carragher’s hilarious race across the pitch on Sky Sports

Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher engaged in an impromptu sprinting battle on Sky Sports this Friday, live at Brighton’s Amex Stadium.

The two men have become cult figures in their roles as pundits over the last few years, well-known for playing jokes on each other and generally being on the wind up in between providing expert level analysis of Premier League action on a weekly basis.

Ahead of tonight’s clash between Brighton and West Ham, Carragher challenged Neville to a race across the pitch after being asked by a fan who was the quickest man back in the heyday as players.

Check out the hilarious video below via YouTube, with some reaction from fans who loved to see the two former rivals going head to head once again.
