BREAKING NEWS: Jamie Carragher suspended by Sky Sports - FCNaija

Sports Broadcasting giant Sky Sports have confirmed the duration of football pundit Jamie Carragher's suspension after spitting in the direction of a 14-year-old girl following a verbal exchange with the teenager’s father over Liverpool’s 2-1 defeat by Manchester United.

Carragher has been suspended by the broadcaster until the end of the season and according to a Sky Sports spokesman: "Following an internal review, Sky has suspended Jamie Carragher for the remainder of the football season.

"Jamie has taken full responsibility for what has happened and we will ensure he gets the help he needs to guarantee something like this never happens again.

"Before the start of the next season we will sit down with Jamie to discuss whether he is ready to return to his role." said the Sky Sports spokesman in The Guardian

Carragher, who has since apologised to the family of the girl and who accepted his behaviour was “unacceptable”, described the incident as a “moment of madness” and said his “biggest regret was that a young girl was caught up in the middle of the altercation”.
