Jamie Carragher has ruined Gary Neville with a brutal Boris Johnson jibe after Salford City announced they have sacked their manager.
The League Two club announced on Tuesday that they have parted company with Gary Bowyer after 14 months in charge at the Peninsula Stadium. As a result, the club which Neville has co-owned since 2014 are now in search of their eighth manager in seven years following the dismissal.
Neville's fellow Sky Sports pundit Carragher wasted no time in poking fun at the former Manchester United defender, taking to Twitter to react to the news of Bowyer's Salford dismissal.
Carragher quote tweeted the club's announcement, writing: “@GNev2 puts more people out of work than Boris Johnson", making reference to the Prime Minister's plans to cut thousands of civil service jobs.
Bowyer leaves Salford having joined the club in March last year and lead the Ammies to a 10th placed finish in League Two this season, finishing seven points off the play-offs.
The club confirmed his departure in an official statement which read: “Salford City Football Club announces the departure of First Team Manager Gary Bowyer from The Peninsula Stadium.
“A meeting was held earlier today and the Club has made the decision to terminate Gary Bowyer’s contract along with Assistant Manager Billy Barr.

“The Club would like to thank Gary and Billy for their hard work over the last season, and we wish them all the best for their future roles within football. An announcement regarding the role of First Team Manager will be made in due course.”
Bowyer's departure means Salford are now on the hunt for their seventh manager since Neville and the rest of the 'Class of '92' took over the club in 2014, although that does include co-managers Anthony Johnson and Bernard Morley.
Since Neville, Nicky Butt, Ryan Giggs, Phil Neville and Paul Scholes' purchase of the club, Salford have achieved four promotions, which all came in their first five years as owners.
They have since been joined by fellow former United star David Beckham, as well as businessman Peter Lim, who owns a 50% share.
