Liverpool legend, Jamie Carragher has insisted that footballing superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo would not feature in a Manchester United and Liverpool combined XI and that Jurgen Klopp would not pick him in his side at the moment.

Ronaldo who made a sensational return to Old Trafford in the summer has so far scored five goals in seven appearances across all competitions but has failed to find the back of the net in his last three Premier League games.

Carragher for his part has insisted that he would pick current Red Devils sensation, Mason Greenwood ahead of Ronaldo at the moment.

"I'm a massive Greenwood fan, I think he's a superstar, I really do. How can you not put Ronaldo in, in terms of what he's done, legendary figure? I'm talking about actually right now, today, I'd have to have Greenwood," he said on Sky Sports' Monday Night Football.

"[Roberto] Firmino got a hat-trick for Liverpool at the weekend and has done really well but going back last season, and this season Greenwood is a superstar and I had to find a place for him in there.

When later asked by presenter David Jones if Ronaldo would get in the Liverpool team, Carragher simply replied: 'No'. 

However, former Red Devil, Gary Neville disagreed with his fellow pundit, though Carragher believes that Klopp would not pick Ronaldo considering that he has a number of his options at his disposal.
