Carragher relieved over Carling Cup victory


Bookmark and Share

Tuesday 28 February 2012

Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher admits winning the Carling Cup lifted a huge weight off his shoulder and captain Steven Gerrard, The Mirror reports.



Carragher has been at the club with Gerrard since schoolboy level and with them both now in their 30s, the pair were keen to win a trophy with the club for the first time since 2006. The Reds were triumphant in the Carling Cup final penalty shoot-out despite Gerrard missing his penalty and Carragher was relieved that the years without silverware are over.


The 34 year old said: ‘It has been too long. We’re coming to the latter stages of our career, myself and Stevie, and because we have gone so long without winning anything, you don’t want to finish your career going seven or eight years without. It was a relief for both of us to get a trophy, for ourselves and the club. It maybe takes the pressure off now for the next year or two and we can relax and go on to try and win more trophies, hopefully bigger trophies’.


The last trophy the Reds won before Sunday’s triumph was the 2006 FA Cup final, which was held at the Milennium Stadium. Carragher was delighted that the Reds could win a trophy at Wembley after the club’s last visit to London in 1996 ended in disaster when Manchester United won 1-0 in the FA Cup Final. The Reds have the chance of returning to Wembley for the FA Cup semi-final if they can beat Stoke at Anfield in the quarter-final of this season’s competition.
