Carragher to fight for Liverpool place

Veteran Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher insists that he will fight for his place at Anfield, The Telegraph reports.

Carragher was available after injury for the Reds game against Chelsea last weekend, but was not picked by boss Kenny Dalglish. The same could be repeated for Sunday’s fixture with Manchester City at Anfield and Carragher is having to adapt to unfamiliar circumstances. The 33 year old admits that he is not the future of the club, but he is still a big part of Liverpool and will fight for his place in the starting lineup.

Carragher has been one of the stalwarts of the Reds dressing room and is not keen to close the door on his career: ‘I am not the future of Liverpool. Daniel Agger, Martin Skrtel and Sebastian Coates are. But I can still be part of the present for a few more years. It’s only one game I’ve not been selected, so it’s not the end yet. Over the last decade, if I had missed a match, I would have gone straight back into the team when available. This time I didn’t and I have to accept it, agree with it and understand it’.
