Jamie Carragher admits that despite his flattery towards Liverpool’s offer of keeping him after his playing career, he is focused on getting back in the Reds side, Liverpool
The Reds vice-captain made his first Premier League start since October in the 0-0 draw at Anfield against Stoke City on Saturday. Carragher lost his spot with injury and has been consigned to bench duty as Liverpool centre backs Martin Skrtel and Daniel Agger have been in good form. Agger’s minor knock allowed Carragher back in the side and the 34 year old plans to hold down his place in the Liverpool squad, as they push for the Champions League places.
Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard penned a new contract extension that will see him stay at the club for life and possibly take on an ambassadorial role following retirement. Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish spoke about the club’s desire to keep Carragher in the same vein as Gerrard, but the 34 year old is not looking any further ahead than the trip to Bolton next Saturday.
‘If the manager has mentioned that role, I’m sure we will discuss it in the future. Of course I’d like to stay on, but that’s not something I want to talk about at the minute. I still want to concentrate on playing. I want to get as much out of my playing career as I possibly can’, Carragher said.
