Talisman sad to miss out on mate’s retirement.
Liverpool midfielder Steven Gerrard has spoken of his disappointment at missing out on Jamie Carragher’s final two games for the club before hanging up his boots, The Metro reports.
The 32-year-old talisman was ruled out for the rest of the season with a shoulder injury meaning that he will miss the club’s final push for European competition before his long time team-mate Jamie Carragher retires to take up a punditry role with Sky Sports.
However, as Brendan Roger’s men head into their final two encounters with Fulham and QPR, the England international that even worse than not being able to play, or help his club finish above cross city rivals Everton, is that he can’t be there to help his friend celebrate the end of his career and give him a proper send off.
“That’s my main disappointment – that I can’t share the last game with him. But it’s always going to be nice to say the last game I played with Jamie was the derby,” he said.
“Hopefully he doesn’t put too much weight on over the summer and can join me for my testimonial!”
The pair made their respective debuts in 1997 have have gone on to make a combined total of 1,300 appearances for the club.
