Jamie Carragher Moves Ever Closer to Liverpool Retirement

Former-England defender struggling for first-team games this season under new boss Brendan Rodgers.

Liverpool stalwart Jamie Carragher, 34, could decide to retire from playing now after new boss Brendan Rodgers has made it evident that he will not be likely to feature much in his first-team this season.

Carragher has spent his whole career at Liverpool and has made over 480 appearances for the Merseyside outfit since his debut for the first-team in 1996.

He has long been a fan-favourite along with Stephen Gerrard and played a key role in one of the club’s finest moments – their 5-3 Champions League comeback over AC Milan in Istanbul in 2005, having been 3-0 down at half-time.

Rodgers has moved to reassure Carragher that he can remain a player at the club, but has also suggested he would welcome Carragher’s move to a coaching role, should the player decide that enough is enough, reports Sky Sports.

With just a year to run on his current contract, Rodgers has admitted that Carragher seemed unsure where his future lay following the arrival of the Northern Irishman over the Summer.

While a number of Premier League clubs would no doubt welcome Carragher’s experience in their ranks for the current Premier League campaign, Carragher is as loyal a Liverpool as you will find and it seems unlikely he would be willing to move to another club.

With only one season realistically left for him as a player at Anfield, as the club would be unlikely to extend his current playing deal, a failure to play any regular football this season could see him make the decision to turn his attentions to coaching before the year is up.
