Video: Jurgen Klopp snubs Liverpool legends’ offer to help injury-plagued Reds

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher made a cheeky play for one final Wembley day after watching his former club reach the Capital One Cup final last night.

The ex-Reds defender offered to help out Jurgen Klopp amid his current injury crisis, but the new Liverpool boss insisted that he was not that desperate!

Sky Sports pundit Carragher does not seem to have been deterred, though. He uploaded this video to his Instagram account with the caption: “Better get my boots ready! #wembley”.

Liverpool will play either Manchester City or Everton in next month’s final at Wembley, having beaten Stoke City 6-5 on a penalty shootout, after a 1-1 aggregate draw.

Carragher retired at the end of the 2012-13 season after a decorated Reds career which saw him become the club’s second-leading appearance maker of all time with 737.

The 37-year-old was part of the last Liverpool team to win silverware – the Capital One Cup four years ago – and won nine further trophies in his 17-year Anfield career.

But, despite centre-backs Dejan Lovren and Martin Skrtel being two of a number of injury absentees, it seems that Carragher’s trophy-winning days for Liverpool are over.

Judging by the hapless way that the Merseyside club have defended at times this season, it might have been worth Klopp considering Carragher’s offer more seriously!
