Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has revealed he wants to finish his career at Anfield.
This comes after some reports suggested he was looking at the possibility of moving elsewhere.
The former England man only has a year to run on his contract and negotiations are yet to begin over a new deal. This raised questions about the defender’s future, and earlier this month Carragher said he would have “no problem” leaving his beloved club.
However, speaking about his future once again, he has revealed he wants to stay at Liverpool for the rest his career, putting to bed the rumours that he could play for another club before he calls it a day.
A lot will depend on whether Rafa Benitez decides to offer Carragher a new deal, but presuming that he will, the player himself seems happy enough to remain at the club where he made his debut in 1997.
Since then, Carragher has become an iconic figure in the Liverpool defence and will go down as one of the club’s most loyal and committed players of all time.
In terms of success he has had for Liverpool, he has been involved with trophy wins in the Champions League, the UEFA Cup, the League Cup and the FA Cups. There is no doubt that he would love to add to this list before he retires.
According to Carragher, this is something he can do this season and Liverpool’s Europa League odds make them favourites to lift that trophy. He says the team are “desperate” to get their hands on some silverware as soon as possible.
This quest continues this evening when Liverpool travel to Benfica in the first-leg of the Europa League quarter-final tie where Carragher will be hoping to help his team achieve a good result to take back to Liverpool.
The Reds then take on Birmingham at the weekend as they continue their quest to finish fourth in the Premier League this season. Liverpool striker Fernando Torres seems to have hit form at just the right time.
He will be hoping to fire the goals which secure Champions League football for his club before helping Spain to justify their favouritism in the World Cup odds' in South Africa.
