Carragher confirms retirement plans

February 07, 2013 13:53:29 UK
Jamie Carragher has confirmed he intends to call time on his career at the end of the campaign.

Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has revealed he will retire at the end of the season.

Carragher, who won 38 caps for England before calling time on his international career, has won the Champions League, UEFA Cup, two FA Cup titles and three League Cup crowns during his time at Anfield.

The 35-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season and has decided to confirm his retirement now so he can concentrate on the remainder of the season.

"I'm making this announcement because I don't want the manager to be answering questions when I've already decided what I am going to do," he said.

"I will be fully committed between now and the end of the season to doing the very best for Liverpool Football Club, as I have done my entire career since joining aged just nine.

"It has been a privilege and an honour to represent this great club for as long as I have. There are many memories I want to share and people to thank, but now is not the time for that.

"I won't be making any further comment on this decision until the end of the season; all our focus and concentration should be on achieving the best possible finish in the league this season and trying to win the last remaining trophy [Europa League] we are competing in."

The defender made his Reds debut against Middlesbrough in January 1997 and has since made over 700 appearances for the Merseyside outfit, he is second only to Ian Callaghan in the club's all-time appearance table.

Liverpool can be backed at 1213.00 to land the Europa League title this season and 301.00 to secure a top four finish in the Premier League.

Don't forget, all Premier League matches are covered by the bet365 100% Euro Soccer Bonus, where you could earn a bonus of up to 100% on your returns on pre-match accumulator bets.
