Carragher's 737th appearance for Liverpool against Queens Park Rangers ended an illustrious 16-year spell at Anfield and the former England international has revealed he is puzzled as to why he was never linked with a possible move away.

"I never really had the option to leave - I don't know whether it was a good thing or bad thing," Carragher is quoted as saying in The Sun. "Maybe no-one rates me!

"I've never even been close. My agent has never rang me up and said, 'This team fancy buying you'. Not once.

"Maybe I was always seen as 'Mr Liverpool', I suppose. You'll have to ask different managers. But I'd never have left in any circumstances.

"Maybe those managers realised that. Or, like I said, they just didn't fancy me.

"And I can't say I ever thought about leaving when I wasn't in the side. You have good times and bad times at your club.

"It's like being a supporter. You don't stop supporting your team because of a bad run.

"And we've had some great times here, won some big trophies. So I feel lucky and privileged."

et again Barcelona try to convince the world that they only play the most virtuous of football. I've never seen a team so willing and able to dish out lumps but feel so self-righteous that no opposition player should ever have the audacity to tackle them.
