Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish is surprised by Jamie Carragher's decision

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish is surprised by Jamie Carragher's decision

The 35-year-old centre-back announced he will hang up his boots at the end of the season despite stellar recent displays against Arsenal and Manchester City.

Dalglish, who managed Carragher at Anfield between 2011 and 2012, told the Liverpool Echo: "Jamie's decision was a surprise to me because he has just played as well as anyone against Arsenal and Manchester City.

"I thought he had a bit left in him yet but he knows himself better than anybody and if he thinks it is time to hang up the old boots that is totally his prerogative.

"It is always a difficult decision for a footballer - as hard a decision as you can face as a professional.

"It is more difficult because playing is the best part of your career - especially at the level he has played at and is playing at."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
