Gerrard dreams of Carragher reunion at Liverpool

Matt Stead

Steven Gerrard says that he has “imagined” reuniting with Jamie Carragher as backroom staff at Liverpool.

Gerrard and Carragher were mainstays in the Reds’ first team for over a decade and a half, with the midfielder making his debut in 1998, one year after Carragher.

The two would become regulars and eventually club legends at Anfield, winning a Champions League, two FA Cups, three League Cups and numerous other trophies.

Carragher retired from playing in summer 2013 and has since carved out a career in punditry, while Gerrard stayed for another two years before leaving for MLS side LA Galaxy.

But the midfielder, 35, is hoping for an Anfield reunion in the future.

“I’ve imagined it a lot. Jamie’s knowledge of the game is superb. I know the amount of time and effort he puts into to the work that he does now, also how much he loved the game when I played with him,” Gerrard told MR PORTER.

“I think we’ll both work for the club again at some point during the rest of our lives. When that will be, I don’t know. Will that be together? I’m not sure.

“Would I work with Jamie Carragher again for Liverpool? Of course I would, without a doubt, but it’s for other people to make that decision.

“It goes without saying that the club’s in our hearts and it’s difficult if the club come calling but we’ve other things going on at the moment – it’s not as if we’re begging for it or desperate for it – but they know where we are.

“When I retire from football I am going to be available for people to offer me roles if they feel I’m one of the candidates.”
