Liverpool veteran Jamie Carragher is keen to get straight back into it after having some time of following last season.

The Reds finished last campaign in solid fashion and after returning to pre-season training, Carragher is looking to be a part of a big off-season with the Merseyside club.

"We've had longer than usual off this year and I want to get started now," he said. "It's a new start and there's a new sense of optimism. It's going to be great to have most of the players around from the start of pre-season.

"Our form in the second half of last season was very good and we need to ensure we prepare well and get off to a decent start this season.

"That will make a big difference. It can be difficult with the preparations when everyone comes back in dribs and drabs.

"It's good for the manager to have everyone around and it means after a decent pre-season we should be ready to start the season.

"It will be great to see all the lads again and I'm sure there will be a few new faces coming in before the transfer window closes."
