Carragher: I learned most from Hyypia at Liverpool

Liverpool veteran Jamie Carragher says he learned most from Sami Hyypia during his career.

Carragher plays his final game this weekend.

He told "The best centre-back I played alongside was Sami Hyypia, I thought he was a great player for the club. We've had lots of players but it could also be a coach; we had Phil Thompson here, Benitez was brilliant at setting up defences. He brought my game on a lot in terms of playing at centre-back because that was his expertise - making a team solid. It's difficult to pick one person, I've had a lot of help from a lot of different people."
