Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher admits he spoke with Everton boss Roberto Martinez about the Spaniard taking the Anfield job.

Carra wrote in the Daily Mail: "Of course, he was in the running to become Liverpool manager. When we spoke about it in Poland — Brendan (Rodgers) had already been appointed by then — he told me that one of his ideas would have been to use me as a sweeper.

"One of the main tasks he has is to get rid of the mental block Everton have with Liverpool. For all the good work David Moyes did — his ability to spot players who the club sold for big profits enabled Martinez to spend big this summer — his teams found it hard against us."
