Jamie Carragher is prepared to wait for his chance on Liverpool's bench.

The Reds' vice-captain acknowledges his new role, and says he can't complain because the team have kept five clean sheets in their last nine games.

"It's not really difficult to adjust to being a sub," said Carragher. "The lads are playing well. Of course you want to play - and the manager wouldn't expect anything else.

"When I have been playing over the years and doing well, someone else has had to sit on the bench for me. The roles have reversed now and you have to show respect to the manager, the club and the players playing in my position. I appreciate that.

"The club have done a lot for me over the years and I'm not going to say anything or cause any trouble just because I'm not playing.

"You've got to be professional and wait for your chance. When it comes, you have got to do as well as you can."
