Carragher regretting retirement after Liverpool season form

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher admits he's now regretting his retirement.

He revealed how Brendan Rodgers attempted to convince him to play on, writing in the Daily Mail: "I made my announcement public in February but a few weeks later, at Melwood, Brendan invited me for another conversation.

"He asked me whether I would consider postponing retiring for another season. Again, my answer was 'no'. I was set in my ways, content with the decision I had reached. Only one thing could have changed my mind.

"It wasn't the prospect of more appearances; it had nothing to do with another contract or anything like that. If I felt Liverpool were going to compete for the one honour that had eluded me - the Barclays Premier League - I would have said 'yes' in a flash.

"At that time, I could only see Liverpool challenging for a top-four place. If I had been able to see into the future, I would now be preparing for tomorrow's showdown with Chelsea."
