Liverpool boss Rodgers: Carragher influence crucial for Wisdom

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has hailed the influence of Jamie Carragher on young teammate Andre Wisdom.

The 19 year-old defender is tipped for big things at Liverpool.

Rodgers said: "It is critical. The likes of Andre Wisdom look up so much to guys like Jamie Carragher, and to be on the same field as him and learning from his experience and leadership qualities is very, very important.

"Sometimes as a coach, you can coach players, you can talk with them, you can educate them, but when they go out onto the field, if they've got top players around them that can also help them manage the game from the inside.

"Guys like Carra are top class at that and, for me, your young players are only as good as your senior players."
