Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher is looking forward to the first day of preseason tomorrow.

The majority of the Reds' first-team squad are back at Melwood for pre-season training on Monday and the vice-captain is confident they can go on to enjoy a successful campaign.

"I'm really looking forward to getting back into it," he told liverpoolfc.tv.

"We've had longer than usual off this year and I want to get started now.

"At the end of the season you're ready for a holiday and a rest but by halfway through your time off the focus turns to the following season.

"You start getting excited again. I feel refreshed and ready.

"It's a new start and there's a new sense of optimism.

"Our form in the second half of last season was very good and we need to ensure we prepare well and get off to a decent start this season."
