Liverpool defender Carragher: Scrutiny in game now is massive

Liverpool veteran Jamie Carragher admits the scrutiny players are now under is more intense than ever.

Carragher knows every decision made at a club like Liverpool is under the microscope.

"I think the game is massive now," he told the Liverpool Echo. "There is so much more public opinion from supporters and the press, from agents and managers.

"You have Sky Sports News and the internet, where everybody has an opinion about the club and players. Previously, there were only a few to disagree with the choices made by a club or player. Now, people all over the world have their say. This creates enormous pressure when you make a career decision.

"Players are coming and going - but hopefully it won't be me!"
