Carragher has floated the idea of hanging up the boots during the past week.
"I was fortunate to play for years under Bill Shankly, Bob Paisley and Joe Fagan. And if you don't know what makes a good boss after playing under those men, you'll never know.
"They were all different but all had fantastic strengths, a passion for the game and a love of Liverpool FC.
"Not one of them would tolerate a player giving anything but his best, week in week out. They were born winners who loved the fans and reminded their players of their duty towards them. Shanks in particular worshipped the fans as much as they loved him.
"All sound familiar?
"They are exactly the qualities and characteristics which Jamie Carragher possesses in abundance."
