Liverpool veteran Carragher: I need to curb temper to be good manager

Liverpool veteran Jamie Carragher admits he'll have to curb his temper if he is to be a successful manager.

Liverpool veteran Jamie Carragher admits he'll have to curb his temper if he is to be a successful manager.

He does not know what sort of boss he would make should he decide to take the plunge when he eventually does retire from playing, only that he will have to be a lot calmer.

"I probably wouldn't be able to lose my temper as much as I do on the pitch," said the centre-back.

"Managers these days don't really lose their temper too much, it's the way the modern manager is.

"I'd imagine if Kenny wasn't happy about something he just wouldn't pick you, I suppose that's the best way because sometimes it doesn't matter how much you shout.

"He is very easy going, which is maybe different to other managers I've worked under.

"They had their own styles, which again I've learned from in different ways.

"Every manager does it his own way and Kenny is an individual - he has a sense of humour and he wants that to rub off on his players.

"What it boils down to is success. If you win, it's the right way and if you don't it's looked at as being the wrong way.

"There is no set pattern to being a manager and any player will tell you that they take little things from every manager or coach you play for.

"But when you get into a job like that you only learn from your mistakes - the more experience you get, the better you get in dealing with situations.

"However, until it happens it is not something I'm really thinking about."
