Jamie Carragher says he played out his career at Liverpool because no-one offered to take him away!

Carragher, 35, seemed almost hurt by the fact as he reflected on his career as a one– club man.

He said: “I never really had the option to leave — I don’t know whether it was a good thing or bad thing. Maybe no-one rates me!

“I’ve never even been close. My agent has never rang me up and said, ‘This team fancy buying you’. Not once.

“Maybe I was always seen as ‘Mr Liverpool’, I suppose. You’ll have to ask different managers. But I’d never have left in any circumstances.

“Maybe those managers realised that. Or, like I said, they just didn’t fancy me.

“And I can’t say I ever thought about leaving when I wasn’t in the side. You have good times and bad times at your club.

“It’s like being a supporter. You don’t stop supporting your team because of a bad run.

“And we’ve had some great times here, won some big trophies. So I feel lucky and privileged.”
