Carragher says English managers do not get the chance at the top level domestically.
He said: "Benitez, Houllier, Mourinho – they've all got things about them in terms of having won the big trophies. Does that mean English managers don't get a chance at the Premier League?
"Look at Chelsea with a 33-year-old manager. In years gone by David Moyes would have got that position, or an up and coming manager who's done a great job but that doesn't happen anymore and with the national team it's about what you've achieved, what you've got in the locker."
