Liverpool youngster Andre Wisdom grateful for Carragher influence

Liverpool defender Andre Wisdom is grateful for Jamie Carragher's influence on his fledgling career.

The 19-year-old defender was one of the beneficiaries as Carragher worked to earn his UEFA coaching licences.

Now the pair are playing together in the first team.

"I was in the U16s," Wisdom wrote in a column for Liverpool FC magazine. "I remember Jamie Carragher taking some of our sessions as part of his coaching qualifications. From there I progressed through the ranks.

"To now be playing with him is great. I learned a lot from him back then and I'm still learning a lot from him now. He's still coaching me in training.

"In fact, I think he coaches everyone. He passes on so much information that he's almost doing the job of a coach already."
