New Liverpool academy chief Frank McParland has revealed defender Jamie Carragher is working on his coaching with the club's youngsters.

He told liverpoolfc.tv: "I've got to say as well that one of the things that has pleased me most is that Jamie Carragher is continuing to come up here to work on his coaching.

"Can you imagine what it's like for a 15-year-old or 16-year-old lad who dreams of making it as a Liverpool player to work with someone who has actually achieved their dream?

"Every time they see him they not only see what is possible if they work as hard as he did to make it, but they also see a tremendous example of how to conduct yourself as a Liverpool player.

"Just by being here Carra is giving the lads a massive boost and by working with them it just adds to the mix and supports what we are trying to achieve here."
