Liverpool icon Thompson: Carragher one of our own

Liverpool icon Phil Thompson has paid tribute to Jamie Carragher ahead of his testimonial tomorrow.

Carra stages his big match against Everton at Anfield on Saturday and Thompson said it is a chance for the Kop to salute a Scouse hero.

"Carra has been a magnificent servant for the club and he will go down as a true legend in the game," Thompson told liverpoolfc.tv.

"He's one of our own. A lad who crossed the divide from being an Evertonian to a Liverpudlian.

"Everyone knows his passion and commitment. He's had some difficult times over the years with injuries and having to play at full-back, but he's come through.

"His drive and focus is remarkable but he can play too. He's a great defender who reads the game so well."
