Liverpool veteran Carragher: I would love to chat with Man Utd boss Ferguson

Liverpool icon Jamie Carragher admits he would love to speak with Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson at length about coaching.

Carragher has ambitions to one day manage Liverpool and was asked a nominee as his imaginary interviewee.

"I love talking about the game, learning things from people, but there's always a mystique about people you haven't had the chance to speak to," he said.

"The likes of Alex Ferguson and Jose Mourinho, I could talk to them all day and that's one reason I answered the call from Fabio Capello to go to the World Cup. I wanted to see him at close quarters.

"I wasn't disappointed and got on great with him. He used to make me laugh every day, honestly. It was just the way he was - no messing. I loved that.

"I've also spoken at length with Gerard Houllier and Rafa Benitez about their methods, so if I had to choose someone, it would be Ferguson.

"What would I ask him? How long have you got? All day? I'd just want to find out what he would make of certain situations and how he would react to them. Just how he goes about things, how he makes it all work."
