Carragher set for swansong
Posted On May 17, 2013
Sunday’s game at Anfield sees Liverpool host bottom of the table Queens Park Rangers, in what will be Jamie Carragher’s final appearance for the Reds.
The veteran defender, who will captain the side in the absence of Steven Gerrard, is set to be given a guard of honour from both sides prior to kick off, whilst fans in the Kop will form a mosaic reading ‘JC 23’.
Carragher yesterday revealed to the Liverpool Echo that he had considered ending his career at Christmas having made just one league game in the first half of the season, though he has started all but one of the Reds last fifteen matches.
Despite calls by some to reverse his decision to call time on his playing career, Carragher will make his 737th and final appearance for Liverpool, before joining up with Sky Sports as a pundit next season, where he will work with former teammate Jamie Redknapp.
Meanwhile, Andre Wisdom and Fabio Borini could be handed starts for Sunday’s match, while striker Daniel Sturridge will be hoping to add to his hat-trick at Fulham last time out.
Elsewhere, Sturridge and Glen Johnson have been called up to the England squad for the forthcoming friendlies against the Republic of Ireland and Brazil.
Andy Carroll, currently on loan with West Ham United, has also been included.
