Career exceeded expectations – Carragher

Jamie Carragher, LiverpoolJamie Carragher believes that he could not have asked for a better Liverpool career as he prepares to bow out.

The one-club man is set to lead the side out at Anfield on the final day of the season against QPR, in the absence of injured captain Steven Gerrard.

The 35-year-old admits that it would have been the icing on the cake to win the Premier League title during his lengthy time on Merseyside, but he feels that he has collected so many other honours that he can forget about it.

Carragher will make his 737th appearance against the relegated club on Sunday and he admits that he still has to pinch himself to make sure it hasn’t all been a dream.

Carragher said: “If someone had offered me to be here until the end of my career, with the trophies we’ve won and big games and stadiums I’ve played in, I’d have taken their hand off.

“I’ve been very lucky to play with some top players and managers that have given me the opportunity to experience those wins and, yes, sometimes losses.

“Of course, I wish I had won the league. Why didn’t we ever win the league? It’s very simple. We weren’t good enough. There’s no fancy reason or excuse. The teams were better than us.”
