Liverpool chief insists there will be an LFC ‘job for life’ for unique Carragher

Liverpool Chairman Tom Werner has paid tribute to retiring Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher.

Speaking to the Liverpool Echo, Tom said:

"We wish Jamie well in his new career and the door will always be open for him at Liverpool.

"I really hope we see him back at the club one day because with all that experience and knowledge we know he has so much to offer.

"Whether it's as a coach, an analyst or whatever, there will always be a job for him here.

"We hoped he would play on for another season but we fully respect his decision to retire.

Carragher is hanging up his boots after Sunday's game at Anfield against QPR in what will be his 737th game for the club - before joining Sky Sports television as a football analyst next season.

Tom continued:

"He wants to leave the party before the last call and I understand that.

"I have nothing but admiration for him - both on and off the field.

"It's a big challenge to try to replace him. He's a unique individual and I think finding another player just like him will be impossible."

Liverpool take on QPR at 4pm on Sunday.
