Liverpool’s Jamie Carragher confirms his next move
Liverpool stalwart Jamie Carragher will join Sky Sports from the start of next season.
The veteran defender had previously announced that he would retire at the end of the current campaign, although the rumour mill had suggested he was thinking of performing a U-turn and staying on for one more season.
But Sky has now confirmed that Carra will line-up alongside Gary Neville, Graeme Souness and former team-mate Jamie Redknapp as one of its main pundits for next season.
Carragher said: “I watch Sky Sports all the time and I’m a huge fan. I can’t wait to be part of their coverage and work with the best in the business.
“What Sky has done for football for over 20 years is incredible and I’m thrilled to be part of their exciting plans for next season.
“I don’t think there could be a better move for me: to retire from one of the world’s best football clubs at the end of the season and then join one of the world’s best broadcasters.
“Until that time comes, I’ll remain fully focussed on my remaining playing career with Liverpool and I’m looking forward to ending the season with good results.”
The 35-year-old had obviously impressed the broadcaster with his Euro 2012 punditry for ITV.
