Jamie Carragher: I'd have loved to have won the title at Liverpool but there was always someone better than us
Tragedy: Carragher was watching Everton as events at Hillsborough unfolded

Carragher has the knack of finding the right words. But he is not just the Bootle boy made good, a Liverpool link to a team and a club long since overtaken by globalisation. His charisma allows him to provide leadership and maintain a connection with the fans.

But we may be seeing the last of Carragher, the player, anyway. When he talks about the season ahead, it is almost wistfully. He is in the last year of his contract. There is a chance he will not be offered another.

‘To be honest, I’ve got a year to go,’ he says. ‘I don’t want to think about it too much — even though I do think about it a lot. It might be my last year in football. I just want to enjoy it as much as possible.’

It seems conceivable that he will play for another club. He explains how he never enjoyed watching the Spanish star Raul play for German club Schalke because, he says, ‘it always saddened me when he left Real Madrid. I just thought, “He IS Real Madrid”. It doesn’t look right. It’s special when you’ve played for one team.’
