Retiring Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher admits he is

surprised that no other club tried to sign him during his

career.

Carragher will play the final game of his career against Queens

Park Rangers on Sunday after an illustrious 16-year spell at

Anfield.

The QPR game will be Carragher’s 737th appearance for Liverpool

and the former England international has revealed he is puzzled as

to why he was never linked with a possible move away from

Anfield

“I never really had the option to leave – I don’t know whether

it was a good thing or bad thing,” Carragher is quoted as saying in

The Sun. “Maybe no-one rates me!

“I’ve never even been close. My agent has never rang me up and

said, ‘This team fancy buying you’. Not once.

“Maybe I was always seen as ‘Mr Liverpool’, I suppose. You’ll

have to ask different managers. But I’d never have left in any

circumstances.

“Maybe those managers realised that. Or, like I said, they just

didn’t fancy me.

“And I can’t say I ever thought about leaving when I wasn’t in

the side. You have good times and bad times at your club.

“It’s like being a supporter. You don’t stop supporting your

team because of a bad run.

“And we’ve had some great times here, won some big trophies. So

I feel lucky and privileged.”
