Liverpool’s Carragher to retire, 700-plus games

Liverpool says long-serving defender Jamie Carragher will retire

at the end of the season.

The 35-year-old Carragher has been at Liverpool since the age of

9.

Carragher says Thursday, ”it has been a privilege and an honor

to represent this great club for as long as I have.”

Only Ian Callaghan has made more appearances for Liverpool than

the 700-plus by Carragher.
