Jamie Carragher has said that he wants to finish his last season for Liverpool on a winning note.

Carragher is going to retire from professional football at the end of this season. He featured for the Reds for almost 17 years and played more than 500 matches for them.

He became 35 years old this year, but, he was still playing at his best. In the first half of the ongoing season, he didn’t get regular opportunities, but, since January, the manager Brendan Rodgers showed faith in him and he stood up to the expectations of the manager. His form has been tremendous in the last few months.

Now, Carragher is looking to finish this season and his career in a memorable way. Liverpool has to play a couple of more games and Carragher is expected to captain the Reds in those two games because the regular captain of the team Steven Gerrard is out injured.

Talking to the reporters, Carragher said, “We have put up good performances consistently this year and now, we want to finish the season on a winning note. We have two games left and we will try hard to win both of them. I would love to retire with a win.”

“This hasn’t been a bad season for us. Yes, in the first half of the season, the consistency was not there. The manager tried to give chances to the youngsters, but, in the second half, he brought in more experience into the starting XI and the results improved significantly.”

“Not too many clubs have performed better than us defensively. We have 15 clean sheets and that’s fantastic. But, we couldn’t match other teams in scoring goals.”

Liverpool’s next match will be against Fulham. That match will be played on 12th of May at Craven Cottage.
