Carragher would move on from Reds

Published Add your comment

Jamie Carragher would have "no problem" moving to another club if Liverpool decide against offering him a contract extension.

The 32-year-old defender will have a year remaining on his present deal when this season finishes, and there are no negotiations currently taking place about a renewal.

And Carragher, who has spent all of his career so far at Anfield, acknowledges there may come a time when he has to search for another club, telling the Sunday Times: "The club will give me a new contract if they want to. If not it doesn't matter, I'll still play my best and if I have to move then I'll move, no problem. It wouldn't bother me."

Carragher famously quit international football in 2007 after becoming frustrated with limited opportunities in the England team, and stresses he is "not scared of making big decisions".

"It's a club thing," he said. "It's down to them. I'll keep playing and see where it takes me."

Only Dirk Kuyt and Lucas Leiva have made more appearances than Carragher for Liverpool in the Premier League this season, suggesting the club still rely heavily on their vice-captain.

Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez said: "There is no news about Carragher. We have spoken to him and he was very clear that at this moment he just wants to concentrate on doing his job.

"I think Jamie prefers the situation as it is. The information I have is that he is comfortable with how things are and that he wants to wait."
