Jamie Carragher is refusing to give up hope of Liverpool qualifying for Europe.

Prior to Kenny Dalglish taking the reins at Anfield in January, a place in European competition next season looked to be an unachievable goal.

But Liverpool have lost just three times in 13 Barclays Premier League games since Dalglish's appointment and now have a realistic chance a securing their path into the Europa League.

The Reds currently occupy sixth place in the league which, as it stands, means Liverpool would miss out on qualification.

However, Carragher - Britain's most capped player in European competition - maintains the belief that the Anfield club can secure a place in continental competition, whether or not they finish fifth.


"I think they (European hopes) are realistic," he told Liverpoolfc.tv. "We've got another opportunity now with City reaching the FA Cup final - if they can win the cup and don't finish in the top four, that's another avenue.

"I'm looking at all the different ways we can get in there. I'm desperate for us to get back into Europe - Liverpool have to be in Europe."
