Following the game, Liverpool's legendary centre-back - working for Sky Sports - spoke to Klopp and just couldn't resist asking him for a place on the bench.
Klopp, of course, couldn't contain his laughter and admitted that he has been asked that type of question before.
Liverpool fans certainly would have enjoyed the humours comment from their former star, who has only increased his reputation in the game since calling time on his playing career.
Carragher may well have been having a little bit of fun, but Reds fans would certainly love him back in his prime.
Ultimately, though, they will have to make do with their current stars on Merseyside; Mamadou Sakho and co. may well lead Liverpool to cup glory.
