Jamie Carragher could bring back Liverpool FC boot room, says Mark Lawrenson
LIVERPOOL FC great Mark Lawrenson says Jamie Carragher could help re-form the LFC boot room after the defender announced he would retire from the game at the end of the season.
Lawrenson is one of a host of ex-Reds who think the defender would be perfect for a coaching role at Melwood.
"Jamie would be great on the training pitch," he said.
"A great link between the players and manager and the team and the supporters.
"The days of the Boot Room have gone. In those days he would be brought on board as a coach. Maybe something could replace that old Boot Room and Jamie stays.
"It is so important to keep that link, especially with Jamie who has been the perfect role model."
John Aldridge would love to see Carragher handed a job at Liverpool – though wishes him well in whatever he chooses to do.
"I would like to see Jamie Carragher do what Jamie Carragher wants to do," said Aldridge.
"He deserves to go down whichever avenues he wants, whether that be a coaching role or moving into television.
"Whatever he chooses, I wish him all the very best.
"From a selfish point of view as a Liverpool fan, I would love to see him stay around at Melwood.
"With so many youngsters coming through the club now, who better to have around them than Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher?
"There are no better players to show the new lads ‘The Liverpool Way’. He’s a great role model for the younger players and Jamie would be able to teach the new lads what the Premier League is all about.
"I would like him to stay at the club in the way they used to under Bill Shankly.
"If there is not a coaching role available then, at the very least, he could become an ambassador for the club."
Ian Callaghan, the only man to have represented Liverpool more than Carragher, says the defender has all the attributes to move into coaching.
"Having met Jamie, I would expect he will want to stay in the game," said Callaghan, who played for Liverpool 857 times.
"He is football mad and apart from being a great player, he is a top man for stats on the game. He is an intelligent guy.
"He has that mentality you need to be a manager."
Phil Thompson added: "I know Jamie and know his passion for football and know he has an obsession with the game.
"Hopefully he can slot into the coaching staff at Liverpool."
