Jamie Carragher 300
LIVERPOOL FC defender Jamie Carragher insists the Reds will be going all out to win the Premier League next season as they look to end a five-year wait for silverware.
The Anfield outfit’s last major trophy was the 2006 FA Cup, and last month they were forced to watch on as rivals Manchester United eclipsed their record of 18 league titles.
But with optimism swirling around the club this summer, Carragher is hoping to see his side challenge at the top of the table next season, and says he is desperate to help the them end their trophy drought.
“We want to be in there,” said Carragher. “We are Liverpool, we should be looking to be in there and challenging for trophies.
“It’s been a few years now since we won a trophy and that’s what we want to try and change this season coming – though I’m sure everyone has got the same idea!
“We can’t keep these records, the same applies with the five Champions Leagues, if we aren’t competing for them and trying to win more. We can’t stay at 18 (league titles), we want to try and win more and we realise it has been too long for Liverpool, and that is something we are all looking to change.”
The arrival of Kenny Dalglish as manager in January saw Liverpool embark on a strong run of form during the second half of last season.
It was not enough to secure them European football, but Dalglish was rewarded with a permanent three-year contract, and Carragher says the Scot’s managerial talents are obvious.
