Jamie Carragher signed for Liverpool FC as a professional in 1996 after coming through the youth ranks at Anfield. The longest serving member of the current squad, Carragher has gone on to make over 600 appearances for The Reds and is currently the vice captain to Steven Gerrard. After being deployed by former Liverpool manager Gerard Houllier mainly as a utility player, Carragher firmly established himself as a stalwart in the centre of the Liverpool defence under Rafael Benitez. 'Carra' has gone on to claim international honours for England and was picked for the World Cups in 2006 and 2010, as well as the 2004 European Championships. Carragher made the decision to retire from international football in 2007 due to the frustration at the lack of starting opportunuites for England. However, Carragher was persuaded to come out of retirement by Fabio Capello for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. Off the field, Carragher has opened his first restaurant in Liverpool called Cafe Sport, released his autobiography 'Carra' and is heavily involved with a number of local chairities.
