fanatix tickets – Aston Villa vs Liverpool tickets are on sale from £30 for the match on March 31st at Villa Park.
The 35-year-old, who arrived at Anfield as a nine-year-old, made his Reds debut against Middlesbrough in Jan 1997 and has since played over 700 matches for the Merseysiders, second on the club’s all-time appearance list behind Ian Callaghan.
“I’m making this announcement because I don’t want the manager to be answering questions when I’ve already decided what I am going to do,” said Carragher, who has won the Champions League, Uefa Cup, FA Cup and League Cup during his illustrious career.
“I will be fully committed between now and the end of the season to doing the very best for Liverpool Football Club, as I have done my entire career since joining aged just nine.
“It has been a privilege and an honour to represent this great club for as long as I have. There are many memories I want to share and people to thank, but now is not the time for that.
“I won’t be making any further comment on this decision until the end of the season; all our focus and concentration should be on achieving the best possible finish in the league this season and trying to win the last remaining trophy [Europa League] we are competing in.”
