Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher dedicated his whole career to the Reds, making his debut in 1997 and finally bowing out over 16 years later with 737 appearances to his name. By the time he hung up his boots he had a string of trophies to his name, including two FA Cups, three League Cups, a UEFA Cup and of course the big one – the Champions League, won on that unforgettable night in Istanbul in 2005.

After retiring from playing Carra moved into broadcasting where he became part of the Sky Sports team covering the big games and, unsurprisingly, took to it like a duck to water.  Carra’s no-nonsense attitude transferred perfectly from pitch to screen and, tied in with his instinctive humour, his work on the TV has brought him well deserved acclaim.

Carra is heading down under in February visiting cities in Australia and New Zealand to talk not only about his Anfield career but also about current events at the club and in the football world, all told in his hilarious yet honest style with a few stories thrown in you might not hear elsewhere.
