Carragher to retire

http://www.ontheminute.com/news/news.php?news=41508

Jamie Carragher is to retire from football at the end of the current season.

The Liverpool centre back says he is calling time on his career now to avoid speculation in the months ahead.

He told the club's website: "I'm making this announcement now because I don't want the manager or the club to be answering questions on my future when I've already decided what I am going to do.

"I will be fully committed between now and the end of the season to doing the very best for Liverpool, as I have done my entire career since joining aged just nine years old.

"It has been a privilege and an honour to represent this great club for as long as I have and I am immensely proud to have done so and thankful for all the support I have had. There are many memories I want to share and people to thank, but now is not the time for that."
