Benitez said: “He’s a local player and I think this is really good for him.
“All the supporters will be really happy to see him, especially because he always gives 100 per cent.
“Sometimes when you look at players, they have a lot of quality but sometimes they don’t play very well. But in the case of Carra, he always plays at a very good level.
“He’s the kind of player that all the managers would want in their own team.”
Carragher will make his 300th Premiership appearance against Reading tomorrow.
