Jamie Carragher Predicts the Greatest Honour Lies in Wait for Fellow Anfield Legend

Tom Procter

Jamie Carragher believes that fellow legend Steven Gerrard will eventually have an Anfield stand named after him.

It comes after news broke from the club on Wednesday that the Centenary stand is set to be renamed.

One fan (@grevle68) on Twitter wrote to the former defender: "Carragher Stand Coming soon", complete with cool-face emoji, to which Carra admitted that he wouldn't be first in line.

He said: "Well Stevie will get one, can't change the Kop so it's a fight between me and Diouf for the last one!"

The banter was in reference to the war of words between the two, which has seen the former Senegalese international brand the Englishman a 'f****** loser', and Carragher to say that Diouf is the 'worst player he has ever played with.'

Gerrard is widely considered as the club's greatest ever player, and there are probably many who would not be opposed to him having a stand named after him.

The 36-year-old made 710 appearances in total for his boyhood club, scoring 186 goals and leading various teams to two FA Cups, three League Cups, a UEFA Cup and a famous Champions League, endearing himself to the hearts of Kop fans forever.

He left the club in 2015 after agreeing to join MLS outfit LA Galaxy in January, and joined up with his new teammates the following summer for a swansong season before hanging up his boots for good earlier in 2017.

He was recently made the manager of Liverpool's U18 side, as his affiliation with the club he loves continues.​
