Hopefully Kenny Dalglish is going to remain as the Liverpool manager for many seasons to come and bring back the success the club so richly deserves. I have no doubt that Kenny can go on for another 5 – 10 years as Liverpool manager if the team is doing well, but as with anything good, it has to come to an end at some point and we will need to get someone in to takeover from King Kenny.

Look at Manchester United, the day Sir Alex Ferguson decides to call it quits, is the day I see that club going into a serious downward spiral. They do not have anyone lined up to replace Ferguson and thus they are trying as best as they can to keep him.

Now at Liverpool, we hopefully have a solution in place for the departure of Dalglish and it could lie in Jamie Carragher. Just like Dalglish himself, he went from being a player and straight into the hot seat. Hopefully Carragher would be able to do the same but we all know that there are some players who have been great on the field but when they move to the dugout they were terrible! We do not have to look far, just look at Graeme Souness; great on the field for Liverpool but did very little when he was manager of the club.

Carragher himself has already made it clear that he wants to get into coaching and management when he hangs up his boots which could be as soon as the end of next season or the season after. I am sure right now he is learning as much as he can from Dalglish and his coaching staff. As romantic as it would be to have our very own local lad take over the club as manager, he will be under immense pressure to deliver results or else he will be sacked.

Martin Kelly has come out and said that he believes Carragher has what it takes to succeed as a manager.

“He has definitely got all the attributes to become a manager,” said Kelly.

“He would definitely get the best out of players. He won’t settle for second best and I look forward to seeing such a massive player for the club go into management.”

Do you think Jamie Carragher would be a good Liverpool manager

    JC is a good and probably one of the best CB in the KOP business but his playing style lacked dynamism, just sheer determination to defend. I dont think he has the right mentality to bring the Kop to a high level. YNWA

    I think in time carra will be manager of liverpool and i think
    he would be a fantastic choice,the lad has a heart and mouth as big as the mersey and i mean that in the best possible way.

  3. Mikey says:

    Not for me. When he said he would use Houllier as a role model. Back to the defensive counter attacking mentality that Hodgson tried to impose.

    Would prefer Rafa to come back.

  4. SQ says:

    If you read into his comments, and also his playing style and philosophy, i think he will be a good coach. Shouting and rollicking isnt a prerequisite to becoming a good manager.

    why not see how Robbie Fowler does in Thailand? and then get him to link up with Kenny…

  6. chri5jo says:

    What’s with the title! I know to get people to read but then makes the article look stupid. It’s not revealing nothing new. Carragher as stated this for the last few years but that doesn’t mean it will be for us!

  7. Hmm I’m not sure either way. His style on the pitch would lead to a well drilled team that would be hard to beat, but I can’t ignore the hoof factor.

    The suggestion to make Carragher Liverpool manager in the future doesn’t bare thinking about. Many great Liverpool players have went into management and coaching with far superior technique than Jamie Carragher and haven’t been mentioned once. Don’t get me wrong he’s been a great servant for liverpool, with great tackling ability and passion, but his ability to shout his mouth off too often at fellow players even when he himself is at fault many times, all too often choosing his preferred method of passing, belting the ball skyward instead of patient build up leaves me to think defense coach or championship manager. Liverpool in the end is one of the biggest football clubs in the world, and with that you need one great coach playing in the style of an obvious favourite Barcelona or the likes…under Carragher, i couldn’t see this happen.

  9. M. says:

    No thanks. He ‘ll be similar to his playing days, lots of passion but mediocre. He ‘ll make into a younger version of Hodgeson.

    I ‘ll take Rafa any time instead. If not Rafa, someone from continental Europe, French, Portuguese or Dutch. May be Blanc, Deschamp or Van Gaul.

  10. Jack says:

    If we want someone worse than Hodgson, then by all mean appoint Carragher.

  11. poo hed says:

    if i were to pick anyone from the current squad to be a potential manager it would be Reina hands down, considerably infront of carragher.

    has anyone read his book; is it good ?

  12. Mez says:

    i voted yes but i’d want steven gerrard to become our next player-manager really.
