Sir Alex Ferguson Admits His Love Of Jamie Carragher

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has admitted that he loved the way Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher plays his football.

Both Carragher and Ferguson will retire on Sunday and the Scot told LFC TV of his admiration for the defender.

"He's absolutely a player I admire," Ferguson said. "He's the epitome of a loyal, dedicated player who Liverpool have been lucky to have for more than a decade.

"He's been a bedrock of their defensive qualities for years and years.

"I loved him. He's a fantastic example for any young lad that wants to play the game. He's been a really, really good professional.

"He's absolutely the type of player a manager wants. I used to rave about Brucie [Steve Bruce] and the nine years he had with us, and I think Jamie Carragher is that exact same mould - can play with injuries, gets knocked about and gets back up, hardly misses a game.

"You're lucky to have players like that. I was lucky to have Steve Bruce and he is the same type of player. A fantastic player."
