About

Liverpool footballer turned presenter and podcast host

Jamie Carragher worked his way through Liverpool Football Club’s youth ranks, helping them win their first ever FA Youth Cup in 1996, alongside Michael Owen and David Thompson. In 1997 at the age of 18 he made his senior team debut against Middlesbrough in the Coca-Cola Cup. The following year brought his Premiership debut during a clash with Aston Villa, where he scored a goal.

Throughout his career, Carragher racked up more than 700 appearances for his hometown club, usually playing defensive positions. He was part of the Liverpool FC team that won a treble (the FA Cup, League Cup and UEFA Cup) in 2001 as well as the League Cup in 2003.

In Istanbul in 2005, Carragher and company managed one of the greatest comebacks of all time. With Liverpool down 3-0 to AC Milan in the Champions League Final, they fought back to win what many fans – especially Liverpool supporters – call “The Greatest Game”.

Liverpool FC took home another FA Cup in 2006. Carragher’s final game for the club came against Queens Park Rangers in 2013 at Anfield, where the home crowd sent him away with a standing ovation.

Since 1998, Carragher had also been playing international football. By the time he retired from the sport, he’d earned 38 caps and represented England at three major tournaments.

Carragher signed on as a broadcaster with Sky Sports in late 2013 and soon established himself as one of the top football analysts in the country.

In October 2019, the Liverpool legend launched his own podcast called The Greatest Game, during which he speaks to guests about their teams and love of football plus asks what they believe the greatest game is. Now one of the most listened to UK sport podcasts, it has also been topping charts around the world.

On 13 November 2020, Carragher announced a special edition of The Greatest Game would be livestreamed on 26 November.
