Jamie Carragher’s place in Liverpool’s storied history needs no introduction and the Reds icon will be hoping to witness the class of 2022 making some more on Saturday.
Liverpool’s stunning season concludes at the weekend when they face Real Madrid in the Champions League final.
Victory for Jurgen Klopp’s side will see them win a Treble this term (alongside the Carabao Cup and FA Cup) – with Manchester City denying them the Premier League title by a point on the final day of the season.

And Carragher will be there in person to cheer on his beloved Liverpool at the Stade de France in Paris, alongside his son James.
Carragher Snr posted a snap of the pair together on Instagram on Friday morning ahead of them departing for the French capital.
‘Here we come!’, he captioned the Instagram story while both donned Champions League-themed attire.
Real Madrid have beaten Paris Saint-Germain, Chelsea and Manchester City in dramatic fashion during the knockout stages so far but Carragher is confident that their luck will run out against his former side.
‘I’ve watched Real Madrid in the Champions League this season and they’ve lost more games in the Champions League than Liverpool have lost all season in all competitions,’ he told Sky Bet’s The Overlap podcast.

‘Real Madrid are a very good team but they’re not as good as Man City and I don’t think they’re as good as Chelsea – even though they beat both of them.
‘You can spin it both ways with the spirit, the winning, the coming back, but they’ve carried a lot of luck in those games, which you need. If you win every game in the last minute coming from behind, if you’re that good a team you don’t get yourself in that position all the time.
‘Man City should have battered them, they should have won [their semi-final first leg] 6-2 at home – and then they’re 3-0 down at home to Chelsea.
‘Of course, Real can win – it’s a one-off game. I just think if City or Liverpool were playing Real Madrid in a one-off game, having their team and playing near their best, they’d win the game. I’m confident.’
