"Looks like he'll win the title this season. Would I want Steven Gerrard to be the Liverpool manager without more experience? Possibly not.

"Because I just think when you get those really big jobs and you haven't got that experience you've got nothing to fall back on when times are tough as they will be for the next few weeks for Frank.

"Players of my generation, certainly me, I don't want to go down to the lower leagues and learn about coaching."

Carragher's fears for Lampard proved well founded, as his former England team-mate was sacked as Chelsea manager a few weeks later.

And Liverpool fans will hope the same fate does not befall Gerrard if he does take over the Anfield hotseat.

"Nowhere near good enough" - Jamie Carragher brutally assesses Divock Origi .
Jamie Carragher has provided a brutal assessment of Divock Origi, claiming he is “nowhere near good enough”.

Origi has made just two Premier League starts all season, also scoring only once in all competitions. Speaking on Sky Sports‘ Super 6 Podcast, Carragher didn’t hold back with regards to the striker, saying he simply isn’t up to the level required at Anfield: “If you look at Liverpool’s attacking players they don’t have a striker. Jota is not a striker, same with Mane, same with Salah.” “They have Divock Origi but he’s nowhere near good enough.
