Steven Gerrard: I could not persuade Jamie Carragher to delay his retirement

Liverpool legend Carragher announced last week that this season will be his last, but only after Gerrard repeatedly tried to change his mind.

"I've known a little bit longer than other people. I've tried just as hard as everyone else to try to keep him going for a bit longer," Gerrard told the Liverpool Echo.

"He bounced a few things off me, but he's made the decision himself along with his family. He's basically taken no notice of what I said because I was trying for him to push on for another year. 

"At times this season it has been difficult for him not being a regular starter because he has been a starter since he made his debut. "I can respect and understand his decision. We're all going to come to that moment in our careers.
