Jamie Carragher Signs Up To Sky Sports

Tue 30th Apr 2013 | Television & Broadcasting

Sky Sports has strengthened its line-up of football experts with the signing of Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher.

Jamie will join Sky Sports in August 2013, ahead of its biggest ever football season, adding to a line-up that includes Gary Neville, Jamie Redknapp, Graeme Souness, Niall Quinn and Alan Smith.

Speaking of his appointment, Jamie said: “I watch Sky Sports all the time and I’m a huge fan. I can’t wait to be part of their coverage and work with the best in the business. What Sky has done for football for over 20 years is incredible and I’m thrilled to be part of their exciting plans for next season.”

He continued: “I don’t think there could be a better move for me: to retire from one of the world’s best football clubs at the end of the season and then join one of the world’s best broadcasters. Until that time comes, I’ll remain fully focussed on my remaining playing career with Liverpool and I’m looking forward to ending the season with good results.”

Barney Francis, Managing Director of Sky Sports, said: “Jamie has everything you want in an expert analyst; opinions, experience and incredible knowledge. He’s hugely respected throughout the game and I know his immense insight on today’s players, teams and tactics will make our football coverage even better.

“He joins us fresh from the changing room of one of the world’s biggest clubs and will be part of our incredible line-up of football experts, who between them boast 25 League titles, 10 European trophies and over 700 international caps.”

Jamie has spent his entire playing career with Liverpool and in 734 appearances for the club; the 35-year old has won the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Cup, two UEFA Super Cups, two FA Cups and three League Cups. He is only the second player to reach the landmark of 500 Premier League appearances for one club and is Liverpool’s longest serving player.
