JAMIE Carragher is prepared to be patient in his pursuit of regular football at Liverpool, with the form of others currently keeping him on the sidelines.
The experienced centre-half was, for a number of years, considered to be virtually untouchable at Anfield.
He has, however, slipped behind Daniel Agger and Martin Skrtel in the pecking order this season, with an unfortunate injury having left the door open for that pair to cement their standing in Kenny Dalglish’s thoughts.
Carragher is not the type to kick up a fuss about finding himself out of favour, with it not in his nature to rock the boat.
“Of course, every player wants to play. But I went out of the team through injury and other players have come in and played well,” Carragher told the Mail on Sunday.
“The manager has been fair to those players and rightly so.
“Daniel Agger and Martin Skrtel have been two of our best players. I’ve got to wait my turn, just as other players had to wait their turn when I’d been playing for so long.
Carragher would never dare question the authority of Dalglish at Anfield, with the Kop hero having helped to see Liverpool through a sticky patch and out of the other side.
“There has been a lot happening on and off the pitch in recent times,” he said.
