One of Liverpool's most endearing and enduring players of recent times, Jamie Carragher, is set for retirement at the end of the current season, hanging up his boots as the man with the second-most appearances for the club.
Much talk has centred already around who Liverpool will sign to replace the No. 23, who in recent weeks has won his place back in the starting lineup on a regular basis after more than a year of playing as backup to Martin Skrtel and Daniel Agger.
Of equal importance, at least to the player himself, is what he might do after his playing days come to an end.
Taking time off to be with his family might be first on the agenda, but there is little doubt that Carragher should return shortly to a role within football.
Media punditry and coaching have both been mentioned as possible avenues for the defender to explore, but it is in first-team management that his new career path should take him. Here's a look at Carragher's attributes which make him an ideal candidate to be top boss at a club in England before long.
