Jamie Carragher’s worst nightmare looks set to become a reality.

The Liverpool legend has been a welcome addition to Monday Night Football after Carragher cast his rivalry with Manchester United aside to forge a formidable double act with Gary Neville.

One of Carragher’s best moments in the Sky Sports studio came when he joked that no youngster grows up wanting to be a right-back, or the next Gary Neville.

However, in a twist of fate, the Champions League winner’s son James is currently playing at right-back in the Liverpool youth set-up.

When Sky Sports host Ed Chamberlain asked the ex-defender about the development, Carragher admitted that he is drafting in famed sports psychologist Dr Steven Peters in a bid to reverse his son’s decision.

Carragher is Liverpool’s second-highest appearance maker behind Ian Callaghan after racking up 737 games during his Anfield career.
