Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has refused to confirm rumours he will add Jamie Carragher to his coaching staff.
The 32-year-old defender, currently sidelined with a shoulder injury, sat alongside Dalglish in the dugout during the 1-0 defeat to Manchester United at the weekend.
And while Dalglish expects Carragher to one day go into coaching, the Scot would not comment on suggestions the former England international is to join his backroom team at Anfield.
He said: “Carragher is doing his badges, he did them at the academy.
“I am sure long term he wants to get involved in football and I'm sure he will.
“Right at this particular moment in time he's on his way back from his dislocated shoulder and progressing very well. He's not even in for training.
“It was great to see him because he's someone who knows what this club stands for and for him to come and show his support for the boys at Old Trafford, that tells you something about the person.
“As I've said, there will be discussions that happen after this but right at this moment in time the appointment of Steve (Clarke as first-team coach) is all we've got to say.
“That's not to dismiss in any way, shape or form anything else you have in your mind.
“There are answers that have to be given but unfortunately today we haven't been given enough time to give definitive answers.”
