Liverpool and former England defender Jamie Carragher is to cover action in South Africa as part of talkSPORT’s broadcast team for this year’s World Cup.
Carragher will broadcast alongside station regular Adrian Durham.
Commenting on Carragher’s signing with the station, Durham said: “I cannot wait to be sat alongside Jamie, someone who was at the last World Cup as a player, who will be able to convey just what it’s like to be in the World Cup cauldron.”
Carragher added: “I truly believe that the talent within the England squad, under Capello’s guidance, can bring home the World Cup. I’m excited at joining talkSPORT, Adrian and the listeners as England embark on what we hope will be an historic year.”
Jamie Carragher won’t be taking a fee for his appearances – instead he has asked that talkSPORT make a donation to his charity, The 23 Foundation.
