Carragher: I will have to tone it down.

LIVERPOOL vicecaptain Jamie Carragher admits he will have to modify his ultra-competitive onfield attitude if he eventually decides to go into management.

The 33-year-old still has more than a year left on his current deal at Anfield, but has long been linked with a move into coaching. Carragher, the club's second highest appearance-maker with 667, is playing under his fifth Liverpool manager in Kenny Dalglish, and accepts he has learned much from all of them.

He does not know what sort of boss he would make should he decide to take the plunge, only that he will have to be a lot calmer.

"I probably wouldn't be able to lose my temper as much as I do on the pitch," said the centre-back.

"Managers these days don't really lose their temper too much, it's the way the modern manager is.

"I'd imagine if Kenny wasn't happy about something he just wouldn't pick you, I suppose that's the best way because sometimes it doesn't matter how much you shout.

"He is very easy going, which is maybe different to other managers I've worked under. They had their own styles, which again I've learned from in different ways.

"Every manager does it his own way and Kenny is an individual - he has a sense of humour and he wants that to rub off on his players.

"What it boils down to is success. If you win, it's the right way and if you don't it's looked at as being the wrong way."
