Carragher calls for focus

17 April 2008
Jamie Carragher has warned his team-mates not to be distracted by the boardroom shenanigans at Liverpool. Owners George Gillett and Tom Hicks have constantly been at loggerheads with manager Rafa Benitez and chief executive Rick Parry also coming in for criticism. But Carragher has called on his side to focus only on securing fourth place and reaching a third Champions League final in four season.

"We've got to concentrate on Fulham," insisted Carragher.

Carragher is keen to make sure Liverpool maintain some form with one eye on next week's Champions League semi-final first-leg clash against Chelsea.

"If we took our eye off them we could end up losing and maybe with it a bit of confidence for when we play Chelsea," he said.

"Fulham are fighting for their lives and it will be tough. They need the points as much as us.

"We must keep our form going as Everton will take it to the wire."
