Former Liverpool defender Daniel Agger is confident that his former club can continue with their impressive form this season that has already made them a title contender.
Unlike last season, the Reds
have made a head start to the Premier League campaign this year, sitting comfortably in fourth place after just eight matches so far. The Reds who reached two cup finals last campaign are much of a better squad this season and are currently challenging for every silver.
The 0-0 draw with Manchester United was the second time this campaign that Jürgen Klopp’s men have failed to score in all competition. It is this startling performance that has drawn the attention of their former defender Agger who says he has high hopes for this Liverpool team this season.
Here is what the former Liverpool told Liverpool.com:
“It’s going well so far. To be honest, I have some expectations this year, especially after last year. Jürgen is looking good for the club; I think he’s doing well. He has some great ideas and the way he talks to the media, everything, I like.”s Read more »

The signing of Coach Jurgen Klopp was met with so much joy by Liverpool fans, and well wishers.
Klopp has given the Reds squad a winning mentality, hope and the ability to dare to dream. Playing in two finals in his first tenure resuscitated a dying side under Brendan Rodgers. However, they remain a work in progress.
Liverpool is set to meet with Premier League defending champions Leicester City after the international break, and the encounter promises to be as exciting as their last show against Tottenham Hotspur. The Reds would need to bring their A game, as their opponents would not be easy to get past, and dropping so much points early in the season doesn’t end well. After former coach Rodgers allowed veteran Daniel Agger to leave, Klopp allowed Martin Skrtel and Kolo Toure leave as well. His signing Ragnar Klavan was beaten twice in action against Burnley, but the hope is that he would improve. Leicester under 21 Ben Chilwell was linked with a move to Liverpool but they couldn’t meet the fee of the Foxes. Read more »
Liverpool seemed to have secured a transfer for the long term when they brought in Danny Ings from Burnley on a free transfer.
The club were later made to pay a hefty fee as training compensation to the newly promoted Premier League outfit. However, this seemed like money well spent by Brendan Rodgers sinceIngs had proved himself in different levels of English football. The last 12 months, though, has been a turbulent period at Anfield and it was also the same personally for the player. The departure of Rodgers coupled with the arrival of Jurgen Klopp has completely altered his position within the squad
It has been quite clear from the first day that the likes of Daniel Sturridge and Divock Origi would be the first choice strikers under Klopp.Ings was realistically fighting for a place as the reserve striker, but even that has been put into doubt by the failure of the club to sell Christian Benteke. Klopp certainly does not seem to fancy the player who came from Aston Villa only recently. However, Liverpool are unable to find a buyer at their asking price of more than £ 20 million. Hence, it looks likeIngs may stay at the club unable to get any game time whatsoever in the summer.

Many footballers decide to retire early and one such instance is Daniel Agger.
He has decided to retire at the age of 31, having played last as defender of the Liverpool team. He made his announcement of the childhood club that he was part of in Copenhagen. Though many fans might be surprised by the decision, he has stated that it is the right decision that he has taken. The last contract that he was on was with Brondby. The contract expired this season and he has decided not to renew the same with this club or any other football, thus ending an international playing career.
If you follow his football playing career, he has had 232 appearances for the Liverpool club. The total number of goals that he has scored is about 14. He signed up for Brondby from the month of January in 2006. With his retirement announcement, there have been several souvenirs and shirts of his association launched whose publicity has been made through the social media channels, keeping his fans informed about the launch and how to get their hands on the same. He had received offers from different European and Premier League teams.
However, he has turned down these offers as he feels that the effects are physically grueling for him. He also revealed that he felt that the manager at Liverpool did not appreciate his contributions as much. It might have been a trigger that made him think about continuing his playing career. It is also true that international games are demanding on players and those who have reached their thirties start to feel the pressure, especially when they have spent nearly two decades on the field. Fans hope that Agger will still continue to contribute to European football and provide inspiration to others.
Vice Captain of Danish outfit, Brondby IF, Daniel Agger led his team to another defeat in recent string of matches.
The loss was the third one in the last five games played by the 10-time Superligaen champions. The former Liverpool player captained the team in the absence of Thomas Kahlenberg who is the team’s captain.
The game proved to be a disappointing one for Brondby who had hoped for a draw in the encounter in the away match. Playing third placed Aalborg BK was a tough one for the currently struggling side. In the last five games, they won the game against Odense BK by a lone goal though Agger missed
it as the centre back was facing yellow card suspension; they lost the next two games against Kobenhavn (FC Copenhagen) by 2-0 in the Superligaen and 1-0 to the same side in the DBU Pokalen; they returned to victory in the next Superligaen encounter against Aarhus GF with a 2-1 win last two Sundays ago then lost this Sunday’s game against Aalborg BK by 3-0.
