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.

Daniel Agger was involved in an on-field row with his own goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel in their international friendly match against Scotland.
Agger wrongly judges the pace of a ball when passing back the ball to his goalkeeper allowing Scotland’s Ritchie to chip in and scored the only goal of the match in the 8th minute.
Kasper Schmeichel was not really pleased with the way the ball has been played, and Daniel Agger did not want to take responsibility for his mistake. Both players were shouting at each other and ultimately calmed down to continue the game.
Scotland’s Shaun Maloney could have made it 2-0 but this time, Kasper Schmeichel was ready, and he tipped the 25-yard shot over the bar to prevent his team from going further behind.
Daniel Agger, former Livepool defender, also make amends for his mistake in the first half by putting in a great performance for the rest of the game. The player who played 9 seasons in the Premier League with Liverpool currently plays in the Danish league with Brondby. He was signed in January 2006 from Brondby and managed to make 232 appearances for the English sides. He was quite prolific as well for a defender and scored 14 goals for Liverpool. Read more »
It’s been over a year since Daniel Agger made his return to the Danish club Brøndby IF, this is the same club where he performed during his youth and after he made his way out of Liverpool, Agger decided to head back to Brøndby IF. Even though the Danish defender had to take a significant pay cut, Agger was willing to do it as he just wanted to make a return to the club that helped him out during the earlier stages of his career.
Daniel Agger is a consister starter for Brøndby IF and it seems like his performances have attracted the interest of Italy’s Lazio as the Serie A team is rumored to be interested in signing Agger in the winter transfer window.
According to rumors, Lazio have already attempted to make an approach and launch an offer for Daniel Agger but it seems hard to believe that the Danish player is even interested in making a move away from Brøndby IF which he has established a very good relationship with and he has stated on numerous occasions his desire to retire and help them out in their competitions.
Lazio is also interested in signing Douglas from Dnipro but Daniel Agger is a cheaper option and a player who is very experienced which can help out the Italian club in their quest of sealing a top spot in the Serie A. Read more »
