Jamie Carragher Talks About Shaqiri’s Potential

Jamie Carragher, whose full name is James Lee Duncan Carragher, born about 1978, might have retired from the football fields, but he continues to be an authority figure in the same field and gives professional insights and views of the players and how teams should be formed in order to impact games and wins.

The recent sign up of Xherdan Shaqiri by Liverpool who paid £12m for the player is being seen as a good bargain deal. As per Jamie, Xherdan has stood out as per the performances that he gave in the last two games. These games that he played for Liverpool showcase that the team was right about picking him up. He does have to work harder, however, to convince Jurgen Klopp who is the manager of the team.

Agger on Salah

Daniel Agger said that he is amazed at how good Mohamed Salah become and he is arguably one of the best strikers in the world at the moment. The former Liverpool defender said that he is a nightmare for all defenders and that he would not have liked to face him on a football pitch.

He said that the Egyptian international is quick on the ball and that he is always ready to strike and this makes it difficult to mark for any defender.

AUSTRALIA DRAW DENMARK TO SETUP EPIC LAST ROUND OF GAMES

Australia have just played a 1-1 draw against Denmark to set up an epic final round of games at the FIFA 2018 World Cup. Tottenham Hotspur’s Christian Eriksen scored a stunner early in the fixture to send the Danes on top. However, Mile Jedinak converted a penalty kick with the help of VAR to ensure both sides share the spoils.

This means that Australia still have a chance going into the final round of games. If they get result against Peru, they will have four points and stand a chance to move ahead if France defeat Denmark. The Socceroos missed their chances of burying the game as Daniel Arzani and Matthew Leckie wasted their efforts in the final minutes of the game.

AGGER EXPLAINS WHY HE RETIRED EARLY

Former Liverpool defender Daniel Agger has given insights as to why he retired from football aged just 31 years old.


Daniel Agger has explained that he retired from football after being forced to take painkillers for years.

The retired Danish professional footballer and tattoo artist who played as a central defender for Brondby, Liverpool and captained the Denmark national team was named the 2007 and 2012 Danish footballer of the year.

He represented his nation, Denmark at the 2010 FIFA World Cup and also at the UEFA Euro 2012, captaining his country at the latter.

The Danish defender spent eight years at Liverpool from 2006 to 2014 before heading back to his first club Brondby after falling out with then boss Brendan Rodgers.

The 32-year-old has revealed how collapsing on the pitch caused him to finally give the game up.

The Sun report that Agger was heading to FC Copenhagen on the Brondby team bus when a mixture of arthritis pills and a caffeine drink meant he failed to remember any of the first half. (more…)

LIVERPOOL DESPERATE TO FIX DEFENCE

Premier League side Liverpool remain desperate to fix the defence that slowed the team down last term.


Klopp had more in and delivered so much hope within a short time. After failures at two finals, the German promised more in the new season.

The team started banging hot but different loopholes were revealed in time. The club chose to patch it up and it negated all the recent beautiful strides. Before Sadio Mane went for the African Nations Cup, there was an opportunity to add depth. The Alberto Moreno issue could have been better handled and James Milner freed to add cushion when needed. Yes, the injury situation affected many things but better man management and planning could have ensured a better finish.

With the Champions League and local commitments in play, the Reds are hoping to get a full back and a top central defender. Joel Matip and DevjanLovren are decent already but the team needs more. Like former skipper Daniel Agger recently said, Matip has quickly adapted since joining the side but he needs to maintain consistency for each game. (more…)

Jurgen Klopp comments on West Ham United

Jurgen Klopp says that Liverpool with its annihilation of West Ham United has shown to everyone that they can soak the pressure as well as any other team playing in the top flight.


Because of the waste of a penalty by Liverpool in the previous match, the critics were starting to doubt if the Reds had got the temperament to play under intense pressure situations.

But, Klopp reckons whatever doubts that were there would have gone out of the window now after an absolutely clinical performance by the Merseyside club at the Olympic Stadium.

As per Klopp, he himself never had any doubts over the temperament of his players because his players have earned more than 70 points this season and they couldn’t have earned so many points without playing some fantastic Football.

Klopp opines that pressure is something one can’t get away from. It will always be there in life, but, what one must do is to overlook the negative aspects of pressure and just exploit the positive aspects of it which his players did in the West Ham game. (more…)
