There’s no football atmosphere like the one at Anfield according to former Liverpool defender Daniel Agger. The Dane made this known while speaking to Liverpoolfc.com shortly after the friendly match between Liverpool Legends and Barcelona Legends at the end of last month.
Ex-Denmark national team central defender Daniel Agger joined several other former Liverpool players for the friendly clash with Barcelona Legends at Anfield during the March international break. Agger could not prevent the Liverpool legends from losing to their opponents despite the fact that they took the lead in the first half.
Liverpool Legends scored the first goal of the game through a Steven Gerrard penalty in the first half and they were heading for a halftime lead before Giovanni levelled proceedings for Barcelona Legends with a minute of the first half left to play. Barcelona Legends were able to go into the break on level terms having trailed into the latter stages of the first half. The goal from Giovanni for the Barcelona Legends gave the team the platform needed to win the game thanks to the second half penalty from Brazilian star Rivaldo. He scored the winning goal from 12 yards after the impressive Giovanni was fouled in the box by Phil Babbs.
Daniel Agger shared the pitch with a lot of former Liverpool players including Aston Villa boss and former Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard, Jamie Carragher, Dutchman Dirk Kuyt, Luis Enrique, Salif Diao, Jerzy Dudek, Sami Hyypia, Luis Garcia and Sander Westerveld.
