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 Writes Goodbye Letter

A few days ago Daniel Agger made his way out of Liverpool and joined his childhood club Brondby on a 2 year contract but after having spent 9 season performing with the Premier League club; it wasn’t an easy exit for Agger as he wrote a goodbye letter which explained just how much of an impact Liverpool has made in his life not only inside the pitch but outside of it as well.

“Liverpool has been such a big part of my life and my family’s lives for so long that leaving is extremely difficult. I’ll start by saying that Liverpool fans constantly keep surprising me. Since the news broke about the transfer, I have received so many positive messages and well-wishing for the future and not just from supporters in Liverpool but across the world. “My family and I have always felt your backing; it is something unique to this football club, this city and our supporters. It’s been a privilege to have represented this club and I’m forever thankful for everything I have learnt during my time here.

The open letter says: “When I joined this great club, I came here as a 21 year old boy with a lot to learn. Liverpool has helped me grow up and shape me into the man I am today’’

Along with Steven Gerrard, Daniel Agger is another player of Liverpool that throughout the years has received praise and applause from supporters of the English club and fans have displayed their emotions through social media saying messages like: ‘’You will be missed’’ and things of that nature.

Daniel Agger is a qualified tattoo artist and a few years ago he combined the passion of playing football with tattoo and the Danish player wrote on the knuckles in his hand, the letters: ‘’YNWA’’ which is the name of Liverpool’s hugely popular anthem ‘’You’ll Never Walk Alone’’.

Strootman Attracts Attention Despite Injury

As.Roma’s Kevin Strootman sustained an injury during a Serie A match for his club as they locked horns against Napoli in March which forced him to be out of action and unable to play the remainder of the season as well as having to miss out from the 2014 World Cup.

Despite suffering such a heavy injury and being out of form for a significantly long period of time the Dutch midfielder still is attracting the eyes of clubs around Europe and the new coach of Manchester United, Louis van Gaal is believed to be preparing an offer in the region of €25 million for his services.

Kevin Strootman will undergo a rehabilitation program that is scheduled to conclude and have the midfielder fully recovered in December where Manchester United is expected to launch an offer for the player of As.Roma.

While Strootman is a performer who might be seeing his way out of As.Roma, Ashley Cole is one of the latest high profile players who has joined the Italian club after the English defender spent 8 years playing at Stamford Bridge in Chelsea, he opted to finish the last few seasons of his career playing in Italy.

Ashley Cole’s contract with Chelsea expired on June and this allowed As.Roma on swooping in for the veteran defender who arrived as a free agent and will be remaining with his new club for 2 years.

‘’When I heard I had the chance to come to a big club in Italy it was something I wanted to do. Clubs abroad don’t come in for English players as much as people think. I’ve never been out of London so this is a big opportunity for me to try a different language, a different culture and a different way of living’’ Ashley Cole told reporters during his first press conference as a player of As.Roma.

CHAMPIONS LEAGUE TARGET

Liverpool defender Kolo Toure has stated that the target of the club is to win the Champions league, which is something that they did in 2005. Liverpool are one of the prestigious clubs in this tournament having won it an illustrious five times in their history. However, they have been unable to play in this competition after having failed to finish in the top four for the last four years. The signing of players like Kolo Toure in the summer appears to have worked in favour of Liverpool, as they are currently second in the table with the Christmas fixtures around the corner.

Touré is an experienced player in both Premier league and Champions league after having experienced it with Arsenal and Manchester City. He is confident that Liverpool can qualify for the top four this season, while their target will be to win the competition itself. The Ivory Coast international missed out on the opportunity to lift the trophy when he was at Arsenal, as his team lost in the final to Barcelona in 2006. He is keen to win this trophy for the first time in his career and he has revealed that the move to Liverpool was made with this thought in mind.

“That’s why I came to Liverpool, I knew I would have the chance to play the Champions League again. We have started well in our target to go as far as we can and then try and win this trophy. The Champions League is an amazing tournament to play in, and to be able to play that again with Liverpool will be fantastic. Honestly, for me, I played a final with Arsenal against Barcelona, I was 15 mins from the title,” said Toure.

The defender has been a first-team regular for Brendan Rodgers after having signed on a free transfer.

BARCA STILL KEEN

Barcelona is considered to be one of the best clubs in the world maybe even the best, but if there is a position that they have always been struggling its without doubt in the defensive area. Puyol is suffering from injuries that have kept him unable to play and even when he is fit to play his age is taking a toll on him as he is not the same player he used to be some years ago.
Pique is an unmovable player for Tata Martino but the rest of the defensive positions of the squad are being filled by the youngsters Montoya and Bartra.  The defensive duo have been making consistent performances for Barcelona in La Liga but there is doubt that they can hold their own when the bigger and tougher matches arrive.
This is why the Catalan club has been in search of a defender that can solve some of their problems and Daniel Agger was one of their targets as the Danish defender said that he was tempted to make a move but ultimately rejected the offer.
“I think you are always tempted when stuff like that happens. You would not be human not to be but I keep to my principles’’.

“If I have a contract here for two or three years and the club want me to stay, then I stay with them because, when I signed that deal, that’s what I told them – that I’d be here for four years. I can’t just turn around and say I don’t want to be here anymore. Agger told The Times.
Agger is not a regular player for Brendan Rodgers as he has tough competition of players such as: Martin Skrtel, Mamadou Sakho and Kolo Toure all being switched out and rotate on a number of matches.
