Daniel Agger, the former defender of Liverpool disclosed that the challenge given to him from Noh Alam Shah of Singapore was the beginning of his injury problems that forced him to retire from the game of football and that so at the age of 31 years only.

Daniel was on the pitch against the side of Singapore and they went in for a ball which was high in the 78th minute against Singapore’s Alam Shah before getting crashed to the ground in excruciating pain. As a result of the fall he was diagnosed with an injury at back and ultimately he underwent surgery for the same and he was ruled out till the month of October in that year.
In spite of making 153 appearances immediately after making a return from that surgery, Daniel has now revealed that after that he never felt the same.
