I Love Daniel Agger

Posts filed under Virgil Van Dijk


Liverpool recently played a friendly against the AC Milan legends in a repeat of the 2005 finals of the Champions League at Anfield as part of a charity match. The game ended 3-2 in favour of the Reds as Steven Gerard turn back the years to score a late winner for his team.

One player that Liverpool fans loved for his warrior mentality and effort during his time at the club was Daniel Agger. The 34-year-old played 242 games for the Reds and was widely applauded by the home support during the game.


Former Liverpool defender Daniel Agger is confident that his former club can continue with their impressive form this season that has already made them a title contender.

Unlike last season, the Reds have made a head start to the Premier League campaign this year, sitting comfortably in fourth place after just eight matches so far. The Reds who reached two cup finals last campaign are much of a better squad this season and are currently challenging for every silver.

The 0-0 draw with Manchester United was the second time this campaign that Jürgen Klopp’s men have failed to score in all competition. It is this startling performance that has drawn the attention of their former defender Agger who says he has high hopes for this Liverpool team this season.

Here is what the former Liverpool told Liverpool.com:

“It’s going well so far. To be honest, I have some expectations this year, especially after last year. Jürgen is looking good for the club; I think he’s doing well. He has some great ideas and the way he talks to the media, everything, I like.”s (more…)

Agger admires Klopp

Daniel Agger has revealed that he is a great admirer of Jurgen Klopp and said that he is the right man for the Anfield side.

He stated that he is happy with the way Liverpool is progressing and believes that the manager is already having a real impact on the team.

Daniel Agger said that Klopp has made an excellent start to his Liverpool career and believes that there is still a lot more to come.

He said that he has always been an admirer of the German manager during his time at Borussia Dortmund and believes that he will bring the same kind of professionalism to Liverpool. Agger said that Liverpool is a big club in England and has been for a long time in the shadows of other competitors.

He believes that Jurgen Klopp has the necessary experience to manage a club of this side and believes that he also has the charisma to lead the club. (more…)

Daniel Agger Happy To Retire Early

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 fights with Kasper Schmeichel after mistakes that gave Scotland the lead

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. (more…)
