Agger Stuns Reds Faithful

Daniel Agger has shocked the Liverpool faithful by admitting that he could be forced to leave the Reds in January.

Agger’s status as a cult hero on the Kop was augmented during recent transfer windows, when he was linked to moves to Manchester City and Barcelona.

To the first set of rumours, he answered with a YNWA tattoo inked across his knuckles, and to the second, he accepted the vice-captaincy at Anfield.

The season started well enough for the classy ball-playing Danish international defender.

He helped Liverpool keep three clean sheets in their first three games of the Premier League campaign alongside Kolo Toure.

But yet again, injuries caught up with him. And in his absence, manager Brendan Rodgers has crafted a three-man defensive cordon of real mettle, comprised of surprise star Toure, rejuvenated Martin Skrtel and hulking beast Mamadou Sakho.

Agger has been unable to win his way back into the starting line-up, and has now suggested that he is losing patience with the status quo.

"If I don’t play, and if the manager doesn’t think I am good enough, that could make me leave Liverpool,” he reportedly said on Danish television, as quoted by the Daily Telegraph.

“I'm here to play football, nothing else.

“So if I don’t play football, then I don’t want to be here anymore."

At his best, there are few more cultured stoppers than Agger. But with Liverpool flying high at the moment, he faces a struggle to convince Rodgers to part with his winning formula.
