Daniel Agger has just announced his retirement from football after his two year spell at home club Brondby. 

The former Liverpool defender from 2006-14 and Denmark captain retired saying he was proud of his career, and it sounds like it was due to all his injuries. 

I always liked him and wish him the best.

I agree mate. Always a top lad, and with Skrts helped form one of our best back lines since Henchoz and Hyppia. Was totes ace when I bumped into him at Anfield earlier in the year, too.
All the best for the future Dagger!!
YNWA. Always!!!

When he was fit he was one of the most natural-looking defenders I’ve seen, so composed with the ball at his feet and able to turn defence into attack with ease. I know his teammates appreciated the fact that he rarely panicked and that calmness in defence is what we’ve missed since his departure. He had a wicked left foot and the goals he did score tended to be scorchers. I will forever remember Agger for his brutal challenge on Torres on their first meeting after he left for Chelsea. It was as if Agger was saying this is what you get for turning your back on Liverpool. I don’t think Agger ever really wanted to leave Liverpool, he openly admitted he loved everything about the club, but at the end of his time with us… Read more »
