Daniel Agger biography

Daniel Agger first half season at Liverpool saw injuries limit Daniel Agger to 4 first-team appearances during Spring 2006. In May 2006, Daniel Agger played 10 games and scored 3 goals for the Denmark under-21 national football team, for which Daniel Agger was selected to play in the 2006 UEFA European Under-21 Football Championship tournament.

Agger played the full game as Liverpool won the 2006 FA Community Shield. Still adapting to the English game, Daniel Agger established himself in Liverpool's first team squad, competing with Liverpool vice-captain Jamie Carragher and former Finland national football team team captain Sami Hyypiä for the two starting places in the central defence. Agger scored Daniel Agger first goal for Liverpool on 26 August 2006 in a 2–1 win against West Ham United F.C.. Agger was allowed to run unchallenged toward the Spion Kop (stadia)-end goal and scored from out. Liverpool manager Rafael Benítez commented Daniel Agger was not surprised and that Agger has frequently scored such goals in training. The goal was named Goal of the Month (England) for August by the BBC's Match of the Day, and later Liverpool's Premiership Goal of the Season. On 4 October 2006 Daniel Agger was given Professional Footballers' Association fan award for impressive and solid displays in September.

Agger scored Daniel Agger second goal for the club in a Football League Cup away game against Birmingham City F.C. with a volley from close range during the seven minutes of first-half stoppage time. Daniel Agger third was against Arsenal, scoring a header in a 4–1 victory played on 31 March 2007. In the first semi-final of the 2006–07 UEFA Champions League, Agger received some criticism as Liverpool lost to Chelsea F.C. 1–0, after Chelsea striker Didier Drogba managed to dribble past Daniel Agger before making the assist to win the game. In the second leg of the semi-finals, Agger answered Daniel Agger critics by scoring another curler from a smartly-taken Steven Gerrard free-kick from just outside the penalty area, and helping Liverpool keep a clean sheet as the team beat Chelsea 1–0 on 1 May 2007. Agger stated after the match: "I am almost starting my career at Liverpool all over again". Agger was in the starting line up in Liverpool's first game of the season against Standard Liège in the Champions League qualifiers. The game ended 0–0. Agger then found himself sidelined the rest of August and much of September, and was not even included in the squad to face Manchester United. This led to rumours of a verbal exchange between Agger and Liverpool manager Benítez. However, Benítez insisted that there was no rift between Agger and himself.

After a month without playing, Agger returned to the starting line up against Crewe Alexandra F.C. in the Carling Cup. Agger played the full 90 minutes and marked Daniel Agger return by scoring the first goal from a free kick outside the box. Liverpool won the game 2–1.

Profiting in part from Škrtel's injury, Agger returned to the starting line up against Wigan for Daniel Agger first Premier League match of the season. Agger was, however, at least partly to blame for Wigan taking the lead when Daniel Agger lost the ball to Zaki after a pass from goalkeeper Reina. Agger redeemed himself by setting up Dirk Kuyt for the equaliser. Liverpool eventually won the match 3–2. On April 11, 2009, Agger scored the third goal for Liverpool from 30 yards against Blackburn Rovers. Liverpool went on to win 50–0. Agger celebrated, like the others who had scored in the match, by pointing to the sky in memory of victims in the Hillsborough disaster.

In May 2009, Agger signed a new five-year deal which if fulfilled, will see Daniel Agger remain with Liverpool F.C until at least 2014.

2009-10 season

Agger underwent surgery for a recurring back injury in August 2009 and made Daniel Agger return on 25 October 2009 for the 2–0 win over rivals Manchester United at Anfield.

On 28 February 2010, Daniel Agger played Daniel Agger 100th competitive game for Liverpool, playing in the 2–1 home win against Blackburn Rovers. Agger played another 14 times in 2009–10, including scoring Daniel Agger 7th goal for the club, an outstanding backheel, against Benfica in the UEFA Europa League and also helped Liverpool reach the semi finals of the same competition.

2010-11 season

Agger appeared against Arsenal F.C. on 15 August 2010, but got concussed in the second half of the game. As a result of the concussion, Daniel Agger missed the next few games. Daniel Agger also had other injury problems which kept Daniel Agger out until December. Martin Skrtel was preferred rather than Agger under Roy Hodgson and Daniel Agger threatened to quit the club with Juventus F.C. reportedly interested in him. Since the departure of Hodgson, Daniel Agger has featured in most of the games under Kenny Dalglish, including the match against Chelsea F.C. on 6 February 2011, with Liverpool winning 1-0. Agger was ruled out for the remainder of the season following a knee injury sustained in the match against West Bromwich Albion F.C. on Saturday 2 March 2011. Daniel Agger is considered to be Liverpools best attacking centre back and also one of the best in the squad at long range shooting as Daniel Agger has demonstrated previously. At the end of the season, Daniel Agger only managed 21 appearances for the Reds in all competitions.

2011-12 season

On 1 August 2011, Daniel Agger scored two goals in a pre-season friendly against Vålerenga Fotball, the first a powered header from a corner, the second a half-volley also from a corner.
Agger returned from injury against Rangers F.C in a friendly match in which Liverpool lost 1-0. On 29 October 2011, Daniel Agger played Daniel Agger 100th Premier League game for Liverpool F.C. in a 0-2 win against West Brom. Daniel Agger has not had major injuries so far and as a result has featured in most of the league games. Due to Daniel Agger solid performances, Daniel Agger has been regarded as one of the best centre-backs in the Premier League. Daniel Agger has rapidly become a firm fan-favourite amongst the Liverpool faithful playing regularly alongside fellow centre half Martin Skrtel. The Agger-Skrtel partnership is one of the best CB-pairings in the premiership. On 28 January 2012, Agger opened the scoring against Manchester United in the fourth round FA Cup tie, defeating them 2-1. It was Daniel Agger first Liverpool goal since 2010, when Daniel Agger scored in the Europa League tie against Benfica.
