Agger bags another award

Liverpool’s promising central defensive January signing, Daniel Agger has been crowned Young Player of the Year back home in Denmark.

Out of the young players in the country, Agger was voted the best despite him not playing many games over the last few months due to lack of fitness.

In both 2004 and 2005 he was named Young Player of the Year by the Danish equivalent of the PFA.

The central defender appears to be pulling in the praises of many and looks set to have a glorious future at Anfield. Last week Finnish defender Sami Hyypia said, “He looks a very talented player who has done really well. It is not easy for someone of such a young age to come to a top club.

“His debut came in the Birmingham game against Chris Sutton and Emile Heskey, which is by no means the easiest strike partnership to handle.

“But he coped well enough. He also did well against Manchester City and was better again against Newcastle.

“I think those three games showed him enough of what The Premiership is about. He is a clever guy and knows where he will have to improve his game to adapt to the Premiership.”
