Liverpool defender Daniel Agger says he only sees a future for himself at Anfield if he is given more chances to perform on the pitch.

The Danish international has struggled to hold down a regular first team place since the arrival of Martin Skrtel last season, and has even found himself competing with veteran defender Sami Hyypia this season.

Negotiations over Agger’s contract have already broken down and now Agger has revealed his frustration at not getting enough action under Rafa Benitez.

“Let me be honest and admit that, if I don’t play, then it’s untenable and it can’t go on like that,” said the 24-year-old.

“It’s never fun as a footballer when you don’t play every time. That’s no secret. But that’s my situation in the club right now; that he (Benitez) won’t let me play. That’s not my decision. The question now is whether this is the right thing for me, because I would like to play some football. But for now I have chosen to give it some time and give it a chance and fight for my spot in the team. I feel I’m good enough. For the same reason it’s annoying that I don’t play.I’ll wait for the chance and then I will prove that I’m good enough. I’ll show them – no doubt about that.”

Agger is able to use the Webster Ruling this summer to buy out the rest of his contract from Liverpool FC and become a free agent.
