Agger: There’s “something special” happening

Daniel Agger says there’s a feeling that “something special” is about to happen at Liverpool, and that’s why he’s agreed a new deal with the club.

The Danish international defender, signed from Brondby in 2006, recently ended months of negotiations by agreeing to a new contract that will see him stay at Anfield until 2014 on a reported £55,000 a week.

He says he has followed in the footsteps of Dirk Kuyt and Steven Gerrard by signing new contracts because he wants to be part of Liverpool’s imminent success.

He said, “I’ve agreed a contract, the manager has agreed a new contract, Steven Gerrard, Dirk Kuyt and some other players are all agreeing contracts so I think this shows you that within the club there is a real sense that we are building towards something special. Everyone wants to be successful, everyone wants to be part of it. If you don’t, then I think you’re making a big mistake. There is a lot that we should be proud of this season and we are.”
