Daniel Agger backed for Liverpool vice-captaincy

Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler has given his vote to defender Daniel Agger to take over as the Reds’ new vice-captain from the 2013/14 campaign.


Jamie Carragher had filled the position, behind skipper Steven Gerrard, until his retirement at the end of last season.

Now Brendan Rodgers must decide who is to step in and lead the team when Gerrard is not available.

Fowler believes the 6ft 3inch Danish international possesses the perfect attributes as a player and a person to fill the vacancy.

“There are a few players that we could opt for,” Fowler told the club’s official website.

“I know the website has recently done a vote and I think they have all voted for Daniel Agger. It probably makes sense, to be honest, so I’d probably opt for him. He’s a great player.

“When I re-signed, he actually signed the day before me. I would say that would probably not be a bad choice.”

Agger enjoyed his most productive season with Liverpool yet during the 2012/13 campaign, playing in all but four league games.

Agger has made 209 appearances overall for the Reds since his 2006 switch from Brondby, scoring 12 times.
