Liverpool fans react to Daniel Agger’s departure

Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to discuss Daniel Agger’s departure from the club after he sealed a return to his former club Brondby on Saturday.

Agger leaves Anfield after eight years and 232 appearances for the club. He scored 14 goals in that time and won the hearts of many fans with his devotion to the club.

Even upon his exit this weekend, Agger revealed, “I wouldn’t leave here to go anywhere else and that has been proven by my actions in recent seasons – I have turned down many offers to move to other Premier League and European clubs.”

It is understood the Reds will receive around £3 million from Brondby for Agger, who was linked with a move to both Manchester City and Barcelona only last summer.

A recurrent back problem has caused Agger’s career to slip, struggling to remain part of Liverpool’s first team as Brendan Rodgers’ side went from strength to strength.

The arrivals of Mamadou Sakho from Paris Saint-Germain last summer and Dejan Lovren this year had further made game time opportunities tougher for the 29-year-old.

Nevertheless, Agger was a popular figure at Liverpool throughout his stay, absorbing himself into the passion and culture of the city. For that reason, he will be sorely missed.
