Big Dane ignores Barca interest.
Liverpool defender Daniel Agger has reaffirmed his desire to stay with the club despite interest from Spanish giants Barcelona, Sky Sports reports.
The 28-year-old, who has been with The Reds since 2006, is under contract with the club until 2016 and has announced his desire to stay and see out the length of his contract despite reported interest from Barcelona who are seeking a replacement for the ageing Carles Puyol.
“I still have three years left and I intend to fulfil them,” he said. “There are always rumours, but who is creating them? I don’t know,” he said.
“It is not a bad thing to be linked with top clubs but you have to take 70% of the speculation off and then you have the reality.”
The news will come as music to the ears of Brendan Rodgers who is desperately seeking defensive reinforcements himself with the impending retirement of club stalwart, Jamie Carragher.
And Agger was also quick to praise his defensive partner who has just two more games to go before hanging up his boots.
“Jamie speaks for himself. To be at that level for that long, it’s not impossible but really close.”
“You learn from every single player you play with in training. If you want to be the best you have to learn from the best.”
Agger has made 39 appearances this term, scoring three times.
