Liverpool Rocked As Key Defender Ready to Consider Anfield Exit

Dane has been tracked by Barca for some time now.

Out-of-favour Liverpool defender Daniel Agger has admitted for the very first time that he could leave Anfield when the winter transfer window opens again for business in the new year, according to reports in the Daily Telegraph.

The Denmark international has barely featured for the Merseyside giants so far this season, despite Reds head coach Brendan Rodgers having recently changed the shape of his back line by playing with three centre backs.

Even so, the Liverpool vice-captain has so far played in just six matches in total under the Northern Irishman, five of which came in the Premier League, and now Agger says that if he does not win his place back in the first team by the turn of the year, then he will consider departing Merseyside for a new team.

“If I don’t play, and if the manager doesn’t think I am good enough, that could make me leave Liverpool,” said Agger.

“I’m here to play football, nothing else. So if I don’t play football, then I don’t want to be here any more.”

Liverpool rejected an offer of £14.6 million from Spanish champions FC Barcelona for the 28-year-old during the recent summer transfer window, and the central defender had insisted then that he had no interest whatsoever in moving to Camp Nou, claiming that he only wanted to play for the Merseysiders.

The popular Dane has been at the club since January 2006, when he joined the Reds from Bronby for just £6m.
