Liverpool Star Claims Rodgers Doesn’t Think He’s Good Enough And Is Considering His Options

Posted by

Agger could be on his way out of Anfield after a season of frustration.

Defender Daniel Agger could leave Liverpool this summer after claiming that manager Brendan Rodgers doesn’t think that he is good enough.

Despite being the vice-captain at Anfield, Agger has found first team opportunities difficult to come by in 2013/14, with Martin Skrtel and Mamadou Sakho preferred ahead of the Dane by Rodgers.

The 29-year-old is now thinking about other possibilities in his career and could well leave Merseyside after eight-and-a-half years with the club.

“I don’t know [about my future]. That’s up to the manager. I can’t go and put myself on the team sheet,” Agger was quoted by the Metro.

“It definitely wasn’t great to be left out, but I don’t make the decisions.

“I think it is because the manager doesn’t think that I’m good enough.”

Agger’s national team boss Morten Olsen has also revealed that Rodgers’ lack of faith in the centre-back has left him frustrated.

“Of course he should be playing,” Olsen was quoted by Inside Futbol.

“Otherwise, I also believe we will have a frustrated and irritated captain.

“I hope he makes the right choice.”

Agger joined the Merseysiders from Brondby in January 2006 for £6m and has since gone onto make 232 appearances for the club, although only 23 of those have come this term.

The Denmark skipper also has 62 caps for his country and 10 goals.
