"Daniel is a top player, it’s easy to play with him because, like I said, he’s a top quality player and the understanding between me and him is very good on the pitch and that’s very important" - Martin Škrtel

He could go to any team and possibly win trophies, but he chooses to go back to Brondby (the team he started his career with) and that’s Daniel Agger summed up for you. The man who rejected City, Barcelona, Milan when Liverpool didn’t have Champions League. His loyalty knows no bounds.

His skill might be replaced, but his legacy will forever hold its own. A true legend. And above that a great, great man. Though it hurts me to no end to see this happen, I do wish him all the luck in the world because he deserves that and then some more. And I hope and pray that he can be happy there.

Thank you for sticking with us during the bad times, thank you for being our defensive rock, thank you for teaching others what loyalty is all about, thank you for being our vice-captain and captain, thank you for choosing Liverpool.

Thank you for being our Dagger.


In 2010, you quarreled on the field with Santos’s coach after he stopped you taking a penalty. Did that change you?

It was one of the worst moments of my life because I knew I was wrong. After the match I apologized to the coach. But what shook me most was arriving home and finding my mum crying. She said she watched it on TV and that wasn’t the son she had raised. I cried all night, I didn’t sleep. It made me grow into a man. I think that was my worst moment in football because it involved the whole family. My dad was ill then, in bed, and my mum said he’d always fought for me.


Someone stop Petr Cech, he’s out of control

Together we stand,
together we fall,

together we’re winners,
and winners take all.
