Liverpool defender Daniel Agger is confident his side will soon start winning trophies, but feels that they need to strengthen their squad over the summer.

The Merseyside club have been without Champions League football for three successive seasons, and look highly unlikely to gatecrash into the top-four this term following their disappointing 3-1 defeat to Southampton last week.

The Anfield club currently occupy the seventh slot in the table – a massive nine points behind fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur with just eight more games left for them to reverse the situation.

For now, they are only competing in the Premier League, having crashed out of both the FA Cup and the Capital One Cup, and also saw their Europa League campaign brought to a halt by Zenit St Petersburg last month.

It means that Brendan Rodgers, who left Swansea City to take up the Liverpool job last year, will end up without a trophy in his debut season with the Reds.

Nonetheless, Agger is optimistic that it is only a matter of time before his team goes through a trophy-winning spree.

The Denmark International, though, observed that they need to land in some quality players during the summer. That, and a little bit stability will make Liverpool a force to be reckoned with next season, according to Agger.

He told the reporters: “It is a club that will have trophies, I think it goes without saying.

“I believe it will come, of course. It will not be this year, because we are changing the style of play as we have not got the results we would have wanted but we have played well.

“There have been a few worries and it has something to do with stability and we must also have a bigger squad."

The 28-year-old’s career has been marred by injuries since he made a £6 million pound switch from Brondby to Liverpool back in 2006.

However, the defender has represented the Reds in 29 league fixtures so far this season – an improvement he attributes to his manager and the coaching staff.

He continued by saying: “For me it’s about being fit and I’ve been the fittest in years.

“I have not missed a game because of an injury and I think that is the first time in my career. Brendan Rodgers is undoubtedly the reason I have played all the matches without injuries this year and I cannot be anything but pleased.

“I must give the new coaching team great credit for it, but especially the new manager gets the greatest credit for this."
