Daniel Agger unsure if he will stay at Liverpool for next season

Published 1 Comments

Daniel Agger has admitted that he doesn't know if he will still be at Liverpool next season, with the defender also stating that he does not believe that manager Brendan Rodgers thinks he is good enough.

Danish centre-back Agger has been a first-team regular at Anfield for many years since arriving on Merseyside from Brondby back in 2006, yet he has seen his influence decline somewhat in recent months.

Although he did still make 20 appearances for Liverpool during an eventful 2013/14 Premier League campaign, it is clear that Agger is no longer regarded as an automatic first choice - something the 29-year-old is obviously concerned about.

"I don't know," Agger told the Danish media when asked if he would still be at Liverpool next season in an interview that was quoted by The Daily Mirror.

"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."

If Agger were indeed to look to leave Liverpool this summer, it appears that he would have a willing suitor in former Reds boss Rafael Benitez.

Reports suggest that the Spaniard's current employers - Serie A outfit Napoli - have Agger at the top of their wishlist, with Benitez keen to reunite with the player he initially brought to the Premier League almost a decade agp.

Deciding whether or not to let Agger depart and seek further opportunities is likely to be a tricky decision for Rodgers.

Although major upgrades to the squad are anticipated during the next transfer window, Agger is a very experienced figure whose authoritative presence could be sorely missed.
