Former Liverpool centre-back Daniel Agger has displayed his love for the club is still strong with his latest tattoo.

The Danish stalwart quickly became a fan favourite at Anfield thanks to his no-nonsense defensive ability, quality ball control, passing range and lethal left foot that produced many a wonder strike.

Agger retired from professional football in June of this year after his Brondby contract expired, and moved on to pursue one of his other passions, tattooing. 

His own tattoos are very expressive, including one that outlines his love for Liverpool, as he has 'YNWA' tattooed on his knuckles.

However, this latest tattoo takes the Dane's love for the Merseyside giants to another level, as he has recently inked two liver birds on his fingers.

Tattooing is a very clear passion for Agger, who is virtually covered in tattoos at this stage in his life.

In an interview for, via the Liverpool Echo, Agger revealed his inspiration for the tattoo:

"The club had a big possibility to sell me before the transfer window closed for a lot of money. And two or three days before the transfer window closed, I basically closed all the talk of that.  

"It's not only the club, it's also the city. It's everything about it. I still miss Liverpool - as a football club, but also as a city."

"My first tattoo I got when I was 15 on a school trip to Paris," he said.

"It wasn't something I'd thought about before. Me and a friend just went into the shop and said 'can you do that for me?' and we just got it. I've actually still got it. It wasn't that bad!"
