At 31, Daniel Agger, the former Liverpool defender, eventually declared his retirement from football. The Denmark international played for good eight years at Liverpool having joined The Reds from 2006 till 2014 from Brondby IF, before leaving to Liverpool to same, where he announced his requirement.

The center back wrote on Twitter: “Thank you for your support. A great experience. It is sad, but it is the right decision to stop. I am proud of my career.”

He helped Liverpool get to the UEFA Champions League final in 2007 before losing to AC Milan, and also won the now EFL cup under coach Kenny Dalglish’s leadership in 2012.
The ex-Brondby IF defender was part of the team which came close to ending the Liverpool’s long wait for an English Premier League title during his final season with the club as Man City took the glory with two points.

The Denmark international who featured at both the 2010 World Cup in South Africa and Euro 2012 in Poland and Ukraine, subsequently returned to Brondby IF, and signed a two-year contract which significantly reduced his wages.

Agger has now ended his football career when he believed it was time to make such decision which seems like a relatively early age due to his battles with frequent injuries throughout his time in football. The first full season he made at Anfield, in 2006/07, was the only time he appeared more than 40 times for the club in a single season.

The Reds fans as expected reacted to the retirement news by paying tribute to Agger on social media, specifically twitter. He made a total of two hundred and ninety nine [299] senior appearances during his career, finding the net a total of twenty one (21) times.
