The lack of a winter break has often been a highly debated issue in English football.

The traditional purists have been in favour of the games being played during the Christmas period and the New Year, while fans who have enough knowledge of the continental football clearly see the benefits of having a winter break towards the end of the campaign.

The lack of a winter break has been cited as the reason for the failure of England as an international team in the last few years. Bringing up this topic once again, former Liverpool defender Daniel Agger has said that he has immensely benefited from a winter break.

Former Liverpool defender Daniel Agger has opened up on his surprising results from Liverpool in the summer.

It was only 12 months ago that the Danish defender was linked with a move to Barcelona for just under £ 20 million. Liverpool resisted the urge to sell him, but he was allowed to leave for just under £ 5 million a year later. He featured very less under Brendan Rodgers last season, which prompted rumours that he had fallen out with the coach. Agger came back to his former club Brondby at a time when many players will still be playing in a top-level European league.

Following the departure of Daniel Agger from Anfield Road, Brendan Rodgers named Jordan Henderson as the new vice-captain of Liverpool. Henderson is a player that joined Liverpool 3 years ago as he was signed from Sunderland with a price tag in the region of €20 million and has established himself as a vital player in the English club and is considered to be one of the best players to succeed Daniel Agger.

Daniel Agger decided to spend the next years of his career with the club where he used to perform during his youth with Brondby but the experienced centre-back has also made headlines in his country after he paid for Denmark’s homeless football team to fly to the World Cup in Chile.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has dismissed rumours that defender Daniel Agger could be sold in the summer after falling out of favour. Agger has been a regular first-team player for Liverpool in the last five years. He has been at the club since the 2005-06 season, thus making him as one of the club’s longest serving players amongst the current crop. The signing of Sakho and Kolo Toure last summer brought about disastrous consequences for the Danish international. He made only 20 appearances in the league after having previously started in almost every match in previous seasons.

Liverpool defender Daniel Agger says that the club need not be warned more about the attacking qualities of Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen, who will be visiting Anfield with his Tottenham team on Sunday. This match was billed as the race between the top four at the start of the season. However, impressive form in the second half of the campaign has made Liverpool surprise title contenders, whereas Tottenham have fallen down the other end after the appointment of Tim Sherwood. Inconsistent results have made it very difficult for Tottenham to even think about a top four finish this season.

ITALY CALLING

This might be Daniel Agger’s last season in the English top flight as the 29 years old centre-back is believed to be interested in making a move to Italy.

Napoli might be his next destination if the reports coming through have truth in them.

The man who is in charge at Napoli at the moment is Rafael Benitez with whom Agger has worked in the past and the duo’s relationship is brilliant. So, the Danish international would surely have more opportunities to play there.

The second thing is that Napoli is more likely to qualify for the Champions League than Liverpool at this point of time. So, by moving to Stadio San Paolo, Agger would give himself a better chance of featuring in the Champions League next season.

Agger had been the first choice centre-back for Liverpool in the last couple of seasons, but, this season, he has fallen down the pecking order as a couple of other quality defenders have joined the Reds camp.

SAKHO SETTLING IN

Mamadou Sakho, who was brought into Liverpool for close to £ 20 million, has said that he is starting to get settled to life at Anfield. The former Paris St Germain defender is regarded as someone with a huge potential. The 23-year-old fell out with his former club and decided to move to Merseyside despite the fact that Liverpool were not capable of offering him Champions League football. Brendan Rodgers had guided Liverpool to seventh place last season and things were not looking good for the club.

BARCA WANT AGGER

Daniel Agger is a transfer target of Barcelona as the Catalan team tried to lure him from Liverpool in the past summer but the Premier League side managed to keep him in the club although questions are being raised on how long he will remain with Liverpool as not only Barcelona but also Napoli are interested in securing his services.

"I'm not saying I wasn't tempted, because anyone would be in that situation, but for the club to say that to me was enough. I am happy here and my family is happy here also and that's a good combination." That was the statement from Agger as he remained with Liverpool in summer.

It is believed that Rafael Benitez is going to attempt bringing Agger to Napoli in January as the team is willing to pay him £3.5 million per season.

LIVERPOOL IMPRESS

Despite the fact that Liverpool is one of the most successful clubs in England and has won more European trophies than any other English team in the last few years the club has been going through a disastrous era involving constant changes in coaches and bankruptcy which lead to the club having a new owner.

Liverpool was sold to Fenway Sports Group on 15 October 2010 for £300m and the last time they managed to grab hold of the Premier League was in the season of 1989. Not only that but also failing to make it into the top 5 spots of their respective league in the last 4 years.

Fernando Torres and Steven Gerrard used to be the most notable players for the English club up until when the Spanish striker made his move to Chelsea in which Liverpool sought out to find a replacement and secured the services of the Uruguayan Luis Suarez. It was his move which tiggered sport bet company Unibet to offer odds on Liverpool challenging for a top 4 spot once more.

AGGER WILL FIGHT

Daniel Agger has said that he is determined to get his spot back in the starting XI of Liverpool.

Agger has recently recovered from his rib injury that had kept him out of action last month, but, after his return to action, he is not getting starting opportunities. He warmed the bench in Liverpool’s last couple of league games.

However, Agger put up a great show playing for his country Denmark yesterday in a World Cup qualifying game against Malta. He found the back of the net a couple of times and helped his team thrash the opposition by 6-0.

Agger is rated very highly by the clubs all around the world. During the pre-season transfer window, Barcelona which is one of the best clubs in the world had made a bid for him, but, Liverpool had rejected that bid.

When asked about that Barcelona bid, Agger said, “It was the decision of the club not to let me go.”
