Former Liverpool defender Daniel Agger has made a surprise decision to end his career at the age of 31.

It was only in the summer of 2014 when Agger decided to return to his home country and play for Brøndby – the club where he started his career. After having played just 43 appearances in his second spell, he has announced his retirement from the game. More surprising is the fact that he is still only 31 years of age.
