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.

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.

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.

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.”

Liverpool defender Daniel Agger is reportedly being targeted by Barcelona as they look for a top quality defender to shore up the defense. The Catalan giants had long been on the trail of Brazilian international Thiago Silva but now look set to miss out on the player as the former AC Milan man looks set to stay put at his present club Paris saint Germain, having won the league with them last season.

The future of the Danish international has been the subject of much speculation in recent weeks with newly rich AS Monaco also said to be keen on the player and it is being believed Barcelona manager Tito Vilanova will push for the player he believes will solve the club’s defensive crisis. Spanish newspapers have suggested that Daniel Agger fits the bill of Barcelona as a perfect ball playing defender, capable of playing his way out trouble at the back and will provide cover for the ageing Carles Puyol whose future remains in doubt after a series of injury ravaged seasons.

The Liverpool centre back Daniel Agger has said that Brendan Rodgers is doing a fine job as manager and the team will win trophies under his guidance in the next season.

In this season, Liverpool doesn’t have the chance to win any trophy now. In the Premier League points table, they are currently at no. 7 with 45 points in 30 matches. They only have to play 8 games now and their chances of finishing in top 4 are not looking that good.

When asked about the performance of Liverpool in this season, Agger said, “This is a team which is on the right track. The management is in the hand of right person and things are going well in the camp. Yes, we have not won any trophy in this season, but, we will win a few in the next season.”

“We have a few things to sort out. I think we need a bigger squad. That will give us more options.”

Daniel Agger has said that Luis Suarez is the best player in the Liverpool squad at the moment.

Suarez is in the form of his life at the moment. He has performed magnificently for the Reds in the ongoing season. The Uruguayan forward has featured for Liverpool in 22 Premier League matches in this season and has found the net 16 times. These figures tell the whole story.

When asked about Suarez’s form in this season, Agger said, “He has been fantastic so far. I think he is the best player in our squad. In the training sessions, I find him the most difficult player to compete against. He has got tremendous quality. I am happy that I am playing alongside him.”

“Not only is Luis the best in our squad, he is probably one of the best in the world. He is certainly one of the top 5 strikers in the world.”

When asked about the inconsistent performance of Liverpool in the first half of the ongoing season, Agger said, “I don’t like looking back. I like moving forward. Now, what happened in the first half of the season, we can’t change that. But, we can make sure that the second half would be better than the first one. We should be looking forward.”

“It’s obviously disappointing to lose matches. We should not have lost that many matches. But, we can still make up for that by being consistent in the remaining of the season.”

When asked about his foundation which collects money for the needy people through auctions, Agger said, “Our motive is to provide support to the needy people all over the world. Recently, an Indian school asked us to arrange some money for them and we did that.”

The former Liverpool legend Alan Hansen has said that the defensive pair of Daniel Agger and Martin Skrtel are extremely important to the club. The two players have formed a great partnership in recent years, which has even forced the Liverpool managers to not use the veteran Jamie Carragher for important matches. Daniel Agger has been at the club for the last six seasons and Alan Hansen has said that he would have been an even better player had not been for the injuries. Agger has consistently suffered a number of injuries during his spell at Liverpool.

So far, he has managed to stay fit this campaign, which have translated into the better defensive performances of Liverpool. Their problems this season have come in the attacking sense where they have been unable to score goals when it matters and when they are on top. Daniel Agger is not only adept at defending, but he is also extremely good at starting the attacks according to Hansen. Due to his ball playing abilities, he can bring the ball out of the defence quite comfortably and start the attacks. This is an extremely important aspect of football that is often forgotten according to Hansen, who was regarded as one of the best players for Liverpool.

“He’s exceptionally comfortable in possession of the ball. He’s never embarrassed when the ball is at his feet – and traditionally Liverpool centre-backs have always been all of that. When you look at some of the centre-backs Liverpool have had with the ball at their feet ... in the 70s and 80s it was virtually every one, you could go through them and they were phenomenal with the ball at their feet. And Daniel’s up there with the best of them," said Hansen. Liverpool are currently in the 12th position.

The Danish defender Daniel Agger has said that he should not played in the 1-1 draw with Chelsea during the weekend because it has only aggravated the groin problem that he suffered prior to this match. The 27-year-old Daniel Agger is regarded as one of the best players at Liverpool. He was rested in the Europa league encounter in midweek, which give him the opportunity to play against Chelsea. He was extremely crucial in helping Liverpool get a point from the fixture, but he has now said that in hindsight he should not have played in the match.

Daniel Agger was suffering from a groin injury and had to take painkilling injections in order to play through the pain barrier. He has now withdrawn from the friendly match for the Denmark national team against Turkey so that he does not aggravate the injury even further. Martin Skrtel did not play for Liverpool in the match, as he was suffering from a virus.

As a result, Daniel Agger was partnered with Jamie Carragher in the back. The two players were extremely good against the single striker in the form of Fernando Torres. He is now hoping that he will be fit for the match against Wigan during the weekend.

"I should not have played on Sunday but Skrtel became ill and there was not much I could do. I was thrown into it. I have a pulled groin. It was something that should have kept me out on Sunday but it did not. I played the game. It takes hopefully only a few days (to recover). The reason why I have cancelled for Wednesday is that it is a bit early to play three days," said Agger. Liverpool are currently in the 13th position with only 12 points from the 11 matches played so far.
