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. In this era, central defenders have been playing beyond the age of 35 if they have great condition.

There are media reports that Newcastle might be considering Daniel Agger in order to strengthen their defence.

Indeed, it has been the leaky defence that has caused Newcastle to lose matches last season and the Newcastle manager Rafael Benitez will be keen to find quality players to improve it. The defensive problems have been evident since the start of last season, but Newcastle failed to address it in the January transfer window.

Daniel Agger is set to join Italian club side AC Milan. The media was rife with reports last week that the Denmark international had agreed to rejoin Rafa Benitez at Newcastle. Benitez couldn’t save Newcastle as they were relegated from the English Premier League but he agreed to help the club regain their tier one status despite having the clause in his contract that he was not obligated to do so.

Benitez sought to add centre back Daniel Agger to his Championship side but current reports say the former Liverpool man will join AC Milan instead. According to TalkSport, the 31-year-old Dane has been approached by the Serie A giants about a Bosman deal, especially as his current deal with Brondby expires at the end of the month.

Daniel Agger says he would continue to play football due to his love for the round leather game.
The hopes of the defender staying on with Brondby are unknown but the 31-year old player declared his interest to keep at football.

He was quoted saying: “there were those who wanted it more than me, because I played football because I had fun. Every other year I played on the second team and I was alright with that.”

Agger finds joy in football and playing for his boyhood club by turning down reported interest from top clubs such as Barcelona, Arsenal and Napoli.

“I have special feelings for this club and for me that means more than money and material things,” He claimed after official joining Brondby in 2014.

Denmark defeated rivals Iceland on Thursday in an international friendly at home. Denmark went into the game with much confidence since they have never lost to Iceland ever.

However, The Red and White as fondly called had lost six games prior to meeting Iceland. The head coach, Age Fridtjof Hareide replaced the former coach and hoped to kick start his coaching career with a great debut.

Denmark had always prevailed against their Iceland counterparts. In the 2002 world cup qualifiers, the danes defeated Iceland by six unreplied goals. In the race for Euro 2008 qualifiers, Denmark went past Iceland, winning by a three goal margin at home and a two goal margin away. In 2012, same Euro qualifiers, Denmark defeated Iceland by a lone goal at home and double of that at Iceland.

Age Hareide has just taken charge of the Danish National side and has only had a couple of days of training with the squad, but, despite that, he wants victories in the friendly games that lie ahead.

The first of those games is against Iceland which will be played at MCH Arena against Iceland. The FIFA rankings have Denmark and Iceland situated very close to each other and also, man-to-man, one wouldn’t be able to choose too much out of the two squads. The latest odds at StanJames suggest that the bookmakers don't know which way it will go either!?

Jurgen Klopp is starting to get frustrated by the situation of Daniel Sturridge, but, he has vowed to provide every bit of support to the talented England international.

Sturridge has failed to play too many games for the Reds in the ongoing season.

After remaining out of the line up due to injury for the starting four weeks of the season, Sturridge had returned to the Liverpool fold in September and had shown good form too.

He had smashed a brace to sink Aston Villa in his second game on comeback and was all set to lead Liverpool’s front line for the rest of the season, but, unfortunately, it wasn’t to be as another injury hampered him to rule him out of action again and he is yet to get it healed.

The absence of Sturridge is creating problems for Liverpool and that’s why, they have been in search of a striker in the transfer market.

Michael Laudrup was approached for the managerial job by the Football association of Denmark, but, he refused to accept the offer.

A statement released by the association read, “We tried to get Michael on board, but, it did not materialize. He is not willing to take up the job right now because of private reasons.”

Laudrup is the 5th most capped player for Denmark till date.

He was an absolute superstar in the soccer world in the eighties and the nineties.

The 51-year old, who was a playmaker, made more than 100 appearances for the Red and White.

Laudrup has pursued a career in management and has had the opportunity to manage clubs in different countries, but, he has not had as much of success in that field as he had as a player.

He is currently jobless after parting ways with Lekhwiya a few months ago.

Daniel Sturridge has suffered another setback to his promising career after being ruled out for another month due to injury.

The striker had a very positive spell in his first full season as Liverpool when he was playing alongside Luis Suarez. It looked like the Reds had found themselves an incredible bargain after having signed him for around £ 12 million from Chelsea. However, Sturridge has gone from one injury to another in the last 18 months and it looks like there is no relief in sight. He was expected to return to first-team action in the crucial game against Manchester United next week.

Daniel Agger has claimed that he feels has playing the best football of his career despite being shown the door by Liverpool last year.

The Danish centre back spent a long time with Liverpool and won the League Cup in the process. However, he had been marginalised by manager Brendan Rodgers towards the end of his time at Anfield. This was largely seen as a reflection of the player’s poor form. However, the centre back has denied such allegations and says that the interest from Barcelona is an indicator that he was still playing at top of his game when he left Liverpool.
