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.

Brendan Rodgers was selected as the manager of Liverpool on June of 2012 but things haven’t exactly gone well for Northern Irish coach as he has not lifted a single title with the Premier League club.

The team of Brendan Rodgers is still feeling blow that they received after offloading Luis Suarez and attempting to fill his absence by signing Mario Balotelli but the Italian attacker has been one of the worst signings of the Premier League in modern times as Balotelli has only scored 1 league goal in 15 appearances.

The last title that Liverpool secured was the Carling Cup which was 3 years ago with Kenny Dalglish being the manager that managed to accomplish this but he was sacked due to the lack of titles and unless Brendan Rodgers can clinch some important pieces of silverware, he will be sacked as well.

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.
