Wearing the number 5 shirt, Daniel Agger is a Danish defender that stands at 1.91 metres tall. Born in Rosenjoj, Denmark, on the 12th of December 1984, he is also relatively experienced for his age and has made 145 appearances for the club, scoring seven goals. Arriving from Brondby IF for a fee of around £5million in 2006, Agger is a natural defender who has become an integral part of the team and has proven a popular player amongst fans who enjoy his natural football ability as well as his competency at building an attack from the back. After winning many accolades with his club in his native Denmark, including the Spillerforeningen Talent of the Year Award in 2004 (the Danish equivalent of PFA Young Player of the Year), which he retained in 2005, it was soon to be inevitable that a move abroad was imminent. With this in mind, Denmark’s most expensive export made his Liverpool debut against Birmingham in February, though injury meant his first few months on Merseyside were spent largely on the sidelines. It was during the 2006-07 campaign that Agger really started making a name for himself however. Forcing his way into the starting eleven, he made a great impression on the Kop faithful and even won PFA Player of the Month for September. Unfortunately for Agger however, this season has proved to be somewhat of a struggle as he has battled with injuries and has been on and off the treatment table. He has notched up just 21 appearances so far this season.
