Liverpool morning news, Agger casts doubt over future at club, possible extra year for Johnson

A selection of the latest stories involving Liverpool Football Club this Tuesday morning,

Liverpool vice-captain Daniel Agger appears to have cast doubt over his future at the club after expressing his frustration at not holding down a regular starting place under Brendan Rodgers this season.

Sky Sports amongst other media outlets have picked up on an interview he gave to Ekstra Bladet in Denmark, where he was asked about missing out on games against Manchester City and Chelsea.

Agger said: “It definitely wasn’t great. But I don’t make the decisions. I think it is because the manager doesn’t think that I’m good enough.”

The defender also went on to say that he is nobody’s third choice. He has faced fierce competition from Mamadou Sakho for a place in the side this season.

It appeared that Glen Johnson wasn’t going to be offered another deal going into the final year of his contract but the Daily Mail are reporting that he may be offered another year on top of his current terms.

The report says that Johnson would like a longer deal at Anfield but the club are not planning to go back with a revised offer at present.

West Ham United midfielder Mohamed Diame still believes that Liverpool are interested in signing him according to the Daily Mirror.

The 26-year-old said last month that he wanted to leave Upton Park and indicated that the Reds were interested in him.

Diame is quoted, saying: “Liverpool? I can’t tell you if I will be a Liverpool player next season. But I think my name is still on their wanted list.

“I don’t hide it, I’m ambitious and I want to join a top-six side. I am 26 years old and it’s time to take that step.”
