Agger’s Liverpool future in more doubt as national coach wades in

Daniel Agger

Denmark’s head coach Morten Olsen has urged the out-of-favour defender to “make the right choice” this summer.

Daniel Agger’s future at Liverpool is looking in extreme jeopardy after the Scandinavian defender admitted that he was frustrated by his lack of game time in the 2013-14 campaign.

After struggling with injuries, the Denmark international found himself behind the likes of Martin Skrtel and Mamadou Sakho in the pecking order at Anfield.

With question marks over where Agger will play his football next season, Denmark’s national coach Morten Olsen has suggested that the star could well be better suited to a transfer this summer.

“I won’t ask Daniel about it,” Olsen told Danish newspaper Bold.

“He can best gauge how it looks now and, more importantly, in the next season.

“But of course he should be playing. Otherwise I believe we will have a frustrated and irritated captain.

“I hope he will make the right choice.”

Agger’s name has been in the transfer columns for some time now, with plenty of clubs across the continent said to be monitoring his situation.

Former boss Rafa Benitez is said to want to sign him for Napoli in the latest rumbling.
