'Do not really care what the match is' - Departed Liverpool hero has itchy feet

Daniel Agger cannot wait to get back into action for Brondby, potentially against FC Copenhagen this weekend

In one of the more surprising transfers of the summer Liverpool star Daniel Agger left the club to re-sign for boyhood outfit Brondby in his Danish homeland.

Liverpool accepted a cut-price deal for the player believed to be in the region of £3 million after he asked to be allowed the move for family reasons.

Agger has had the chance to move to Barcelona and Napoli in the past but he always maintained he would only play for two teams in his career - Brondby and Liverpool. His honesty in backing that up has seen him maintain his cult status at Anfield.

But he is still waiting for his debut for the club.

Agger has a minor injury to his thigh which meant he had to watch Brondby lose to Randers Fc from the bench last weekend, but he could be in action against FC Copenhagen in the highly anticipated New Firm Derby on Sunday afternoon.

And Agger, in his usual style, has been speaking about his comeback - and he doesn't care who he faces.

He told DR Sport:

"It is a thigh injury that is improving. I think that you could see that in training today. I was on an equal footing with everyone else. It was not 100 per cent, but it's getting there. I do not really care what the match is. For me it's important to get onto the pitch and play some football. So it doesn't matter who it is against."

Liverpool fans will be watching on, hoping their departed hero can make it good back in Denmark.
