Daniel Agger makes promise to Liverpool fans on Twitter

The former Liverpool defender responded to a follower's question about the Anfield club.

Daniel Agger has promised Liverpool fans he will be at Anfield to watch the Reds in action 'very soon.'

The former fan favourite (he remains popular with supporters but is no longer a Liverpool player) says he will visit Merseyside to watch a match soon.

The Reds faithful no doubt have plenty of good memories about the 31-year-old...

It will only be a passing visit, of course, and not a Liverpool return - but it's still nice to see Agger maintain a bond with the Anfield faithful.

That bond never broke, in truth, and - like Pepe Reina and a few others - it appeared the Dane was forced out of Merseyside by Brendan Rodgers, even though he also expressed a desire to return to his homeland.

Since Agger's Liverpool departure, the Reds have struggled for form at the back. Dejan Lovren has largely been a nightmare, while Martin Skrtel has shown poor form, too.

Mamadou Sakho impressed of late but then got injured, meaning Jurgen Klopp's reign at Liverpool has started in not dissimilar fashion to the way Rodgers' ended from a defensive point of view.
