Daniel Agger's exiting message for Liverpool, the club and the fans

Enamoured with the club as he etched YNWA onto his skin, new Brondby recruit has written an open letter to Liverpool supporters.

A Liverpool star for eight years, Daniel Agger, 29, has swapped Anfield for Vilfort Park as the Dane joined Brondby in a £3 million deal earlier today, on deadline day.

"Liverpool has been such a big part of my life and my family’s lives for so long that leaving is extremely difficult," said Agger in an open letter.

In almost a decade's worth of competitive football with the Merseysiders, Agger participated in 232 games in all competitions, won a League Cup winners medal, a Community Shield title and helped the club to a Champions League runners-up finish in 2007.

In his letter, Agger paid tribute to the club's fans, to the manner in which the club nurtured him from a youth into manhood and to becoming an honorary Scouser.

"I’ll start by saying that Liverpool fans constantly keep surprising me. Since the news broke about the transfer, I have received so many positive messages and well-wishing for the future – not just from supporters in Liverpool but across the world.

"My family and I have always felt your backing, it is something unique to this football club, this city and our supporters – it’s been a privilege to have represented this club and I’m forever thankful for everything I have learnt during my time here.

"When I joined this great club, I came here as a 21 year old boy with a lot to learn. Liverpool has helped me grow up and shape me into the man I am today. I’m proud of who I’ve become and I wouldn’t be the person I am today without my time at Liverpool.

"I’ve been honoured to live in this close knit city and my experiences as a Liverpudlian are unforgettable. I’d finally like to wish the club all the best for this season. I’ll be supporting you every step of the way, as will millions of others.

"You’ll Never Walk Alone," he finished.

Thus far in the transfer window, Liverpool have sold £83 million worth of talent having sold Luis Suarez to Barcelona, Conor Coady to Huddersfield Town, Pepe Reina to Bayern Munich, Martin Kelly to Crystal Palace and Jack Robinson to Queens Park Rangers.
