Rodgers doesn’t think I’m good enough, says Liverpool defender Agger
Liverpool central defender Daniel Agger has told of his frustration at being left out of some of their big games towards the end of the season, the Liverpool Echo has reported.
Having missed the 2-1 win at West Ham United on April 6 through injury, Agger then lost his place to Mamadou Sakho upon his recovery, with the Frenchman then playing alongside Martin Skrtel for potentially title-deciding games against Manchester City and Chelsea. Agger scored upon his return, which was in the final day victory over Newcastle United.
The Dane’s future has been the subject of some debate over the past year, with Premier League rivals Arsenal among those linked with making a bid, but Agger insists that he is not thinking about his future despite his anger at his lack of playing time towards the end of the season.
He said: “I don’t know. That’s up to the manager. I can’t go and put myself on the team sheet. It definitely wasn’t great (to be left out of the games against Chelsea and Manchester City), but I don’t make the decisions. I think it is because the manager doesn’t think that I’m good enough.
“I’m not thinking about my future. Now my focus is on the next international games with Denmark and then I’m looking forward to a long five-week holiday. My body and mind needs to relax.”
