Agger wants to keep Liverpool place despite knee injury

Liverpool central defender Daniel Agger believes the small fracture in his knee cap is not serious enough to prevent him from taking his place in Brendan Rodgers’ side. The Denmark international was stretchered off in Liverpool’s home defeat to Manchester United and there were initial suggestions that the injury could keep him for a sustained period.

However, according to the Liverpool Echo, scans revealed no ligament damage and Agger was able to line up in Liverpool’s first Premier League win of the season just six days later.

I feared the worst when it happened,” admitted Agger, who has been a regular absentee through long-term injuries in his time at Anfield where he has played since 2005. “When I tried to get up the muscle in my knee just didn’t work. I felt really unsteady and the medical staff thought I had done my ligaments. I’ve got a small fracture in the bone but it’s only a minor thing. It’s not a problem. I only started training last Friday but I was fine for the Norwich game.

Following the relief of Liverpool finally getting off the mark in the league under Rodgers’ management, the Northern Irishman could be set to make wholesale changes to his side for Thursday’s Europa League clash with Udinese at Anfield.
