Rodgers expects Agger to remain loyal to Liverpool

Brendan Rodgers expects Daniel Agger to remain at Liverpool this summer, Sky Sports has reported, as despite interest in the Denmark international from Barcelona, the manager believes Agger will remain loyal to his current employers.

This is all about loyalty,” Rodgers told a press conference in Norway ahead of the Reds’ friendly with Valerenga in Oslo. “He’s obviously a world-class defender. Daniel is very committed to Liverpool; he’s one of the players that have really impressed me.

If we’re talking about loyalty, he was one of the first players that I spoke to when I became the manager. At the time, there were a number of big clubs looking to sign Daniel,” Rodgers continued. “But he gave me his word that for as long as I wanted him to be at Liverpool, he would be at Liverpool. He has never swayed from that.

Agger has been at Liverpool since a 2006 move from Brondby, playing more than 200 times for the Anfield outfit after making fewer than 50 appearances for the Danish club.

Rodgers went on to say: “He has an unswerving commitment to Liverpool which is so refreshing. His loyalty to the club is incredible. I would suspect when he signed his new contract last year, he was hoping that this would be the contract that’s going to allow him to see out the best part of his career at Liverpool.
