Former Liverpool Defender Daniel Agger Announces Retirement On Twitter
Former Liverpool defender Daniel Agger took to Twitter to announce his retirement on Wednesday.
The Dane who spent the last two years of his career with Brondby, struggled with fitness problems towards the end of his time at Anfield.
Agger confirming his retirement on Twitter said that he had come to the “sad” decision to stop playing but was proud of his 12-year career.
Agger made 232 appearances for Liverpool after joining from Brondby in January 2006. He was part of the side which reached the Champions League final in 2007 and won a League Cup winners’ medal in 2012.
One of the stalwarts of the Reds defence, Agger was also a fine all-rounder who contributed some important goals.
However, recurring injuries had slowed him slowed down with Agger making the final call to hang up his boots at the age of just 31.
Tweeting that he was “proud” of his career, Agger won 71 caps for Denmark as well.
