Five reasons why Koeman failed


Agger in the dark

Daniel Agger has expressed his desire to stay at Liverpool, but says his Anfield future is in the hands of the club and no one has spoken to him about the situation.

Agger, 27, has been strongly linked with a move to Premier League champions Manchester City, while Spanish giants Barcelona are also in the running for his signature.

Reds boss Brendan Rodgers last week hinted Agger's time at Anfield may be up by admitting "every player has his price" and the centre-back's Liverpool career has been plunged into further doubt with news that City are believed to be preparing a third bid after seeing two reported bids rejected.

However, Agger, currently on international duty with Denmark ahead of Wednesday's friendly with Slovenia, claims he has not been informed of City's interest and remains hopeful he will be plying his trade on Merseyside this season.

When asked about his future, Agger told Politiken: "I have not been told anything by the club regarding the transfer. It is not up to me to judge whether it's weird or not. That is how the club has decided that it should be. I can not do anything.

"This period is every year, but I take it quietly with a smile. There has not been anything from the club so far, there's no reason for me to be worried. I know there has been something from Manchester City, but i dont know what Liverpool thinks of it.

"I'm fine with my situation. The club must find out what they want. I have heard nothing from them. I'd rather be here, but it's not me who has the decision at the moment.

"Liverpool may just make the transfer, even though I have two years left. But no, I have not changed my mind on the subject when I said I will not play for other English clubs than Liverpool, but sometimes you can still get in a situation where it's not your decision.

"I will not stay in a place where I am not wanted, but I'd rather be here. This is my priority."

Agger has recently had the initials of the famous Reds song 'You'll Never Walk Alone' tattooed onto his knuckles, but he insists it has no connection.

"It has nothing to do with my current situation. It is a gesture towards the Kop, towards Liverpool and towards the people around the club."
