Agger committed to Liverpool
Liverpool defender Daniel Agger reaffirmed his commitment to the club and is confident that manager Brendan Rodgers will have no problems rebuilding their defence in the summer.

Agger also has no doubt that the Reds will attract the players necessary for a defensive overhaul capable of propelling the club to a top-four finish in 2014 - but says quality should be added throughout the squad.
"Liverpool will always attract great talent and footballers so I'm not worried about that," Agger added. "Liverpool is such a big club worldwide I think - and I hope - most players would want to join this club.
"We need to change something. We need to get some goals in and we need to move forward. It is difficult to say if the squad needs much work. We've shown some really good football this season but we haven't been consistent enough - we have to admit that."
Agger will inherit the mantle of elder statesman at the heart of the Liverpool defence, but while the 28-year-old believes he can take on a leadership role at Anfield he admits he cannot replace Carragher's presence.
"Jamie speaks for himself," Agger added. "To be at that level for that long, it's not impossible but really close. You learn from every single player you play with in training. If you want to be the best you have to learn from the best.
"I don't think you have to replace him because every footballer is not the same. Every person is different. When someone steps down, someone else has to take over. I play the way I do. I am the person I am and I'm doing the things I'm doing and I won't really change.
"I am taking the responsibility I need to take. I enjoy it and there are a few players who are taking a lot of responsibility."
