Rodgers hails Agger loyalty
Brendan Rodgers has praised Daniel Agger’s loyalty to Liverpool and insisted he is in no doubt the player will stay with the club.
At a time when Luis Suarez is publicly angling for a transfer away from Anfield, Rodgers is confident that the Denmark international defender will not go the same way following links with Barcelona.
"This is all about loyalty," Rodgers told a press conference ahead of Wednesday’s pre-season friendly game with Valerenga.
"He's obviously a world-class defender. Daniel is very committed to Liverpool; he's one of the players that has 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.
"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.
"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."
