Aggers Future In Doubt?
'Play me or let me leave', those were the words of Daniel Agger yesterday as he spoke of his frustration at this limited chances in the Liverpool side.
The Danish internationals chances have been limted since the arrival of Martin Skrtel last year, and he feels he deserves a place in the Reds team. âLet me be honest and admit that, if I donât play, then itâs untenable and it canât go on like that,â said Agger.
âItâs never fun as a footballer when you donât play every time. Thatâs no secret. But thatâs my situation in the club right now, that he (Benitez) wonât let me play.
âThatâs not my decision. The question now is whether this is the right thing for me, because I would like to play some football.
âBut for now I have chosen to give it some time and give it a chance and fight for my spot in the team.
âI feel Iâm good enough. For the same reason itâs annoying that I donât play.
âIâll wait for the chance and then I will prove that Iâm good enough. Iâll show them â no doubt about that.â
The Dane had a regular run in the side before Christmas due to the injury to Skrtel, but hasnt been able to force himself back in to the heart of the Liverpool defense, even though he did start at Portsmouth on saturday as part of a three man defence, but Skrtel was imminently put back alongside Carragher when he returned from injury. Contract talks were due to take place with Agger, but they are still to be scheduled, and Agger has the opportunity to buy out his contract under the Webster ruling in the summer, the Danes Anfield career could soon be over.
