Defender Daniel Agger Leaves Liverpool, Returns To Danish Club Brondby

Daniel AggerLiverpool FC announced Saturday that 29-year-old center back Daniel Agger has completed a transfer to Danish club Brondby.

Agger left Brondby in 2006 to join the Reds.

“I would like to thank the Liverpool supporters for the incredible backing they have given me in my time here and the warmth and generosity of spirit displayed to my family,” Agger told Liverpool’s website.

“This has been our home and somewhere we have been very happy and settled. However, more recently I have started to feel the effects of playing regularly in a league that is as physically demanding as the Premier League is, and I would not want to stay if I did not think that I was able to meet that challenge week in, week out.”

Agger, who consistently provided a reliable defensive presence in the back four, played in 232 games for Liverpool. He scored two goals with one assist in 16 games during the Reds’ 2013-14 Premier League campaign.
