More to come, claims Agger

Agger has seen his last couple of seasons at Anfield blighted by a

series of niggling injuries. The Danish international believes he

is benefitting from a full pre-season and he believes there is

still a lot more to come from him this season. “The fact I got the

full pre-season has helped me a lot. I feel a lot stronger, a lot

better, but I still have more to come, hopefully,” Agger told the

club’s official website. “I feel I can give some more, have more to

offer, so hopefully I can carry on playing games and that will help

me. “Fitness-wise I am happy right now, but as the season carries

on you get more games under your belt and you get stronger, quicker

and better.” Agger, who has started all four of Liverpool’s Premier

League games to date, is not worried about the extra competition

for places at Anfield this season despite the recent arrival of

Uruguyan defender Sebastian Coates. “I have been here almost six

years now and every year there are new players coming in and

players going,” noted Agger. “It is normal for a big club like

Liverpool to bring in players to add to the competition. Everything

changes every year, so it’s good to have healthy competition as we

have now. It’s good for the club and the players.”
