Daniel Agger’s striking tattoos are a testament to his love of Liverpool – the city and the football club.
The defender had the initials YNWA – for You’ll Never Walk Alone – inked into the knuckles of his right hand and he has revealed it was an easy decision to have it done. He told Liverpoolfc.com: ‘I’d thought about it for a long time. As I said, I feel a part of this club – and I feel a part of this city. I have been here so long now, so it was an easy decision.
‘I am proud to be here and I think my knuckles show that.’ The Denmark international moved to Merseyside from Brondby in 2006 and has recently signed a new long-term deal to keep him at Anfield. And Agger has revealed that life is good under new boss Brendan Rodgers and expects results to improve in the coming weeks.
Agger said: ‘I am enjoying life under the new manager. I really like it and I am happy every day going into training. ‘I really feel we have a good team, a good mentality and a style of good football that I want to play. I definitely believe we can get back (to the top). ‘I’m not a fan of looking into the future. I take every day as it comes, but I work hard every day and try to achieve the goals I want to. It’s important everybody is focused to achieve those goals.’
He added: ‘In terms of points, it hasn’t been that good (so far this season) but I think we’ve played really well. ‘We’ve made a few mistakes, but in general we’ve played good football and now we just need the results. At the end of the day, that’s the most important part.’
