Agger thanks Liverpool fans in open letter

The Danish centre-back has written an open note of appreciation to the Reds supporters who stood by him during his eight-and-a-half year stay on Merseyside

Daniel Agger has written an open letter to Liverpool supporters after calling time on his eight-and-a-half year career at Anfield.

The Dane has completed a move which sees him return to Brondby, the only other club he has played for besides the Reds, after admitting that his body could no longer deal with the physicality of the English game.

The 29-year-old, who had ‘YNWA’ tatooed on his hand to show his affection for Liverpool, wrote: “Liverpool has been such a big part of my life and my family’s lives for so long that leaving is extremely difficult.

“I’ll start by saying that Liverpool fans constantly keep surprising me. Since the news broke about the transfer, I have received so many positive messages and well-wishing for the future – not just from supporters in Liverpool but across the world.

“My family and I have always felt your backing, it is something unique to this football club, this city and our supporters – it’s been a privilege to have represented this club and I’m forever thankful for everything I have learnt during my time here.

“When I joined this great club, I came here as a 21 year old boy with a lot to learn. Liverpool has helped me grow up and shape me into the man I am today. I’m proud of who I’ve become and I wouldn’t be the person I am today without my time at Liverpool.

“I’ve been honoured to live in this close knit city and my experiences as a Liverpudlian are unforgettable. I’d finally like to wish the club all the best for this season. I’ll be supporting you every step of the way, as will millions of others. You’ll Never Walk Alone.”

Agger departs having made 232 appearances and scoring 14 goals for Liverpool, winning the League Cup and Community Shield in the process.
