Brendan Rodgers laughing at Mario Balotelli’s miss
I was upset when Torres, Alonso and Suarez left. I was sad when Carragher retired. But I cried when I realized you were no longer a Liverpool player. You stayed with us when the future of Liverpool football club looked bleak. You could have left us and joined clubs like Barcelona, Manchester City, and AC Milan. You could have played Champions League football like you deserved. But instead you made the AC Milan chairman wait in a restaurant and you tattooed YNWA on your knuckles. That gesture alone was enough to prove that you are an epitome of loyalty and passion.
We wish that injuries didn’t harm your career. We wish we could have given you a proper and fitting farewell. We wish you were still Liverpool’s number 5. We wish you were still Liverpool’s vice captain. We wish you were still a Liverpool player.
We knew that your departure would come after the new summer arrivals and we didn’t want to accept it. But when that day came, you moved us all even more by returning to your hometown club Brondby. You could have moved to a top club in Europe, but you chose not to. I am proud to say that I supported Liverpool in an era when Daniel Agger played for the club.
Thank you, Daniel Agger, for eight and a half years of unmatched service to Liverpool football club. The KOP will never forget you. You have been an inspiration and role model for many. You will always remain a Liverpool Legend.
