Daniel Munthe Agger (born 12 December 1984) is a Danish footballer who plays for Liverpool as a central defender. At 21-years-old, Agger was signed by Rafael Benitez for £6,000,000 on 12 January 2006- the highest fee paid by Liverpool for a defender at the time. He quickly found himself in the first team and collected winner's medals from both the 2005-06 FA Cup and 2006 Community Shield within his first few months of life on Anfield.
Although Agger's career on Merseyside has been disrupted by various injuries, he is still regarded as one of the finest centre backs at the club. In addition to his defensive prowess, Agger is renowned for his technical ability and fierce shot on goal. In the 2011-12 season, Agger finally enjoyed a largely injury-free season, forming a much-lauded central defensive partnership with Martin Skrtel, keeping Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher on the sidelines for the first time in his 15-year career.
