Aldridge: Bring back Agger
Former Liverpool player John Aldridge believes Brendan Rodgers should recall Daniel Agger to Liverpool’s starting XI, the Mirror understands.
The Reds have been playing a 3-5-2 formation in recent weeks, and were exposed last time out as league leaders Arsenal beat them by two goals to nil.
Agger has barely featured over the past six weeks despite recovering from injury, and has recently been linked with a move to Napoli which would see him reunite with manager Rafael Benitez, but Aldridge is calling on Rodgers’ to reinstate the Denmark international for this weekend’s clash with Fulham.
The arrivals of Kolo Toure and Mamadou Sakho in the summer, along with the superb form of Martin Skrtel, have so far stopped Agger from adding to his 160 league appearances for the club, but he has insisted that he remains happy on Merseyside, and that he has no intention of moving on.
Meanwhile, England manager Roy Hodgson has announced his squad for the forthcoming friendlies against Chile and Germany.
Jordan Henderson, Glen Johnson and Daniel Sturridge make up the Liverpool contingent for the games which will take place on November 15th and 19th respectively, along with captain Steven Gerrard, who will become England’s third most capped player of all time if he plays in both games.
