"I follow your opinion on the danish league and understand that it is not quite the same quality premiership - far from. But this guy has star quality. Last summer he replaced Andreas Jakobson who moved to Southampton. Andreas J was one of our best players and we where worried that out defense wouldn't be the same after he left. At the time the U-21 coach from Brondby gave an interview and said "After 10 matches nobody will talk of Andreas Jakobson anymore" - and he was right. In the 33 games he has been playing like a dream!"
Brøndby fan Erik Fjellanger Schmidt in May 2005 on Daniel Agger
"I'm the same quiet, private person as when I lived in Denmark and I can't imagine ever changing. I love playing, and I am enjoying being at Liverpool, but I don't like what goes with it.
I know it probably sounds strange, but I have no real interest in football, aside from playing. When my career is over, I will walk away from the game for good. I already have plans, but all I will say is they have nothing to do with football. That is my character. But there is a big difference between being laid-back off the pitch and how I am on it. Something happens when I put my boots on and go out there. I become a different person. I just switch on and come alive."
Daniel Agger in October 2006
"Ever since he has come in he has looked like a typical Liverpool centre-back, going back to the days of Mark Lawrenson and Alan Hansen, and he is very good on the ball."
Carra on newcomer Agger in November 2006
"Daniel Agger is very professional, he's very, very focused in his career, very well prepared for every game. These things help because if you have a player who is 21 years old thinking about girls and cars and things like that, then maybe it would be more difficult for him to settle down, but he's very, very focused on football."
Rafa on Daniel Agger in March 2007
"To have played 50 times for Liverpool by the age of 22 shows the quality he has. He has the potential to be up there with the likes of Hansen and Smith – and that's an accolade of the highest order. The thing that impresses me most about him is his ability on the ball. He has the composure to pick out a pass or bring the ball forward. I don't see that in a lot of centre-backs these days.
When he first arrived he looked a bit lightweight – it reminded me of when I first broke into the team. But he's filled out and worked on his strength. He also reads the game very well for his age and can cover ground quickly. The thing is, centre-back is a position where you only get better with age, so there's a lot more to come from him yet.
Sami Hyypia has been a legend for this club, but Agger has come in and done fantastic. I still think Sami has a part to play at Liverpool and there's certainly no one better for Agger to learn from."
