Daniel Agger
Agger has clarified his position at Liverpool.

Liverpool defender Daniel Agger has taken to Twitter to clarify comments stating a desire to leave Anfield should Brendan Rodgers continue to overlook him.

Agger had begun the campaign first choice in The Reds defence but a rib problem aggravated against Southampton forced him out of action for a fortnight and the Danish international is still to regain his place in the first team.

Rodgers has instead preferred to partner Martin Skrtel and Mamadou Sakho at centre-back in each of Liverpool's last four games, with Jose Enrique and Aly Cissoko featuring at left-back.

The Reds turned down an offer from Barcelona for Agger's services in the summer and the Dane has said having been an unused substitute in the club's last two matches he may have to seek an exit from Liverpool.

"If I don't play, and if the manager doesn't think I am good enough, that could make me leave Liverpool," Agger said.

"I'm here to play football, nothing else. So if I don't play football, then I don't want to be here anymore."

But the 27 year old has now taken to Twitter to clarify his comments regarding wanting to leave Liverpool, stating: "Please stop all the tweets about me leaving! I'm not going anywhere! Will be back in the team soon:) Y.N.W.A."

In Agger's absence Liverpool have impressed in the Premier League this season, winning six of their opening nine league games, the most recent victory coming in the 4-1 thrashing of West Bromwich Albion.

Despite Rodgers having criticised the club's leaky defence in the wake of the 2-2 draw with 10-man Newcastle United the previous weekend, Liverpool's potent strike-force of Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge are making up for any deficiencies at the back.

Suarez netted a hat-trick, his first for the club at Anfield, while Sturridge netted a sublime fourth to crown an ideal afternoon for Rodgers' men, who travel to leaders Arsenal this weekend in a showdown of the division's early pacesetters.
