Daniel Agger is injured again! I had thought that he had hopefully gotten over his injury problems which have hit his Liverpool career. What is frustrating with Agger is that it is not one continuous problem, if it is not his ankle, it is his groin or his thigh and now it is his rib.
Agger went down on Sunday against Tottenham and if he was not injured, Spurs may not have scored their opening goal. Now it is being reported that Agger has fractured his rib and is likely to be out for 4 weeks. It is not really Agger’s fault that he has been plagued by injuries throughout his whole Liverpool career, just take a look at his injury on Sunday, it was really unfortunate.
At the start of the season I was looking forward to seeing a decent partnership forming between Agger and Carragher but now we will not see those two together for a while. Martin Skrtel is suspended for the Carling Cup game today (Wednesday) following his red card against Spurs so he will not be available which means that Kenny Dalglish is set to give Sebastian Coates his full Liverpool debut either alonsgide Carragher or young Danny Wilson.
Wilson is hoping to get a start tonight and build on his Liverpool career. “Hopefully the manager decides to play me again and I’ll look to take the chance that comes along,” he told the Liverpool Echo.
“If you’re not getting a run of games and are only given one opportunity then you need to make sure you take it.
“Brighton have just come up from League One and are going well in the Championship. It will be a tricky game but we just need to focus on ourselves. If we apply ourselves in the right way we are a match for any team.”
Now looking at all the injuries Agger has been picking up, do you think it is time for Liverpool to cash in on Agger and sell as we can not really rely on him? There is no doubt that Agger is a great talent and could go on to be a Liverpool great but for how long will he continue to pick up these injuries? He is still only 26-years-old. We signed him for only £6million in 2006 and surely we could get much more for him if we do sell him. What are your thoughts?
