Daniel Agger has bid farewell to Liverpool supporters in an emotional open letter, having completed his £3million move to Danish club Brondby.

The 29-year-old is returning home after a successful eight-and-a-half year spell at Anfield, and looked to thank the Liverpool fans for the support shown to him during his spell at the club. He wrote:

“Liverpool has been such a big part of my life and my family’s lives for so long that leaving is extremely difficult.

“I’ll start by saying that Liverpool fans constantly keep surprising me. Since the news broke about the transfer, I have received so many positive messages and well-wishing for the future – not just from supporters in Liverpool but across the world.

“My family and I have always felt your backing, it is something unique to this football club, this city and our supporters – it’s been a privilege to have represented this club and I’m forever thankful for everything I have learnt during my time here.

“When I joined this great club, I came here as a 21 year old boy with a lot to learn. Liverpool has helped me grow up and shape me into the man I am today. I’m proud of who I’ve become and I wouldn’t be the person I am today without my time at Liverpool.

“I’ve been honoured to live in this close knit city and my experiences as a Liverpudlian are unforgettable. I’d finally like to wish the club all the best for this season. I’ll be supporting you every step of the way, as will millions of others. You’ll Never Walk Alone.”

Daniel Agger.
