Former Liverpool defender Daniel Agger admits he is missing life at Liverpool more than he thought he would.

The Danish centre back completed a £3million move to Brondby in the summer, and returned to watch his former side beat Swansea 4-1 on Monday evening.

And Agger revealed after the game he is missing life at the club where he spent eight years of his career.

“I miss it more than I expected,” Agger said.

“Just being back in Liverpool, in the city, has been good for me.

“I really miss it and after almost nine years of being here, it is good to be back.”

He added: “I’ve watched almost every game this season.

“It has been up and downs and the league position is not what we would’ve hoped for but the last few weeks have been a bit more positive.”

Agger featured 20 times in the league last season as Liverpool pushed Manchester City all the way in the title race.

Brendan Rodgers’ side have failed to reach those heights this term and Agger says the side “overachieved” last season.

“Losing Luis Suarez, losing your best player, is always going to be difficult for a team.

“And in my opinion, we maybe overachieved a bit last season. Everybody played a bit better than we might.

“Everything came up to a higher level and after the second place of last season, expectations go up and it’s always difficult.”
