Agger praises Brendan Rodgers but didn`t feel valued.

The Denmark international has praised Brendan Rodgers as an “incredibly talented manager” regardless of having his differences with the Liverpool manager.

Daniel Agger returned to Brondby in the summer after being a bit-part player due to injuries and also struggled to convince the Northern Irishman’s managerial at Anfield.

The 29-year-old revealed his frustration at being left out from the team but had nothing but praise for the Brenden`s ability.

Agger told TV3 Sport: “I think he is an incredibly talented manager,”

“You can’t take that away from him. He’s good in the way he trains and he is clever in the way he sets the team up.

“He’s an extremely, extremely competent coach.”

“The things that went wrong between us is that I say things the way they are and I expect others to treat me the same way.

“Maybe it is wrong to always expect this.”

Daniel Agger also said how frustrated he was for being dropped for no reason after playing few successive games last season.

Agger said: “When you are a part of the starting eleven for several games in a row and the team have performed well, and you feel that you have played well, then you are left out of the team and don’t feel appreciated, it starts to get pray on your mind and you wonder,”

“Then at the same time you see the statistics from your game – which are so important all around the world of football- and you don’t understand why you weren’t used more often.”
