Danish soccer star Daniel Agger says he is excited to return to Anfield as he teams up with Liverpool legends against Real Madrid legends.


The retired 32-year old defender returns to play for Liverpool FC Foundation on Saturday.

Agger, who has the club in his blood and on his skin – considering that he inked the abbreviation of the club’s ‘YNWA’ anthem across his knuckles –, played for almost nine years at the Merseyside before he exited the team after a brief stint at his boyhood club Brondby where he joined from in 2006.

“I’m always happy to be back here. It’s really an experience. It’s so difficult to explain what being here means to me, because I can never really put the feeling into words,” the passionate Agger told Goal.

“Quickly, it was like I belonged, and the longer you’re in a place that suits you, the more it gets under your skin and becomes a part of you. The people, the place, just everything about it felt right, which is why I stayed here for almost nine years,” Agger added. Continue reading DANIEL AGGER ON RETURN TO LIVERPOOL

New Manchester United manager is prepared to give players such as Juan Mata, MarouaneFellaini, and Daley Blind chances during the pre-season to prove themselves.


Indeed, the Portuguese manager is keen to build a team that will be able to challenge for trophies next season and before trying to get new faces in the team, he would want to give chances to the current players.

Many pundits thought that Jose Mourinho would be keen to get rid of Juan Mata since he was the one that allowed him to move to Manchester United from Chelsea. It is believed that the manager wants to give him an opportunity to prove himself first before deciding on his future.

This will be good news for Juan Mata as he wanted to have reassurances from Jose Mourinho that he will still form part of the team. However, it is believed that player will spend more time on the bench as there is no guarantee that he will form part of the first team. Indeed, Jose Mourinho believes that Juan Mata is only good when it comes to attacking and may be a weak link when it comes to defending. It is expected that the player will be playing more in matches against weaker opposition.

Craig Gordon is a 32 year old Scottish shot-stopper who has been affected by injuries on numerous occasions during his playing career.  The first top European club that Craig Gordon joined was Sunderland as he signed with the English team in August of 2007 and penned a 5 year long contract but he had to miss out from several months of playing time due to a knee injury and this allowed Simon Mignolet in becoming the first choice goal-keeper of Sunderland.

Knee injuries have not been the only physical condition that he has suffered from as he also broke his arm with Sunderland which forced him to miss out from the start of the 2010-11 Premier League season.

His ongoing problems with injuries have also constrained the Scottish footballer on making a limited amount of performances in the international stage for his country.

Going through rehabilitation is not something new for Craig Gordon as he has gone through a few surgeries in order to heal the injuries that he has sustained and the experienced goal-keeper has even stated that at one point in time his kids even asked him what did he do for a living, since he was out of action for so long.

‘’They have stood by me and they have supported me for two whole years when I wasn’t working.When I was concentrating fully on getting back into football, it must have been a hard thing for them to have to deal with.’’

“They were so young they 
never really knew what daddy did for a living. They were a big part of my inspiration to get back to top-level football. I wanted to show them what their daddy used to do!’’ Celtic’s Craig Gordon said. Continue reading Craig Gordon is a 32 year old Scottish shot-stopper
