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

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.

“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

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.
