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.

“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

Arsenal defender Calum Chambers says that he is extremely happy with his first season at the club.

The young England star moved to Arsenal from Southampton in a £ 16 million deal, which raised a few eyebrows since he was yet to prove at the very top level. Still just 20 years old, it is expected that he has a long time to go before he reaches the peak of his career. However, he has impressed everyone at the Emirates stadium sufficiently after just 12 months at the club. Chambers had to be utilised in a number of positions last season due to the injuries and suspensions.

Even though he is primarily a rightback, Chambers showed last season that he is equally good at playing as a central defender. It is expected that he will replace Per Mertesacker or Laurent Koscielny if he continues on this kind of form. He made 28 appearances in all competitions and scored one goal. More importantly, his performances helped Arsenal capture the FA Cup for a second consecutive campaign. One of priorities for Chambers next season will be to avoid the niggling injuries that troubled him last season. The 20-year-old did not feature for Arsenal after the win over Burnley in April.
