New Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson faces mutiny just weeks into his tenure after defender Daniel Agger went public with criticism of his management. The Denmark international voiced concerns at being played at left-back, being left out of the team and the team’s style of play under Hodgson to a TV crew from his homeland.
He said: “I like to keep the ball on the ground and I’m going to keep doing that. The manager has a philosophy we’re playing football further up the pitch and you have to play a different kind of football at the back.
“But I’m not going to be a player that unloads the ball every single time I get it. Whether he’ll use me or not, time will tell. I’ll fight for my chance but I know what I represent, and I think he also knows that.
“Our play has changed but I’m not going to adjust 100 per cent.”
OTP would suggest that this won’t do Agger’s prospects of more first team football any good at all (you have to use Twitter for that to be effective).
