Liverpool defender Daniel Agger insists he welcomes the competition provided by fellow defenders and will fight for his place.

The Denmark international has been linked with a move away from the club because of a lack of first team football but he has denied he wants a move and claims he welcomes the competition provided by Kolo Toure, Martin Skrtel and Mamadou Sakho.

The 28-year-old says he never complained when he was out of the side and never sought reassurances from boss Brendan Rodgers.

"Competition is what this club has been about and should always be and that is a good thing because we want to win something," he said.

"I'm not the type of player who needs an explanation,

"I just carry on with my thing and try to do everything to get back into the team.

"It's been a bit longer than I hoped for but when you get the chance you need to do everything to keep your place."
