Defender wants Reds stay

Liverpool defender Daniel Agger says he has no divine right to a first team place but he's happy to stay as long as he can contribute.

The Denmark centre-half has been out of the side for a month after picking up an injury in the gym and, by his own admission, rushed back too quickly which led to a prolonged absence from the team.

Speculation mounted that the 28-year-old would be on his way if he could not get regular football but he insists he is concentrating on Liverpool and has no intention of moving on.

"It is difficult to describe but I want to play all the time, every single game," he said.

"When you are not playing that is difficult but, while that is sad, I just try to work even harder every single day in training, not complaining just doing everything a bit extra.

"I am more than capable of being in the team - I feel I belong there - but it is the manager's decision and sometimes that is difficult to change in training.

"You need to grab the chance when it is there - that is what football is all about.

"I know I am here and as long as I am doing everything I can to be in that team, and I feel I am good enough and the manager can use me, then I'll be here."
