The furious Kop star raged: "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."
But the centre-half, 25, speaking on a TV show in his native Denmark, added: "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."
