Liverpool defender Dan Agger has been named Denmark's Player of the Year for 2007.

He said: "I am extremely proud and honoured to receive this award - not least because it is based on votes from my colleagues."

The former Brondby man enjoyed a fine year alongside Jamie Carragher at the heart of the Reds' defence and played a key role in the club's progress to the final of the UEFA Champions League, scoring the winner in the semi-final second leg victory over Chelsea.
