Liverpool boss Dalglish: Agger as good as any defender in country

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish feels Dan Agger is as good as any defender in England.

Dalglish feels he has all the attributes to make him a stand-out performer for the Reds and is hoping his injury problems are now a thing of the past.

"Daniel's a fantastic player but it wasn't just down to Daniel that we've had two clean sheets," said Dalglish. "He's a fantastic player and he's probably as good as anyone else in his position in the Barclays Premier League.

"He's comfortable in possession and he's a very good defender as well.

"He's a top defender, a top player. He played left-back for us at Stoke as well and did very well.

"It's great to have him back and I hope his fitness remains as it is for a long time."
