Agger enjoying life under Dalglish

Liverpool defender Daniel Agger is enjoying a new lease of life under Kenny Dalglish.

The Denmark international has been blighted by fitness problems in recent seasons but has started all three Barclays Premier League games this term and is showing good form. The 26-year-old is not only happy to be back in the side but has been energised by Dalglish's approach, his new signings and an unbeaten start to the season.

Agger said: "It is enjoyable, I think everybody will say the same. When you play good football and when things are going the right way, everyone enjoys themselves more."

He added: "For a team like Liverpool, that wants to go forward all the time, it has been so good this year that so many quality players have come in. To make the team stronger we need players like that, we need them all the time. It has been really good and it is a joy to go into Melwood every day to train."

Agger joined Liverpool in 2006 and feels the football they have played this term has been as good as anything he has experienced.

The Reds impressed on Saturday as they swept Bolton aside 3-1 at Anfield.

Agger said: "That is the way we want to play - ever since I joined this club that is the way we want to play. It is not always like that, but if we can keep playing like this I think we can get some points."

After his own fitness problems of the past, Agger feels he is starting to get back towards his best.

He said: "I am getting there but I still think I have a lot more to give. You learn to enjoy every single game when you have been out so long and I am definitely doing that now.

"I love playing football and I want to show that, but I know I have a lot more to give."
