(GSM) – Daniel Agger has criticised Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson for his football philosophy.
Agger remained on the bench for the last two matches with Hodgson opting for Jamie Carragher and Martin Skrtel at the heart of Liverpool’s defense. And the Danish defender would prefer to stay on the bench if he’s pushed to adapt the playing style of his new coach.
“I like to keep the ball on the ground and I’m going to keep doing that,” said Agger. “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.”
