Daniel Agger denies criticising Roy Hodgson


Liverpool's Danish defender Daniel Agger has denied making comments questioning the style of play introduced by new Reds manager Roy Hodgson this season.

The 25-year-old was quoted as saying that Hodgson had introduced a long-ball style of play which did not suit him and even hinted that he would consider leaving Anfield.

However, later in the day Agger told his club's official website:"I am very disappointed with the papers in Denmark for the way they have done this story.

"I spoke to Danish TV after the game on Sunday and answered the questions that were put to me. I didn't speak to the papers. What came out was 100 per cent wrong and that is why I am very disappointed.

"What I don't understand is that it was only a few days ago when I spoke to the media ahead of the Steaua Bucharest game.

"I think I said everybody at the club was happier now with the new manager, the new players and the new methods.

"It's strange to read this just a few days later, but that's the way the media works, especially in Denmark.

"They don't have much to write about, so they look for every little thing and try to make a big sensation out of it."
