“I am definitely confident I can come back stronger. I know I say this every time, but I have really done everything this time to make every single muscle in my body stronger and I have done everything in the right way. If I could do something to make sure I wouldn’t get injured again, I would do it no matter what it was.”
Agger’s current injury is due to a knock in his tendon behind his knee but the Dane has had his fair share of other injuries since his arrival at the club in 2006. The Reds defence is noticeably less assured in the absence of Agger, but this has been the case more often than not this season as a succession of injuries have kept the 26 year old sidelined. The Dane believes a good pre-season will give him the opportunity to recover and not have to rush back into first team training:
“The important thing for me is that I have pre-season to look forward to and I am not in a rush now. That’s been the problem the last few times I have been injured – I’ve been in a rush to get back. I’d come back early but would get a new injury. It’s really good for me now that I have all the way until pre-season to get ready.”
Hopefully the Sports Science team can help in this regard too. Earlier on in the season when he suffered calcification in a bone in his ankle, Agger began to seriously question whether his body was made for the rigours for the Premier League. The constant injury battles that have plagued the Dane, have also been suffered by Fabio Aurelio, and neither have yet to really feel the benefits of the new Sports Science and Medical Department set up last summer.
