Liverpool defender Daniel Agger has been voted Danish Player of the Year.
The centre-back was handed the honour at a ceremony staged by the Danish Football Association (DBU).
It is the second time that the former Brondby man has picked up the accolade, with the first occasion coming in 2007, when Agger helped Liverpool reach the Champions League final.
While he had a disappointing year with Liverpool in the Premier League during 2011/12, he did collect silverware, picking up the League Cup, while the Reds also reached the FA Cup final.
At international level Agger was part of the Denmark side at Euro 2012 and formed a solid partnership with Simon Kjaer at the heart of the defence.
Elsewhere at the DBU awards, promising defender Jores Okore was named Talent of the Year.
The 20-year-old currently turns out for Danish champions FC Nordsjaelland and has featured in the Champions League this season.
