Rafael Benitez claims defender Daniel Agger’s future remains as a centre-back after the 25-year-old deputised at the left side of defence against Fulham at the weekend. Although the Spanish tactician was happy with the Dane’s performance, he is convinced the former Brondby player is still best suited at the heart of defence.

"He is playing as a left-back because we don’t have any options there right now but clearly the future of Daniel Agger at Liverpool is not to play as a left full-back,” Benitez said on the club’s official website. “He has quality, so he can do it – and that’s very positive for the team."

Agger joined The Reds back in 2006, and just last year, signed a new deal that keeps him with the club until 2014.
