Daniel Agger pleased with Paul Konchesky's imminent arrival at Liverpool from Fulham

Dane delighted with Reds reinforcement...
Liverpool defender Daniel Agger is looking forward to welcoming Paul Konchesky to Anfield once the left-back's move from Fulham is completed.

Agger has filled at left-back this season for manager Roy Hodgson but will be relieved to able to concentrate on his preferred role at centre-back once the Englishman arrives.

“I’ve done the job but it’s not really my place in the team," Agger told the Liverpool Echo.

“The boss knows it and I know it. But as long as the boss wants me to play there, I will do it.

“I won’t complain. I will do the job for the team. If he thinks that I am the best man for that role, I will keep doing it.

“It will be good if and when he [Konchesky] comes in. He is a specialised left-back and I’m not. It all means that it is good for the team.

“We need the competition. It has always been there and it always will be. It will be good for going forward."

Meanwhile, the Dane was pleased with the way in which Hodgson's men dug in and claimed a useful three points against West Bromwich Albion at Anfield on Sunday, Fernando Torres scoring the only goal of the game.

“It was important to get the win and it was a great goal from Fernando. He will only get better and better from now," the Dane added.

"It was a hard day but a good day. We knew it would be tough as West Brom are a good team; luckily we got the three points."

Agger is also fully recovered now from the concussion he sustained following a kick in the head during the opening day draw with Arsenal.

“I remember most of the things about the Arsenal game until I got the kick in the head – after that it is just a blank," he explained.

“I struggled a bit with the concussion and it is only in the last few days that I have started feeling normal again. I’ve had dizziness, headaches; I felt really strange.

“Never in my wildest dreams did I think it would affect me as much as it did; I just wasn’t myself. I felt like I was wandering around in my own world."
