Daniel Agger has been with his hometown club for the last 12 months and he has seen sufficient improvement in Brøndby to suggest that the club will be near the top of the table in the upcoming campaign.
The Danish club have been disadvantage of being involved in the Europa League from as early as in the first week of July. Since last season, the Danish league has been stripped of the automatic Champions League spots due to the low coefficients. Even title winners Midtjylland will have to go through the qualifying phase in order to reach the group stages.
Brøndby just managed to squeeze into the final Europa League spot. As a result, their matches start with an early qualifying round against Juvenes or Dogana. A recent friendly against Falkenberg finished in a 1-0 win. Agger has admitted that one of the primary reasons for the team finishing in the third place was the inconsistent form during autumn. He says that ifBrøndby overcome this, then they could be in for a runners up or even potential title challenging position. Agger has also dismissed suggestions that he is in need of a slightly larger break. He says that he is used to having only four weeks off from his time in the Premier League.
“We have shown our potential this spring and many of the young people have shown improvement. If we are to prosper again in the next season, we supply as this spring. We need to be stable. We had many fluctuations in the autumn, but has gotten the hang of it this spring. I feel we are moving in the right direction. If we can deliver as we have done in the spring over an entire season, as we get closer to the top teams,” said Agger.
