Denmark coach Morten Olsen is trusting Daniel Agger to resolve his lack of first team football at club level, otherwise he feels he will have a frustrated and irritated captain on his hands.
Agger has fallen down the defensive pecking order at Liverpool, slipping behind Martin Skrtel and Mamadou Sakho. It led to the Dane watching on from the bench during the business end of the Premier League season as Liverpool finished second.
Agger has admitted that he cannot live with not playing for Liverpool and hinted at a possible change of scenery. But Olsen will not push for his captain to leave Anfield.
"I won't ask Daniel about [it]", the Denmark national team coach was quoted as saying by Bold.
"He can best gauge how it looks now and, more important, in the next season."
However, Olsen is sure that the Denmark skipper should command a spot in Liverpool's starting eleven and believes that if he is continually on the fringes it will not sit well with his defensive talisman.
"But of course he should be playing.
"Otherwise, I also believe we will have a frustrated and irritated captain.
"I hope he will make the right choice", the Denmark coach concluded.
Agger will receive some welcome playing time in Denmark's upcoming international friendlies against Hungary and Sweden, with Olsen sure to trust in his skipper.
