Daniel Agger, currently in charge of Danish 2nd tier club HB Køge, is said to be on a short list of candidates to replace Kolo Toure who recently joined Wigan as their new manager.
Brendan Rodgers knows Agger (37) from their days at Anfield and Liverpool. The fact that Lars Knudsen recently joined Leicester to be their set-piece coach could also lead to a closer relation between the Danes to keep a good mood in the coaching camp.
Daniel Agger left Liverpool to rejoin Brøndby in 2014. After two years back at the club he decided to retire from football, to be able to concentrate on his businesses. He moved to Spain, but he was lured back to the game being named player coach of HB Køge.
The report from Denmark is saying this link is soft and that Daniel Agger are in no hurry of moving to a new destination. But still interest from Premier League will not be overlooked if an approach should be made.
Alan Tate, currently assistant at Nottingham Forest and with a former relation to Brendan Rodgers from their days at Swansea, is said to be another candidate the club considers. Leicester U.21 boss Ben Petty and Senior Scout Sean St. Ledgers are other names mentioned in the story as possible candidates.
Kolo Toure had been working with Brendan Rodgers since their days together at Celtic and of course a loss for Leicester as the former Arsenal, Man City and Liverpool defender did have his special qualities.
We will wait and see what Leicester will do as they have not made any public talk on how they will approach the situation and replace the vacant position as first team coach.
