Daniel Agger: Struggling to come to terms with FA Cup final defeat
Liverpool defender Daniel Agger has revealed he is still reeling from the disappointment of FA Cup final defeat.
Chelsea beat the Reds 2-1 on the way to their seventh FA Cup triumph and Agger admits he is still coming to terms with the fact he is in possession of a losers' medal.
But the Denmark defender is determined to end the season on a positive note, starting with Tuesday's Premier League clash against - of all teams - Chelsea.
"There's not much more to say right now. We are all just so disappointed," he told the club's official website.
"We have got two games left in the season and we have got to try and win them. That is how we will start to move forward. It is difficult right now to think about anything else.
"When you get into an FA Cup final, you really want to win it. Nobody ever remembers the runners-up. Nobody likes to be a loser."
Despite only having a Carling Cup win to show for their efforts this season, Agger believes Liverpool can be a force again.
The 27-year-old added: "Can we challenge the top teams next season? Yes, of course. We have moved forward a lot this season but right now the only feelings are of disappointment."
