Daniel Agger admits it would have been a 'big mistake' if he had left Liverpool.
The Dane recently ended speculation over his future by signing a new five-year deal at Anfield.
Agger, who was strongly linked with a move to AC Milan prior to signing his new contract, believes the future is bright at Liverpool after pushing Manchester United all the way for the title this season.
"I've agreed a contract, the manager has agreed a new contract, Steven Gerrard, Dirk Kuyt and some other players are all agreeing contracts," Agger told the club's official magazine.
"So I think this shows you that within the club there is a real sense that we are building towards something special.
"Everyone wants to be successful, everyone wants to be part of it. If you don't, then I think you're making a big mistake.
"There is a lot that we should be proud of this season and we are."
