Daniel Agger


The Danish captain has been plagued by injuries during his time in Liverpool. In 2009, his back got so bad that he thought about quitting football.

His back is completely covered by a giant tattoo with things such as the Latin proverb “Mors Certa, Hora Incerta” across the top of his back, meaning “Death is certain, its hour is not” and inscriptio­ns on his ankles along the lines of “Pain is temporary, victory is forever”.
