Skrtel: I am not going anywhere


Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel has denied reports linking him with a move away from the Merseyside club. He told TMW:

“I read in the past of some interest in me by an Italian team, but it was only negotiations made by the newspapers. In fact, I never spoke with any Italian club. I don’t know if Wolfsburg is true or not, this came from a newspaper, so I can not say anything, but as I said I have a contract with Liverpool, I’m happy here and I do not think other teams. . . I signed a new contract which will expire in 2014 precisely because I am happy and well, I’m glad to be part of one of the biggest clubs in the world. I like everything here. The fans and the city. I dreamed of playing in England and the dream became reality. Liverpool is a great club, so if they are happy with my work I will play here a long time.”

Skrtel also talked about the departure of Fernando Torres:

“There was nothing special, no particular reaction. You know, football is like this, the players change teams, so he chose to go to Chelsea and we can only wish him the best for his career.”


This week it is former LFC WAG Jennifer Metcalfe!

    What a fantastic attitude, a very refreshing change from what we went through with torres. Skrtel’s instant reaction to the rumors is what others should also do if they are committed to LFC. Skrtel is a player I liken to Jamie Carragher, they may not possess all the silky skills but what they do have is loyalty, pride, a steely determination, a die hard willingness to put their bodies on the line and get stuck in where others may flinch. Skrtel is still young but goes about his business on the field in a very accomplished fashion. I for one am glad to see him wear our famous red strip.

    he is a good player just been off and on this year, before his injury at man city a season or so back, he was great, think he would benefit form a regular partner at the back, this year he has played with everyone and anyone.

    For me if we are going to build a strong team and squad then we must keep carragher, skrtel agger and soto, and add another tall, strong young, quick center half, like sakho or hummel, cahill is just not worth 20 mill.

    liverpool have wilson, he is not ready, nor is ayala, there good but can learn a bit more, we need a more power house at the back.

  • Kenny says:

    Liverpool have Carragher who cannot head the ball offensively or defensively, they cannot afford to waste more time on Skrtel who has the same failings. Anyteam looking to win the title needs to have their centrebacks a threat from setpieces offensively and to be commanding in the air defensively and neither Skrtel or Carragher can do that. Sell Skrtel to Wolfsburg in return for Simon Kjaer to play alongside Agger.

    I’m not happy with his work and I hopped that the people that matter arent either – the guy has to move on asap!
