Double Joy For Skrtel

It’s been a great start to the week for Martin Skrtel as the Liverpool defender clinched his second award in as many days after being voted Slovakian Player of the Year.

Skrtel beat Italian-based opposition in the form of Napoli’s impressive attacking midfielder Marek Hamsik, as well as Genoa’s Juraj Kucka in the voting, making it the third time Liverpool’s number 37 has won the award.

Just hours earlier, Skrtel had played a huge part in helping Liverpool win their first title in 6 years, scoring in the League Cup final victory over Cardiff City at Wembley. It was Skrtel’s first piece of silverware with Reds, whom he joined in 2008 after winning the UEFA Cup with Zenit St. Petersburg.

“I think everybody plays football for the trophies and that was our first one and I hope there will be more and more.” Skrtel commented after the drama of winning in the penalty shoot-out.

Jimmy Areabi (Editor) - @fantasista1077: Huyton raised like Steven Gerrard, football has been my passion since the time I received a Kenny Dalglish badge as a toddler, and I've followed the Reds ever since – something that was easier during the 80s, when I worshipped John Barnes! I've produced work for many football media outlets & am now happy to run a major site on the club I love - providing our fans with a voice, and to bring as much information and news on the club as possible.
Having played football all my life, I aim to continue longer than Stanley Matthews...

    Well done Rafa, £6.5 million now worth £20 million and proving it, the doubters are very quiet.

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Skrtel! On Sunday we saw Liverpool’s Skrtel power!

  • David Tyrer says:

    That is great news for Martin and the club. I can see how that the comparisons I’ve made between him and Sami are not at all unfounded, as Hyypia himself won half a dozen of these during his career and Skrtel’s already got three himself. Great stuff
