Skrtel Signs New Deal

Posted by

Martin Skrtel has put pen to paper on a new long-term contract.

There was speculation that the defender may leave the club but the defender is confident that Brendan Rodgers can make history.

“I have been here almost four-and-a-half years and I have enjoyed that time here – myself and also my family. So there were no questions about whether to stay or to leave”.

“A lot of things have changed, a new manager has come. I think we can start to make history and I want to be a part of that history. “I’m happy because I am a part of one of the biggest clubs in the world”.

The 27-year-old says he can now focus on the new season.

“After last season there was a lot of talk about my future but I have to say that the first priority for me was always to sign a new deal with Liverpool. For me it’s a great thing to play for Liverpool. I am proud to play for Liverpool with these great players – probably some of the best players in the world. I hope I can create history at this club and that the fans will always remember me – that’s my target for the future.”
