Martin Skrtel set to leave Liverpool FC
Martin Skrtel has been at Anfield since 2008 although it appears that the Slovakian defender might have played his final match for Liverpool.

The 28-year-old has struggled for game time under Brendan Rodgers after a shaky start to the season which saw him concede a penalty during a 3-0 defeat against West Brom, with the player admitting that his future might lie away from Merseyside.
Skrtel said: “I have not had any specific offers but if some should come and they interest me, I would probably consider it seriously. The club has the biggest say in this in any case, because they have the right for it with me being contracted. I am not saying that I want to leave at any cost. I feel sorry for what happened in this season. But I have been here for five and a half years and I have built a position here.
Skrtel added: “It was one of the worst seasons in my career and certainly the worst during my time at Liverpool. After the game at Manchester United, the coach decided he wanted to change the team and justified to me that we lacked the organisation and defensive leadership personality. That was Carragher.
“Obviously I was not happy, it bugged me. On the other hand, I realise that only 11 can play and the 11 the coach chooses now is without me. I decided to add even more in training, so I was ready for a chance to show that I belong on the field, and not on the pitch.”
It appears that with the arrival of Kolo Toure and Kyriakos Papadopoulos set to arrive at Anfield, Skrtel could be heading to another European club this summer.
