The Liverpool defender and Scary Monster Martin Skrtel is feeling insulted by the new contract on offer at Anfield and could be leaving the club this summer. The Slovakian hardman may be 30 years old but he has seemed to improve with age, and has today admitted that he would be willing to move to any other club except the Scouser’s biggest enemy Manchester United.
Skrtel made his displeasure with Liverpool public when he was reported as saying: “It’s unacceptable for me. I think that such contracts are offered to players who are much older than me or players who have had some health problems.
“The contract, which was presented to me, makes me uneasy, so I did not sign it.
“There has been some speculation about the interest of other clubs for my person, but they are currently being addressed.”
I would certainly not be upset if Arsenal brought in such a big player with all his experience. He has been practically ever-present for Liverpool for the last five years and is very rarely injured. He is 6ft 3in, strong and very scarey! If Liverpool are not prepared to offer him a proper contract then we have the perfect position for him at Arsenal. With Koscielny’s well-known Achilles problems and BFG’s fluctuating form, it would be great to have such a safe centre-back to come in as cover. And don’t anyone dare suggest he is over the hill at 30, just look at John Terry!
