Liverpool centre back Martin Skrtel says he wants to stay at the Merseyside club and will fight for his Anfield place.
Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel is facing a fight to save his Liverpool career but he insists that it’s a fight he’s ready for according to Sky Sports.
The vowel-deficient 28-year-old has fallen behind in the pecking order at Anfield recently with Brendan Rodgers preferring veteran Jamie Carragher ahead of him.
However, with Carragher hanging up his boots at the end of the season, Liverpool have been linked with multiple defenders ahead of the summer with the likes of Ashley Williams, Toby Alderweireld and Modibo Diakite to name but a few.
The Slovakian international has played just one game for the club since the embarrassing FA Cup exit to Oldham in January and that was a 3-1 defeat to Southampton last month. However, Skrtel insists that he still has a part to play at the club and will battle on to regain his place in the team.
“This is what happens in football and this time it was my turn,” he said, “I have to respect it and wait for my chance and I hope my chance will come before the end of the season.
“Those who know me know that I will fight for my place in the team.”
Skrtel has made 31 appearances so far this season.
