Martin Skrtel has come under fire recently because of his bad performances in recent Liverpool game.
The latest has been in the match against Southampton where Liverpool conceded 3 goals following his introduction.
Former Liverpool player John Aldridge has asked Klopp to consider the future of Martin Skrtel. He believes that Liverpool need reinforcement in the defence if they are going to challenge for silverware next season.
Liverpool was leading 2-0 at half-time thanks to goals from Phillipe Coutinho and Daniel Sturridge. But with DejanLovren getting a yellow card in the first half, Jurgen Klopp did not want to take any chance and sent in Martin Skrtel. This was a big mistake given the current form of the defender.
Jurgen Klopp didn’t see anything abnormal in the reaction of Daniel Sturridge when he was asked to come back into the dugout in the previous game versus the Spurs.
Sturridge was not in appreciation of that call of the manager and he didn’t even try to see him eye to eye as he passed him while on his way back.
It, however, did not leave Klopp in any sort of annoyance as he could understand what Sturridge was thinking.
Klopp reckons Sturridge is a top striker and he was perhaps of the view that he would fetch the winning goal for his side if he was allowed to remain there and that’s obvious. Any player with that much of talent would feel that way
It’s believed that Jurgen Klopp is going to be given a transfer kitty of around £100 million so that the German coach can reinforce his squad any way that he wants to.
There are a number of players which are in the radar of Jurgen Klopp and with this substuantually high budget, the owners of the Premier League club are hoping that the squad will be better than before and start aiming for the league title.
Some time ago, it was confirmed that Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney had gone through a hair transplant as the Englishman was tired of being bald.
It seems like Liverpool’s Martin Skrtel was experiencing the same disgust of not having hair and the Slovenian player was recently seen with a full head of hair.
Martin Skrtel has been suffering from a hamstring injury which has kept him out of the playing field since December of 2015 and he wasn’t able to play a single competitive match for Liverpool in January but he is expected to be fully recovered and ready to come back to the pitch.
Claudio Ranieri reckons winning against Stoke at home was critical for the Foxes as they are going into a tough schedule of games where they have to face the Reds, the Gunners and the Sky Blues in succession.
Beating Stoke means that Leicester is leading the points table by some margin now and even if they drop some points against the big boys in the coming games, it would still keep them in the title race.
On the other hand, if they had not fetched full points on Saturday evening, it would not have left them in that strong a position moving forward. So, Ranieri was a happy man with the positive result that was achieved at the King Power Stadium.
Jurgen Klopp does not want to make his big boys vulnerable to injury by exhausting them too much and he has hinted that he would be using the inexperienced youth to play the Hammers tomorrow.
After a long time, the Hammers have got the better of Liverpool on two occasions in the Premiership this season, but, it doesn’t seem as if Klopp is too upset by that and is willing to push extra to avenge those two losses. The German has no such intentions and he is in a mood to keep his main players out of the coming match.
Steven Gerrard has begun a new chapter in his life after having spent over 25 years playing for Liverpool, the veteran midfielder made his debut performance for the MLS as he performed for 45 minutes in a friendly match which witnessed LA Galaxy taking a 2-1 victory over Club America in a match where Gerrard had his ups and downs.
There were some instances during this match when Gerrard made some minor slip ups and one of these occasions arrived at the 18th minute as the English midfielder received a pass from his teammate near the goalpost of LA Galaxy but Gerrard failed to clear it away from danger and this allowed Club America on having a goal-scoring chance but it eventually ended in nothing.
Manchester United star Michael Carrick is one of the most experienced player in the squad.
However, he is aware of the intense competition for places – especially in the midfield – in wake of the recent signings made by the club. United have brought in names like Morgan Schneiderlin and Bastian Schweinsteiger during the summer. This coupled with the existing names like Ander Herrera means that Carrick may find it difficult to be a first-team regular at Old Trafford. The England international is not in danger of losing his first-team spot all together since manager Louis van Gaal sees him as an important member even now.
Defender Martin Skrtel has rejected the offer of a new contract from Liverpool by claiming that it was not what he expected.
The Slovakian has become one of the Premier League’s top defenders over the last few years. It is an unimaginable improvement from the player, who made a shaky start in his first few matches for the club. Skrtel maybe a top name in his business, but it is thought that Liverpool will listen to offers for the player. He has been constantly linked with clubs like Napoli – and even Manchester United – in the last few months.
A number of Liverpool players appear to be on the verge of exit the club alongside Steven Gerrard. One of the names on this list is defender Martin Skrtel, who has been a regular first-team player for the club for more than five years.
The Slovakian has not only helped the club in the defensive area, but he also contributes heavily by scoring goals at the other end. However, he appears to have fallen out with manager Brendan Rodgers over his indifferent performances this season. There have been times when Skrtel has looked extremely shaky and this has cost him a place in the starting line-up.
