Liverpool fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are absolutely livid after Metro revealed that Martin Skrtel has slammed the Reds after ‘unacceptable’ contract negotiations.
This is not the first time the officials at Anfield have made a mess of renewing contracts this season, with Steven Gerrard departing the club, Jordan Henderson initially turning down a deal before signing one and Raheem Sterling still yet to agree a new deal.
But Liverpool fans will hope this is resolved sooner rather than later as it would be suicide to let such a big figure leave the club.
The defender has been one of their most consistent performers and their disappointing season has not affected his form.
With his experience being more valuable than ever, with Gerrard departing the club, Brendan Rodgers cannot afford to lose his leading centre back.
The Slovakian has hinted that the contract offer was made for someone who is older or who has health problems.
He is believed to have said: ‘It’s unacceptable for me. I think that contracts like this offered to players who are much older than me or the player who had some health problems.
‘The contract which has been offered to me is unacceptable, so I did not sign it. I have one year left and there has been some speculation about the interest from other clubs. We will see what happens.’
