Liverpool stalwart considering future following lack of first-team football

Skrtel

Reports from ESPN claiming Martin Skrtel is considering his future at Liverpool have had Reds fans in the Transfer Tavern cast their minds back to better times with the Slovakian.

The defender has been a stalwart on Merseyside ever since arriving from Zenit St. Petersburg in 2008, making over 250 appearances for the club and winning the League Cup in 2011.

However, injuries and a dip in form have seen him lose his place to the likes of Mamadou Sakho, Dejan Lovren and Kolo Toure in the heart of Jurgen Klopp’s defence.

He’s made just one league appearance in 2016 since the 3-0 loss away at Watford in December and is said to be weighing up his options.

The 31-year old only penned a new deal at Anfield last summer but there has since been a change in management, with Klopp replacing Brendan Rodgers back in October.

Since, the German has drafted in Joel Matip, another centre-back, on a pre-contract agreement ahead of a summer move from Bundesliga outfit Schalke once his contract expires.

A number of Premier League clubs are said to be monitoring his situation with just a few months left until the transfer window bursts open again.

Have Liverpool moved on from Skrtel? Or does he have a future?
