Skrtel: I would consider a move away from Liverpool

The 28-year-old admits that, though he has yet to receive any offers from other clubs, he would think about leaving the club if Brendan Rodgers deems it necessary

Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel admits he would strongly consider a move away from Anfield if the right offer came in this summer.

The centre-back has been out of favour with manager Brendan Rodgers since the turn of the year, having made just four Premier League starts in 2013, with the now-retired Jamie Carragher preferred alongside Daniel Agger in the centre of defence.

The Slovakian international signed a new contract only last summer but appears ready to move on, though he also made it clear that he has yet to receive any specific offers.

“I have not had any specific offers. But if some should come and they interest me, I would probably ponder it seriously,” he told Slovakian newspaper Dennik Sport.

“The club has the biggest say in this in any case, because they have the right for it with me being contracted.”

Skrtel moved to Liverpool from Zenit St. Petersburg in 2008 and has since amassed 206 appearances for the Merseyside club – a stay that he insists he is in no great hurry to end.

“I do not want to be that specific, I am not saying that I want to leave at any cost,” he continued.

“I feel sorry for what happened in this season. But I have been here for five-and-a-half years and I have built a position here.”
