Skrtel: Liverpool Offer is ‘Unacceptable’

Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel described his new contract offer from the club as “unacceptable”, while adding that the reason the club struggled this season was the loss of Luis Suarez. It was reported last month that talks over a new deal had stalled after Liverpool included a clause relating to number of games he must play each season. It is revealed he has not signed a new deal with the club as the current contract on offer is unacceptable.

Liverpool were confident of wrapping up the contract before the end of the season, but it’s understood Skrtel has to play a high number of games, possibly as many as 80 percent, to qualify for his full salary.

The 30-year-old, who took to Instagram on Wednesday to share an image on the physiotherapy table preparing for Slovakia’s Euro 2016 qualifier against Macedonia, is uneasy with the current offer so did not sign it. Skrtel was quoted by Slovakian website Akualne in an interview that casts doubt over his future with the Anfield club.

He suggested he is frustrated by the terms of the new deal he has been offered by Liverpool, with the 30-year-old’s current deal set to expire in the summer of 2016. “I think that such contracts offered to players who are much older than me or the player who had some health problems. And I don’t feel so old that I could sign such an agreement,” he said.

The central defender, who is one of the top earners at the club, was thought to be close to agreeing a new deal. His current contract expires in the summer of 2016. Skrtel’s discontent with the terms of the deal being offered to him by Liverpool could surprise many of the club’s supporters. The Slovakian central defender is now one of the more senior players in Brendan Rodgers’ squad following the departure of long-time captain Steven Gerrard.

“There has been some speculation about the interest of other clubs for my person, but they are currently being addressed,” added Skrtel.

Meanwhile, Skrtel admitted his side had fallen well short of their ambitions. “We failed because we did not meet the targets we have set,” added the Slovakian international. “If we finish in fifth or sixth, it does not matter, we would still not qualified for the Champions League. The significant factor was the exit of Luis Suarez to Barcelona last summer and too many errors on the field.”
