Skrtel responds to Knox knocks


Recommended Posts



Martin Skrtel hopes he can take over Sami Hyypia's mantle of goalscoring centre-back in the coming years - even though he has yet to break his Liverpool duck.


The Slovakia international has scored five goals for his country but has yet to find the net in 50 Liverpool appearances.


"I haven't scored but I hope to change this," Skrtel told Liverpoolfc.tv.


"For me the first job is to protect our own goal. Any goals I score is something extra. But I hope next season I can get some goals."


Meanwhile, Skrtel admits he was disappointed at news Hyypia will leave for Bayer Leverkusen this summer.


"For me, I'll miss Sami because he is a big person and a big player," said the No.37. "He has helped me a lot. Whenever I've needed something I could go to Sami and ask him. He'd always help me.


"But now he's finished here after 10 years - like I say he'll be missed.


"He is a very good player. To play here for 10 years is incredible. Before I came here I could see on television how good he was. I already knew he was a really good player with quality. He still is now.


"I wish him all the best at his next club."
