Skrtel wants to see evidence of ambition before signing new Liverpool contract

Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel will delay signing a new contract at Anfield until he sees evidence the club is moving in the right direction and can qualify for the Champions League, the Liverpool Echo has reported.



Skrtel has two years remaining on his current deal and while the newspaper insists rumours the Slovakian has put in a transfer request are false, the player’s agent has said his client wants to play in the Champions League and will discuss his future with the club over the summer, stressing the need to compete in the Champions League.


Karol Csonto added: “You cannot say Liverpool won’t play in the Champions League…because they haven’t made it this year doesn’t mean they would not next…[Skrtel] wants to know what the aims and ambitions are. We want to discuss with Liverpool what they want…we will discuss the issue of Martin’s contract.


Skrtel, 27, moved to Merseyside from Zenit St Petersburg of Russia in 2008 in a transfer the Echo values at £6.5m. This season the centre-back made 45 appearances for Kenny Dalglish’s side, scoring four goals, and helped the Reds to victory in the Carling Cup final and also played in the FA Cup final defeat to Chelsea.

I think hes right to ask for evidence, with the current side theres no way they can finish top 6 next year, and kenny shouldnt be allowed to have final say on signings as proved with this year's terrible set of signings. you cant hold it against skrtel

If Skrtel is really stalling on a new contract with Liverpool for he reasons given, I personally see this as a big insult to a great club. Bill Shankly will be turning in his grave.
