Advocaat: Liverpool signing Skrtel big blow for Zenit

Zenit St Petersburg coach Dick Advocaat admits the sale of Martin Skrtel to Liverpool is a big loss to the club.

"Skrtel's departure is a great loss for our club since Martin is a young and talented player who is capable of growing professionally," Advocaat told Sport Express.

"Speaking about his move to one of the strongest championships in the world, there is no sense in trying to keep Skrtel in St Petersburg."
