Skrtel has to mark Suarez every day - in training.
"Itâ€™s very difficult to mark him. He is one of the best strikers Iâ€™ve ever played against, and Iâ€™m happy itâ€™s only in training. Other defenders have to do it in matches," confessed Skrtel.
"He is very competitive and tries to beat you in every practice match. He is very hard to play against, and physical. But away from the pitch he is a very good guy, totally different to the person he is on the field.
"He has had some problems in the past but away from the pitch heâ€™s nice. Heâ€™s my neighbour and I socialise with him. He is a family guy, he enjoys having his family around him. His English isnâ€™t the best but he tries to speak some and heâ€™s getting better at that.
