Liverpool defender Skrtel: No slacking off during offseason

Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel says he hasn't been slacking off during the close-season.

Skrtel has assured fans he's been keeping himself ticking over in readiness for preseason.

"I am still relaxing but it is not just sitting next to the pool," he told his official website.

"I need to be fit for the upcoming season so I do train every day. I am with my girlfriend every day but I also go to the gym daily. I also use my bike a lot because I need to stay in good shape.

"My holidays are nearly over and it was great to be with my family again. I stayed out of football for a while but now I am in the middle of a strict regime.

"I also played with my friends from the national team in a charity match and it was great fun to be with them again. I will be heading to Liverpool soon and I hope this season will be a huge success."
