Liverpool hero Stephane Henchoz has hailed the form of Martin Skrtel this season.

The Slovakia defender won Liverpool's Player of the Year.

Henchoz told liverpoolfc.tv: "I think he had a great season. He was one of the best performers for Liverpool. He's good. He's fast, he's strong and he can score goals from set-pieces which is very important. He's also very comfortable on the ball, so that makes him a good defender."
