Liverpool hero Thommo: Skrtel impact as big as Torres

Liverpool hero Phil Thompson rates the impact made by Martin Skrtel alongside Reds star Fernando Torres.

Skrtel will be on the sidelines for three months after suffering a knee injury last week and Thommo told liverpoolfc.tv: "I just love Skrtel.

"He has made a real impression at the club. People talk about Fernando Torres, but this lad could be a real gem.

"It's how he plays the game which impresses me. No matter if we're playing Stoke City or Manchester United, he gives everything he has in terms of commitment and passion.

"He's good in the air, quick, strong and he doesn't hold any of his opponents in high esteem. He is there to win for the club and I think our fans have tapped into that."
