Skrtel admits considering Liverpool departure

Martin Skrtel admits he considered his Liverpool future over the summer.

Skrtel is back as first-choice centre-half having spent five months on the bench last season. It forced him to consider his future before deciding to give it one last go on Merseyside.

"Obviously, I thought about everything at the end of last season when I didn't play. I had a bad season, I made mistakes and was put on the bench. It wasn't easy," said the 28-year-old who was at the launch of Need for Speed Rivals on PS4.

"One option was to leave but my family had settled and I liked the club and the city so it's not easy to say you will go.

"I said to myself I'd fight for my position and do everything possible in pre-season to get back into the team. That was my target and I'm happy I've done it."
