Skrtel determined to keep improving for Liverpool

Martin Skrtel feels happy with the progress he has made as a player at Liverpool over the last year-and-a-half.

The 27-year old Slovakian centre-back is fast-becoming one of the best centre-backs in the competition with solid performances for the Reds and he puts it down to being more experienced.

However, Skrtel is not about to rest on what he has done this season and is determined to continue getting better as player.

"For the last few months I have been pleased with my performances," he said.

"There is no reason for it. I have just tried to do my best and not put too much pressure on myself.

"It helps that the team is doing well too. When the team is playing at a high level, it gives everybody confidence to reach their levels.

"Experience has a lot to do with it. As you get older you learn how to deal with success and failure and I feel a lot more confident in my ability to make the right decisions.

"In the last 18 months a lot has changed and I think everybody agrees that it has changed for the better.

"Nobody is complete. You see players older than me trying to get better and that inspires you."
