Skrtel has started the last five matches and has impressed, with the Reds' new-look back-three bolstered by the gradual improvement of summer signing Sakho from Paris St Germain.
"He is still young but he's an experienced player. He's a French international and he's played many games for PSG," Skrtel told LFC TV.
"In the games he has started he has shown how good he is, he's fitted into the team well and he's doing well at the moment.
"I'm happy for him and happy for the team because he is a good player for us. I just hope things carry on this way."
