Martin Skrtel is happy with his new deal at Liverpool - and to play for manager Brendan Rodgers.

Skrtel was signed from Zenit in January 2008 and has made 175 appearances for the Reds to date.

He and his family are happy with their life away from the pitch, and the Slovakia international is confident new boss Brendan Rodgers can ensure he stays equally content with matters on it.

"I have been here almost four and a half years and I have enjoyed that time here - myself and also my family," Skrtel told liverpoolfc.com. "So there were no questions about whether to stay or to leave.

"A lot of things have changed, a new manager has come. I think we can start to make history and I want to be a part of that history.

"We have our target. For this season it is the top four and I hope we can do it. Then we will see.

"I think Brendan Rodgers showed his quality with Swansea and now he's carrying on doing that at Liverpool. He's showed he's a great manager and I hope we can play better football than we did in the last seasons and I hope we can get our target."
