Liverpool have been boosted by the news this morning that defender Martin Skrtel has committed to the club until at least 2014, by signing a new contract at Anfield.
The Slovakia international signed from Russian side Zenit St Petersburg for £6million in January 2008 and is now a regular face in the Reds starting line-up.
The deal he signs is a two year extension to his current deal, which was due to expire in 2012.
“We have quality in the dressing room and I know we will do better this year.
“Everyone plays football to win trophies. Playing for Liverpool is a big motivation for everyone and we will do everything we can to win the Premier League. We have the highest targets – to win everything.”
