Skrtel coy on Anzhi link

Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel has refused to comment on rumours linking him with Russian Premier League side Anzhi.

The free-spending club from Makhachkala are constantly looking for ways to reinforce what is already a star-studded side, and they are believed to be considering a move for the Slovakian defender.

Skrtel, who has just signed a new long-term deal at Anfield, explains that he is perfectly happy at Liverpool.

“I recently extended my contract with Liverpool and I am very satisfied with it”, the Slovakia international told Russian daily Izvestia. “So, let’s just leave it at that.”

He did, however, confessed that the Russian Premier League has progressed a great deal since he last played there.

“The level of Russian football has grown incredibly. At least from the days when I played there.

“And now, big transfers which take major players to Russia, for me they are not a surprise.”

Skrtel made a name for himself at Zenit, where he spent three and a half seasons before joining Liverpool in a €10 million deal in January 2007.

The 27-year-old has since made 135 Premier League appearances for the Reds, scoring 6 goals in the process.
