Martin Skrtel claims to have given no thought to leaving Liverpool over the summer
Skrtel told SITA: “I’m staying at Liverpool. The rumours were never as strong as it was made out.
“There has been no contact with other clubs because the Liverpool management told me that they were counting on me. That is why a transfer was never in my plans.
“I have never considered it (the United game) to be a chance to show that I deserve to stay at Liverpool. It was a big derby but, on the other hand, it was also just another league game.” (Sky Sports)
If he gave no thought to leaving, why didn’t he come out in the window and say he never wanted to leave?
