SPARTANS! Liverpool’s Martin Skrtel smacked himself round the face to get pumped for 2nd half v Man City [GIF]

Martin Skrtel is a warrior footballer.

The Slovakian approaches every game like it was last, and took his drive and desire to another level for Liverpool’s potential title-decider against Man City.

The Slovakian was at his zealous best yesterday, scoring the crucial second goal with a classic header.

Coming back out for the 2nd half, Skrtel had a few quiet words to himself to get pumped up, like a warrior preparing for battle with a war-cry, and then smacked himself round the face a couple of times for good measure.

Spartans! What is your profession? AH OOH, AH OOH, AH OOOH!
