How bad is Martin Skrtel?!

As mentioned above the footage of Martin Skrtel’s sending off against England, for much of the World Cup qualifier in Slovakia those watching were glad of the efforts from the former Liverpool defender.

After all, the game was so bad between England and Slovakia that Skrtel appeared to be on a one man mission to keep it interesting.

In the end, Skrtel received a second yellow for a stamp on Harry Kane, but it could have been much worse and the Fenerbahce central defender should have gone much earlier.

In the corresponding game at Euro 2016, Skrtel had a fine match as Slovakia held on for a 0-0 draw. On Sunday night it was a totally different story.

Liverpool fans celebrate

Liverpool fans, who now have the likes of Joel Matip and Ragnar Klavan were celebrating that they no longer have to watch Martin Skrtel in their backline.

Even last season it became abundantly clear that Skrtel could not be trusted. Tonight confirmed the judgement of Jurgen Klopp.

And, it is amazing to think how Skrtel posted on social media that Jurgen Klopp was a “d***head” just before he did leave Anfield!


In the end, Skrtel’s sending off truly mattered as England grabbed a last minute win through Adam Lallana…
