Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel could be on his way out of Anfield after calling the clubs latest contract offering ‘unacceptable’.
The Slovak international started 48 of Liverpool’s 58 matches last season and still has one year remaining on his contract with the Merseyside club.
The 30-year-old has been in negotiations with the club for several months now, and feels that given his age and value to the team the offer they have put on the table is miles from where he believes it should be.
“I am still waiting for the new contract,” he told Slovakian media agency Aktualne ahead of Slovakia’s European Qualifier against Macedonia.
“I think a contract like this is offered to players who are much older than me or to players who have had some health complications. But I feel good and not so old to sign this contract.
“Also I think my health is OK. The contract offered is unacceptable for me. This is the reason why I didn’t sign it.
“I still have a contract running with the club. There was some speculation about interest from other clubs but that is not coming from me. Now I am with the national team and will be going on holiday after that.”
