‘They are top players”: Martin Skrtel states that Liverpool has five players he would love to manage

Martin Skrtel, a former Liverpool defender, has expressed his desire to manage Jurgen Klopp’s current group of central defenders.

Skrtel was speaking to liverpoolfc.com after his addition to the Liverpool FC Legends squad was announced.

When asked about Klopp’s options in his former position, the Slovakian responded that he would love the opportunity to coach five specific players.

“I would love to be the manager if I had players like Virgil, Matip, Konate, Joe Gomez and Phillips,” said Skrtel. “If you see the centre-backs we have, it’s maybe the best squad in this position in the world. They are top players and I would love to be involved if I’m the manager and have players like them.”

Indeed, Liverpool is well-stocked at center-back. However, with Konate and Matip currently out due to injury, the Reds could use a player like Skrtel to fill the void.

Skrtel’s assertion regarding Liverpool’s defensive options is accurate. It would be difficult to find another team with the defensive quality of The Reds.

In the Premier League, it is possible that only Manchester City can match Liverpool’s four goals with Phillips on the bench.

The strength of John Stones, Aymeric Laporte, Ruben Dias, and Nathan Ake must be acknowledged. In addition, the cost of these four players was approximately £210 million.

Liverpool’s five-man squad cost nearly half as much at £114m. 

When you consider that £75 million was spent solely on Van Dijk, you can begin to appreciate how well Liverpool has recruited for the position in recent years.

No, we stand by Skrtel’s claim that Liverpool’s four central defenders are the best in the world. Now let’s get everyone in shape.
