Martin Skrtel says he would give serious consideration to any offers in the summer after a disappointing campaign at Liverpool.

The Slovakia international spent most of the second half of the season on the sidelines after falling out-of-favour under Brendan Rodgers.

And the 28-year-old, who signed a long-term deal last August, is unsure of his Reds future following one of his “worst” seasons at the Anfield outfit.

“I have not had any specific offers. But if some should come and they interest me, I would probably consider it seriously,” Skrtel told Dennik Sport.

“I am not saying that I want to leave at any cost. I feel sorry for what happened in this season. But I have been here for five-and-a-half years and I have built a position here.”

He added: “It was one of the worst seasons in my career and certainly the worst during my time at Liverpool.

“After the game at Manchester United [in January], the coach decided he wanted to change the team and justified to me that we lacked the organization and defensive leadership personality. That was Carragher.

“Obviously I was not happy, it bugged me. On the other hand, I realise that only 11 can play and the eleven the coach chooses now is without me. I decided to add even more in training, so I was ready for a chance to show that I belong on the field, and not on the pitch.”

Skrtel has scored nine goals in 206 appearances for Liverpool after completing a £6.5m move from Zenit St Petersburg in 2008.
