      “I am truly sorry for the situation and what was written under my name,” he posted on Instagram. “These days, when I am very busy, I have asked my close friend to help me manage my social media profiles.

      “He got taken away and he did not realise how serious the comments may appear.

      “I would like to stress that the opinion he expressed is not my opinion.”

      So quick to hang when it suits, I despair at times.

      Always awesome when you can blame someone or something else for your screwups ;D

      Way to throw your "close friend" under the bus, Martin.

      And how the f**k is any professional footballer so "very busy" they can't handle their own social media?

      Skrtel might not have typed that out but hes obviously been bitching to his friends about Jürgen

      I liked Martin, in fact I still like Martin and I still rate him in the right set up. No question for a time he was gery good for us.

      Now its best to call it quits and move on however. This aint a great way to end it but there we have it.

      Footballers and social media - lethal combination.

      Maybe he has been bitching about him but that shouldn't be held against him, not everybody gets on with the same person.

      Yeah I doubt Lucas would go down as a great either but that does not mean he was not good for the club and vice versa.

      Typical anymore when someone goes out the door its a big boot into they're backside...some players do deserve it (Balotelli, Aspas etc) never seen Skrtel not try for the club or not give his best.

      Appreciate the 8 years and if your angry about the way he played be angry at the club for not buying better.

      Don't really care one way or the other, but it's foolish for Skrtel to act like he played no part. Why do people always have to take one side or the other?

      So I have now become you and you have morphed into Fed.....Think I got the better of that transition. :)

      Where has this myth of him being this solid defender come from?

      He is bloody shambolic. He makes massive mistakes each and every game he plays.

      Never established himself as one of the leagues best centre halves during his time here. He didn't even establish himself as our best centre half during his time here!

      He has been at the heart of all our defensive woes for years. Some fans are completely blinded by it and like to think he's some scary tough defender which is just bollocks.

      How he has lasted this long here I'll never know. We will be far stronger as a team/squad without martin Skrtel in it.

      Are you seriously saying he's been at the heart of every defensive problem since he's been here? Don't talk f**king stupid. Not even Glen Johnson was responsible for every bad defensive error and he was on a different level of shambolic to everybody else.

      Since when did I say he was the best?

      Sorry mate but you're full of sh*t.

      Skrtel was at the heart of every defensive error for the last 8 years?! Dramatic much. Next you'll be blaming Moreno for Brexit.

      And does it mean you're a bad player if you don't establish yourself as the best in the league? That means Firmino, Coutinho, Sturridge are all not good enough?

      He has been steadily declining the last couple of seasons but in his time here I would describe him as  pretty solid. I remember the "nearly" season of 13/14 as well he was an absolute beast, 36 appearances for us that season.

      Are you Slovakian?

      The lad is sh*te. end of. He wouldn't get a game for any of our rivals chasing the same silverware we are. end of.

      We defend far better without him in the team. More recently, this season just gone, look at the improvement both Sakho and Lovren made in their form once Skrtel was injured & then benched.  To some extent, Mignolets form also improved. Is that just a co-incidence to you then?

      For such a tough defender who bounces into burger king and demands a big mac and gets one it was embarrassing watching him mark physical forwards who are all about hold up play. The likes of Droga just used to laugh and bully him.

      Very rarely do you see Skrtel win a header and for years we have suffered conceding so many goals from set pieces and yes, he has been at the heart of it.

      Lost count how many own goals he has scored and I was sick and tired of watching him pull shirts in the box/dangerous positions outside the box too.

      Am I blaming him entirely for our defensive problems in the last how many years? No im not. So put your dummy back in. I said he was at the heart of it. Which he was. He has been here 8 seasons and made hundreds of appearances for us. Therefore, it can't be disputed.

      Im sure ive seen carragher slate him somewhere too basically saying he is sh*te. Now as a footballer I didn't think carragher was particular special either, but I do appreciate his knowledge on the game.

      Lets just see next season shall we how we get on going into a season where Martin Skrtel isn't first choice CB for us. I strongly predict we will defend far better as a team and it will be so much more refreshing to watch and we won't be leaking in anywhere near the silly goals we are used to. Lets just wait and see if we miss Martin Skrtel shall we.

      I didn't say you said he was the best either. For somebody playing for Liverpool and spending 8 years here, making hundreds of appearances for us and never establishing himself as one of the leagues best or even our own best is quite incredible really.  No wonder we have been stuck in mediocrity for so many years when our fans think players like Skrtel are brilliant.

      Mangala, Blind, Paulista, Cahill etc. wouldn't get many games for us at centre back but they're still in teams at the top getting game time. Using the amount of own goals as a stick to beat him with is pathetic. Carragher scored more, does that mean he was sh*t too?

      Your exact words were: "He has been at the heart of all our defensive woes for years." It's complete and utter bollocks. Last season you have a point but throughout his entire career, that's a lot of mistakes you're putting solely on his shoulders. Of course it can be disputed. You can't just come out with a ridiculous statement with no evidence to back it up and say "it can't be disputed". :D. You'd be a sh*te lawyer!

      Skrtel wasn't first choice last season and we were still a shambles at times when he wasn't playing.

      Again, when the f**k did I say he was/is brilliant? I wish you'd use your eyes to f**king read. I said he's been a solid member of the squad which he has. If you want to carry on slating him for Christmas not being 365 days a year then do so but you should probably get a life at some point.

      Can't be arsed discussing Skrtel any further, he's sh*te, don't need to say any more.

      Anybody who says otherwise or says he has been a good player for us or a 'solid member of the squad' is deluded.
