Skrtel: Liverpool wouldn’t let me go to Napoli
The Slovakian international became a subject of speculation in Naples since the arrival of coach Rafael Benitez, who signed the defender for his former club Liverpool in 2008 from Zenit St. Petersburg.
“Benitez wanted me, but when I spoke to Liverpool the club told me that they had no intention to let me go and after that statement I never forced them to sell me,” Skrtel told Sport.sk.
“A move in the winter? I live in the present.”
The 28-year-old central defender have played 152 Premier League matches for the Reds.
