Liverpool defender opens up and admits delight at Rodgers signing of Englishman

Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel has admitted his delight at the clubs signing of Danny Ings.

The England under-21 striker joined Liverpool from Burnley this summer after his contract had run out.

And Skrtel is relieved to have him on side after getting the run around from his last year.

“I know he didn’t score (against Liverpool last season) but facing him was tough, really tough,” said the defender on the Sky Sports website.

“I remember how he never stopped running and moving.

“If you switched off for even a second he was gone and he’s been the same in training here. I’m glad he’s with us now.

“The amount of work he puts in every day is huge and I’m hoping he can score lots of goals this season.” © 2017 Frontier Theme
