Slovakia continued their impressive form in the last few months after earning yet another Euro 2016 qualification victory.
Liverpool and Slovakia defender Martin Skrtel has denied suggestions that he is feeling regret for his stamp on United goalkeeper David de Gea which earned him a three match ban from the English FA.
Skrtel has consistently denied that the stamp was intentional. The referee failed to spot this incident, which occurred in the final minutes of the recent 2-1 defeat against United, but it was captured on television. The English FA have used the video evidence to retrospectively ban the player. He becomes one of the few to have been banned for a stamp this season.
Just as with every other transfer window, midfielder Marek Hamsik continues to be linked with several clubs.
This time around, Premier League giants like Manchester United and Liverpool are reportedly interested in signing the Slovakian international. Since Napoli are not doing too well in the Italian league, the 27-year-old may finally decide to leave.
Slovakia handed the European Champion Spain a shocking defeat in the qualifier last night.
It’s the first defeat that Spain has suffered versus Slovakia in 5 competitive encounters. Out of the last 4, La Roja had won 3 and the other one was a draw.
Now, Slovakia has overtaken Spain in the Group C points table. They have 6 points from 2 games with a goal differential of plus 2.
Arsenal’s Arsene Wenger has already signing a high profile player after securing the services of Alexis Sanchez from Barcelona as he arrived to the Emirates Stadium with a transfer fee in the region of €35 million. Arsenal is not known or characterized by having an enormous budget to sign their respective targets or at least not so much compared to other top clubs in Europe and the Premier League.
Marek Hamsek does not have any intention to move out in the summer. For him leaving Serie A giants does not arise. There is no tussle with Rafa Benitez the manager as he stated. His future is in Naples according to him.
Liverpool legend John Aldridge has claimed that he could not control his laughter after learning that defender Martin Skrtel have scored more goals than former Liverpool striker Fernando Torres this season. Torres has been struggling for form ever since he left Liverpool in 2011. He has managed just 19 league goals for Chelsea in more than 100 appearances. He is widely expected to leave Chelsea at the end of the campaign with the likes of Inter Milan and Atletico Madrid showing a lot of interest. Skrtel has been enjoying his best goal scoring season with Liverpool.
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has revealed that he is extremely happy with the way Slovakian defender Martin Skrtel has become a leader in the team after almost coming close to the exit door in the summer.
Skrtel fell out of favour with Brendan Rodgers last season and he rarely featured for the first-team. He was expected to leave the club in the summer with the likes of Napoli showing interest in him. He moved to Napoli would have reunited him with Rafa Benitez, who was the man who brought into Anfield in the first place.
Slovakia star Marek Hamsik has said that his club Napoli cannot win the Italian Serie A title this season. The midfielder is regarded as one of the transfer targets for Manchester United.
The fact that the player once again set to fail in winning the title may actually result in the transfer of the 26-year-old, who had a great first half of the campaign. Hamsik was one of the reasons behind Napoli's imperious form under Rafa Benitez at the start of the season. Like many others to the club, his form has also decreased in recent weeks.
