Former Juventus president Giovanni Cobolli Gigli has said that Juventus had the opportunity to sign Napoli's Slovakian star Marek Hamšík when he was at Brescia, but ultimately turned down the opportunity.

It has proved to be a costly affair for Juventus, as they have been struggling to replace the old guard. They have just returned to competing at the top of the Italian Serie A, but Cobolli Gigli reckons that Juventus could have won the title last season had they had a player like Marek Hamšík.


Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel has been named as the Slovakian player of the year for the third time in his career.

Martin Skrtel currently plays for Liverpool as the first choice central defender.

Despite the presence of experienced Jamie Carragher in the squad, Martin Skrtel has been the first choice for Kenny Dalglish this season.

His exploits at the back of the Liverpool defence have not gone unnoticed, as he has won the Slovakian player of the year award. This is the third time he has won the award in his career, thus making it even more special.
