Skrtel on verge of Reds return

The Slovakian centre-back fractured a metatarsal in the 3-1 Europa

League win over Unirea Urziceni on February 25. “I had another scan

so that my doctors could be absolutely sure that everything was

OK,” said Skrtel. “They were satisfied with what they saw. “It

means that I can spend my time on the running machine from now on.

It is a bit rigid but I hope that I can start working with the ball

next week.”
