Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel has admitted his performances need to improve if he wants to earn his place back in the Liverpool first team.

Skrtel was out of favour with manager Brendan Rodgers at the back end of the season and started just one Premier League game after the defeat to Manchester United in January.

Kolo Toure looks set to join Anfield on July 1 so this leaves only one centre-back position to fill, and Skrtel knows there must be improvements.

He told the Liverpool Daily Post: “It wasn’t my best season and I know I made a few mistakes. It could’ve been better and I will do my best to improve and be better in the future.

“I can always learn something new. I will try to improve my positional play and my game with the ball. Every single day I can improve something and that is what I will try to do.”

Skrtel lost his place in the team to Jamie Carragher, who retired at the end of the season, but there is still a lot of competition in the Liverpool back-four.

The Slovakian has made 206 appearances since joining from Zenit St. Petersburg five years ago and he has scored nine goals in his Liverpool career so far.

Daniel Agger also remains with the club and the Merseyside outfit are confident they can keep the Dane despite rumoured interest from Monaco.
