Martin Skrtel is seriously considering his future at Liverpool after revealing that he's endured 'one of the worst seasons' in his career.
The Slovakian defender has struggled to make many first-team appearances this season due to the partnership of Daniel Agger and Jamie Carragher.
He told reporters: "It was one of the worst seasons in my career and certainly the worst during my time at Liverpool."
The 28-year old was dropped after the defeat to Manchester United at Old Trafford in January and rarely featured since.
The robust defender was disappointed with the way in which Brendan Rodgers went about installing Jamie Carragher in his place.
"Obviously I was not happy, it bugged me."
With Jamie Carragher retired and Rodgers seemingly unconvinced with youngster Sebastian Coates, Liverpool are short of central-defenders. However Skrtel is pondering his future despite the opportunity of first-team football next season at Anfield. "I have not had any specific offers but if some should come and they interest me, I would probably consider it seriously." Skrtel told Slovakian Newspaper
It's still yet to be seen if the club are willing to sell Skrtel, something the Slovak acknowledges is their decision.
"The club has the biggest say in this in any case, because they have the right for it with me being contracted. Besides, I am not saying that I want to leave at any cost. I feel sorry for what happened in this season."
Skrtel joined Liverpool from Zenit St. Petersburg in 2008 for £6.5million and has made 151 league appearances in his five years at Anfield.
Rodgers has already moved in an attempt to cover the lack of centre-defenders with the transfer of Kolo Toure almost complete.
