Skrtel: I want to be like Soto

Martin Skrtel is eager to learn from Sotirios Kyrgiakos when it comes to scoring goals.
The 26-year-old thinks his defensive colleague is the best header of the ball at Anfield - if not throughout the entire Barclays Premier League.

And he hopes Kyrgiakos's abilities in opponents' penalty areas will rub off.
Skrtel told "I think he's dangerous for every single set play, every single corner and free-kick. I think he's absolutely No.1 in the air at our club and maybe in the Premier League.

"He's showed he's a good player and that he could score a lot of goals for Liverpool.
"I try to do it but it's not easy because our opponents always try to look after the centre-backs. I've been a bit unlucky but I'll try to improve and try to be more dangerous."
Skrtel has a solitary goal to his name in three years at Anfield, scored last season against Manchester City.

He is more prolific for Slovakia, firing five times in 47 appearances.
