The festive moments culminated when Martin Škrtel’s wife Barbora and son Matteo came to the lawn and, together with the iconic Slovak tracker, received a thank-you note from the representatives of the Trnava club Petr Mach, Andrej Kalina and the representative of the fans Anton Krippel for a beautiful career. His teammates came on the field in jerseys with the number 37 and the name Škrtel. They held them in their hands during a joint pre-match photo. Link from Torres and a symbolic number A greeting from Fernando Torres, a Spanish striker with whom the Slovak tracker of his time played on a team in the Premier League, ran on the big screen.

Martin Škrtel did not avoid emotions, he was immediately surrounded by all his teammates and there was applause from the stands. The cauldron in the north stand made a mosaic of the number 37 from the cartons. He fired the place for Marek Ujlaky Jr., an adolescent whose age was once entertained by the Trnava stands with a brilliant left-hander. However, while he was an offensive midfielder, the young man is a tracker. Nevertheless, he eventually scored the only goal of the match, which was achieved by Bamidele Yusuf. Martin Škrtel did not avoid tears of emotion during the about four-minute section that the rotation took. “I don’t remember any of it. I haven’t trained since the cup final, I did one practice yesterday. I was a little worried about how physically I would last. Time passed slowly, until at the 35th minute I began to realize that the end was near. Then came the emotions. “Of course it will make you feel when you hear people singing your name and in such numbers, you see all your acquaintances, teammates, family …” said Škrtel after the match with the journalists. Everything was escalating. One end of his career had to come. I’m glad that a lot of spectators came to the match, they created a great atmosphere and that we didn’t get a goal in 37 minutes and we finally won the match. I think the day was good for us. ”Beer? I’m retired, I can come to the mixing zone, obviously relaxed. He even held a glass of beer in his hand and drank a taste of it in front of the cameras. “I’m retired, I can now. We had to hide so far … When we wanted to have a beer, we had to be in limited numbers and of course in some form. Retirees can afford it, so maybe I’ll forgive me, he smiled broadly.

Suffice it to say, he takes the offer. “There’s still time for everything. This week has been emotionally demanding, I didn’t imagine it would be so hard to tell my teammates because it was the hardest and then the public. Thoughts are fresh after all. With the president and the owners of Spartacus, I agreed that I would take some time to rest so that I could go out physically and mentally and put my back together as best I could, and then I would start to think about it and see what we could get to, of course. Trnava is a club I love, I had the opportunity to act here as a player, if I could continue in another position, it would be good, but I have to think about it, it’s not written anywhere “Whoever was successful as a player will also be successful as an official. I’ll put it together and I’ll definitely come back to it in my thoughts.” They chanted several times during the post-match thank you shout “Martin Škrtel stay in Trnava.” The player was also invited to the stands, they put a megaphone in his hands and he then started the Spartak chants with a cauldron. “I enjoy the support of the fans, I feel like one of them. I support the club for a long time, when I have the opportunity, I will also visit the fans. Watching the match from the boiler is completely different from the VIP areas. to me, but also to the whole team. ” On the day of the match, the ultras of Spartac hung a banner with the inscription Škrťo, thanks on the railing of the City Tower, the tallest building in Trnava. This has not happened to any player in the past. “The information I received and the photos that came to me waved with me all day. I had tears in my eyes a few times. I appreciate it very much and I thank the people for it. on every step.” Promise for boys from Ráztočno After the meeting, Martin Škrtel invited teammates and co-workers from the club together with their partners for dinner. There, they also gave him a cake behind the cabin, which was baked by the well-known confectioner Monika Sisková from Majcichov. Martin Škrtel will start enjoying free time from Monday. In the coming days, he also plans to make a film that maps his football career from the beginning to the last match. “It’s something new, interesting. So far, my staff and I have worked in Trnava, now it’s time to visit the places I’ve played before. Basically, I’ll be back in Liverpool for the first time since I left and meet the people I’ve met with. The same will be in Istanbul. It will probably be harder to visit Russia, but I’m glad we agreed and I believe that the film will be successful and everyone will like it. ” What will happen next with the connection Škrtel – football? “I’ve spent my whole life in the team. I can’t imagine well enough not to come to the cabin every morning and be a part of the life going on, all those fun … At the same time, I’m going to miss the adrenaline of wrestling. These are the feelings that Once you experience it, it will stay in you. For now, it’s over for me, but I believe that I will put my back together to such an extent that it will allow me to play at least a few matches for my native Ráztočno. I also gave the same to the boys from Ráztočno, so I believe that I will succeed, “added the participant of the World Championships 2010 and EURO 2016. Author: © VIDEO list: RTVS, TASR Source: TASR
